My car at focus beach:



And then ...

Got a valve cover


Filled it


Sanded it


Painted it


finally got the valve cover on.

Had to get some hardware from osh and cut it to fit.

Painted the spark plug cover. Assuming it doesn't leak on the way to work tomorrow I'm happy with the end result.







In other news I tried a couple rubber washer setups to solve the light oil leak coming from the inlet on the blower with no success.

The good news is the leak is minor and my wife's expy apparently burns more oil than my focus leaks.

Looks good. Question would you see anything out of running a header? Besides looking better than that stock manifold and cover.

Yah my first smog since boosting is coming up early next year.

Waiting to see how that goes.

From what I understand the stock header in my power range really isn't that bad it's the cat that kills it.

It really shouldn't be that difficult to make a cat delete pipe but Jesus try to get some one to make one <$500... it is not happening.

I'm not a fan of any of the styling mods, but it looks great under the hood. That install looks almost OEM, which is a priority to me.

Dyno yet? Numbers? It's a cool little kit.

i like feedback positive and negative; obviously overall i'm happy with how the car is turning out but i am curious to hear your feedback I’m not an argumentative person so its not going to start a virtual riot like the kids on fb.
