Got my SVT back. Dealer installed a new DSI motor and a "stock" airbox (its a stand focus airbox...ugh). Drove off from the dealership and the light pops back on.

So I'm ordering the SCT tuner and I'm thinking I should check out the alternator cable in the back of the engine since the red battery light flicks on sometimes under braking.

Any suggestions? I've got new plugs and wires to put on too... but no garage (or even driveway) to work in.

The saga continues...

Stig, you want an st. Trust me on that one. Quick as shit after cai and exhaust with 2nd cat delete. Mine kept up with an svt with the same mods on the highway a little while ago!

Plus, the sound of a duratec is a beautiful tone. Sorry zetec owners, but you gotta be careful, cause it can get ricey fast!



But in all honesty. ST. The biggest engine EVER in a focus! You know you want to! And if you ever want boost, fswerks is waiting for you!

Come to the dark side. We have cookies.

And it's really starting to piss me off that 06Roush is still allowed to post here. Even though I never got scammed by him, it's clear what the guy's intentions are. And it's pathetic that his douchebag ass isn't permabanned.

yeah im pretty sure ill go with an ST. for one reason, they are newer then the SVTs and from what ive seen, have much lower miles on them. plus, i realy like the look of them! and they aren't that expensive from what ive seen either.

i've heard about all the crap he was pullin a while back. i thought he was banned. guess not. if everyone knows he's a scammer, why doesnt everyone just ask to have him banned? i mean why r they still lettin him post?

I have no idea. I think so that he can make things right...but he won't.

On a good note, Eibach approved my front springs as well. So looks like I'll be getting a whole new Pro kit for free.

Which track? If my Miata wasn't down right now I'd be going to a few in the next couple weeks.

Hmm, haven't heard of that. I was planning on going to the Shawano USAIR track and some WIR autox events.
