Awesome thread guys- thats a goood look for all the members. My problem is I can't find a crashed Focus! Also, how hard is a Gauge swap? What's this talk of resetting the needles to certain spots? I dont want to get in there and find out its beyond what I was prepared to do.

They always ask why my car wil do 35mph in first gear.

cool for about 30 min then i was wondering why my idle speed was at 900 rpm is this normal or what? no mods to the motor yet... just wondering why a 4 cyl is idleing higher than my Ram 2500 with a v8.
