If your not going to force feed or juice the motor there isn't much point in anything other than the big three, oil, temp, amp.

Any other guage would be just for show.

o.o thread revival time...

<.< >.> its mah thread i can do it xD

anyways car i was done drove around and is back as a project car as i still have the Blue focus xD i wanna go manual trans on it ehhhhh i know 3 years later but when have you seen hobbiests actually give up modding when its done

sorry about dissapearing life took a twist and work took over LOL

xD i havent forgotten about all of you and i still have my Focuses

=( my blue focus went in for a major surgery after realising my wheel was slowly turning on its own ( the wheel would have to be set x degrees to go straight and the second indication something major was when turning the tires would squeel.....

i knew when the wheel was 30 degrees of center and its never hit a curb something major broke.. i sent the car to ford and got the worst of news x.x k-frame (suspension subframe) basically collapsed on itself so had that replaced even at 3 mechanics opinions to scrap the car because under the doors had some rust... es those panels can be easily cut out and new ones welded in and painted its not a frame structure or anything major..

either way k frame ordered and received ford went in to replace it broke a pile of things and they took the initiative to replace the parts and not charge me for most while in i had all of the engine mounts replaced ( even if it didn't need it) may aswell seeing the cars what 11 years old now

got it back and it runs/drives like a dream and the front end is tight again they said there was alot of bad bushings all over the place, on top part of the kframe actually rotted so bad it broke away on removal..

ehhhhh i swear one of fords major defects is getting to me the fact they use undersized wiring for everything and has a habit of rotting at the connectors and braking.. so many codes in the 3 years coming back to the same faults... broken wires...
