yeah... its turning into quite the pain in the ass... id say pull the trans and motor out of the contour.... and/or jsut leave the contour... wait til the Focus's motor goes... swap.

thats ABOUT the only time its worth all the work i think...

altho now that i know what has to be modded future swappers may have an easier time.

anyone know of a good place to relocate my coilpack to? the thing cant sit on the valve cover like its supposed to and the spark plug wires arent that long.

i will for sure man... i'm actually gonna put it where the AC lines are supposed to go.....

cause AC is for sissies... as is having the heater core hooked up... as is power steering.

it will run.... it will drive.... thats all that matters.

eh, I would use at least power steering on that beast.

Hey Jonny, it's not power steering, it's power in that direction!! Yes I'm being sarcastic, can you tell?
