Thanks! There were three fires burning outside the park that were putting some great color into the sunsets. Took the shot about 20 minutes after sunset, with Grace parked at the base of Watchman Peak (which you can see in the reflection behind the rear wheel well).

Thanks to you. Was happy to give you my vote.

Hey Guys & Gals... Well today I started rebuilding my Garrett T3 from the SVO Mustang. I had alot of trouble getting the compressor nut off but overcame that problem with a little propane massage. As I started the tear down it seems that the 270 degree thrust bearing gave out and started pouring oil out the turbine side.

So while reassembling the turbo I found a little wear on the shaft but nothing big. I used GPopShop's rebuild kit and replaced the carbon seal on the shaft itself, all the journal bearings and snap rings. Got a new 270 degree thrust bearing and then it happened...

I found out that I was miss informed of the year the turbo came out of. I bought a 1-piece seal for the compressor side and which turns out that I need the 4-piece carbon seal... DAMN!!!!

I will be waiting for GPopShop to email me back with a price for the seal and in the mean time I will be trying to find this turbo balancing place called Max RPM???? on Kitsap Way??? Any info would be great.

After my turbo is complete then I will start off with buying F2's Tubular Turbo Manifold, the their Downpipe and assemble the system once again. I already have one of Tom's tune that I have paid for so its just a matter of time till I am boosted again!!!

Max RPM motorsports is by the wells fargo there on 6th street in bremerton (Kitsap way turns into 6th st at callow...I think) It will be on the north side of the street. They have a great show/waiting room. Thats where I had the Focus Dynoed

So Today I bought a one off engine cover from the For Sale Thread here on FF. Then I got in contact with GPopShop and ordered my Carbon Seals for 22.50 to my house. Then I found the correct Intercooler for the Focus on F2's website under Clearance and bought that.

Don't remeber who wanted my old intercooler?
