btw.. Engine is in bay, just not bolted down yet.
Check out this thread. near the end.http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=246014 Happyhands did it with a 2.0. It's supposed to be better with a 2.3. Tom can give you more info on it. He recommends it. It just needs cleaned up a little.

thanks for the info, the Vegas guys are gonna be happy about that. We need a tuner here! Everyone's tunes are a little off because of the altitude in Las Vegas (1850-3000ft)

well I got the header coming Tuesday.. the IM will have to be thought out, I skimmed thru the post you showed me, thats lots of reading there.

Tom put my mind at ease with the not needing the Wideband O2 for the Tune as long as I do not need the Smog.

So cleaning this Godspeed IM is posted in that thread somewhere?

I think it's posted closer to the end. Not sure. It's been a while since I read it. I read the whole thing in a day though. lol. It took some time.

I am not there, I had tummy tuck yesterday. So for the most part I am useless. he called said might be a tick. hoping it is just air in the system, going to fill it with fliuids and run it for a day, if all is good then I get the turbo tom tune, if bad then pulling it and swapping for another. it has 6 month warrenty.

I just heard the motor, it is Ticking at Idle. just touch the gas, no tick, so I am hoping its a tune issue. I just sent tom the $ so I hope this gets resolved. the new OBX headers make it so much louder..
