Boosting it will allow you to get rid of the DSI entirely. You should be able to just replace the manifold and be back on the road, though.

5year/100k warranty?

When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?

This sounds more like an insurance claim than warranty.

I have a pending sale on a complete motor. If it falls through you could pull yours and install this one this weekend. Or tow to me and I do the install in one weekend. Also have just intake -SVT or 2000 if you want to try that first.

2000 focus wont start 2.0 spi

it sounds like its missing a spark plug but the sound is coming from the back by the intake manifold and it backfires thru the throttle body. could it be a blown intake gasket?

Not gonna lie I've seen this happen in person. A svt got dropped off at my shop with a no crank no fire issue. Come to find out the timing belt snapped, bent all the valves, and the intake manifold was blown to pieces. I have pictures but no clue how it happened
