qweesy, definitely let us know when you are available when you get a chance. We will get yours running. My Timing Belt ran up to 130K before it went. Not the greatest financial time during that time. ... but now its running strong ... after other replacements. but thats another story.

As for SVT VS World meet, yes me are meeting at the Tommy Vaughn location with the WS Mustangs and then rolling from there. More details on that thread. Since I am taking photos and video ... I will have my car, but also have a co-driver driving my SVT.

Well I am hoping to get that day off so we can have it done on Sunday during the meet, now I know the meet is about bbq and chilling out, not so much about getting dirty under the car, so I will try to do as much as possible by myself following your guide. If not sunday then this thursday or next tuesday/wednesday.

And just to make sure, do you have the timing tool?

I know guys, it's been a long time, but the Focus has been a nightmare for a long time now. Finally she's running again, but now I have to replace a side skirt, well both of them since only one is broken and I don't want to order parts from Germany this time.

I'm divorced, sadly, and gratefully at the same time. Things are best this way. My son is doing great though and he's growing and learning at an accelerated pace. The Benzo is tuned with custom long tube headers with race cats and x-pipe. She's pushing about 550 to 560 hp currently. I just got a new set of 33's for my 4x4 F150. I've been quite a busy bee.

Work's gotten in my way for many of the meets, but I'm back to nights and I'm off on Sunday for a short time before I head back to the sandbox. Looking forward to seeing you all again, even if it's just for a short time
