Exclamation Anyone near El Paso that's selling an SVT engine for a focus?

I really need one. I'm tired of using the bus to go to work. I have to wait like 1 hour to get to my work. If I had my SVT I'd be there in 20 mins. /: My engine broke down on me. Stopped making compression and I need a new one. Please help a brother out! And yes I've tried everything and they told me that I'm better off with a new one or rebuild mine bit ends up costing almost the same for getting a used one u___u

Well ... if you take your head off your ride and have a machine shop check it out ... you may actually save some money by getting some used valves and machining the head.

Did anyone tell you what caused the engine to lose compression? I am thinking a bent valve or 2.

Oh and to the forum.

Hey hey hey, welcome, I am in El Paso. There are almost NO SVTF parts here. I have seen like two or three SVTF's and I have been here 18 months.
