Starter

So in my engine rebuild project I've now come across reinstalling the starter. When I removed the starter months ago the head was already so it was a breeze to do. I know have the motor back in the car with the head attached. What's the best way to get the starter in and wired up. From what I gathered its a nightmare.

03 focus with the SPI motor

are you kidding yourself? anything involving work on the engine is a nightmare... prior to my '01 focus I had a bmw 323i E46 year model 1999... much easier to play around with on the engine....anything involving work on my fofo has proven at times to give me great headaches

It's easy go from under the car and you will be able to pop that shit and bolt it down.
I've done it a handful of times in the last couple months
