someone from a ford dealer told me they had trouble to make a supercharger work on a svt. they had to take off the svt ecu to replace it for a zx3 ecu.

sounds like this is bullshit to me or like they are not familiar with this.

but i had to tell you because i follow how its going with your car. its truly one of the hottest svtf ever.

As soon as the engine gets running, the hood goes on. Right now it's wrapped in a cozy blanket. LOL

That sounds like a load of BS to me... a non-SVT ECU wouldn't know what to do with the VCT system and lack of EGR.

I'm starting to wonder again if the valves got bent during assembly before the timing belt was installed. I just don't know for sure yet; I'm trying to retrace all my steps. On the other hand, an over-advanced intake or over-retarded exhaust would cause increased overlap and loss in pressure.

Back to the first hand though, I cranked the motor by hand and got 0psi, which means there must be some kind of air leakage (bent valves). ARGH it's driving me bonkers!

It needs a leakdown done, but I don't have an air compressor and I can't bring the car anywhere.

Carlisle was fun. This is not.

Confirmed: valves are bent. All my clearances are off. Head's gotta come back off and I need to pay more attention during assembly.

Noone to blame but myself.

[edit] Actually I'm still a little confused. How is it possible to bend valves in a way that would make me get less clearance? Under normal circumstances, a bent valve should cause an increase in clearance.
