Oil line is under pressure, shouldn't be a problem. Also go to Turbosmart Web site. They show you a few different ways to hook up the vacuum lines for the controller to waste gate.
And I dont think the Focus had a water temp sender. Its just a probe into the side of the head that reads head temp. Iirc.

Thanks Rocco!
Right now just finishing up coolant lines, some ground wires making sure all vac lines are hooked up! Extend some wires and fill this bitch up with fluids and see if she runs lol

Hey Tom, the temp sender doesn't actually get into the coolant, does it?
And the Turbosmart ebc worked really well. Have you had problems with them before .?

Starter can spin but not be touching the gears, unbolt it and crank it, gear should move out to touch the flywheel.

Edit: you already primed the oil pump, right?

You didn't install a new oil pump did you? If not after a few cranks it should show oil pressure on the gauge.
