That EGR plate is for regular Zetec only it says. Non SVT. Anyone know where I can find the SVT one? Thanks for the info though.

My bad...wasn't even thinking about it. I didn't even know there was a different. I'll keep an eye out for an SVT one.

SVT doesn't have EGR. I'm confused...do you see an EGR valve on your car somewhere?

Ahhh, the lemming effect, eh?

No harm no foul

You should be pretty damn close to being done. When does it all go on?

I have the Spec Stage 3 clutch kit installed with the steel flywheel installed. I do see where the rpm's climb faster. The clutch is a lot heavier than my stock clutch to depress though. It does have a very solid feel to it though. I do not have the low rpm "stumble" anymore if you give too little gas with the AC on. The lighter steel flywheel does help a lot with that. Now it is time to install the turbo kit :)

Good luck. Hopefully you have less trouble than I did.

Make sure to prime the turbo good and long!!!!

Sure will. I don't want to redo all this or have turbo issues. Just a nice simple install and go :)
