Im assuming you used a timing set? If not I have the bar n shit from massive to do our engines.

Side note, so I fixed the laser...kinda. I think I had my battery in backwards... I also feel like a super idiot.

Anyways, I put the new starter in and got her to fire up, but she still aint working right. When I braked hard she died, pooped the hood and the wing nut on the postitive terminal was glowing, and my ground line that I had taped melted my tape :(. Gonna replace that ground line since about 80% of the wire is broke off of the end itself. Im thinking that is why that melted but the positive terminal has me perplexed.

Weird thing, non of my auto seatbelt worked and no cdplayer. Also ran kinda weird, gonna have to look at some shits like fuses. I prolly fubard someting up.

I bought a Massive kit and did it myself when the engine was on the stand. My only guess is it jumped a tooth or two somehow, I don't really know. I'm going to crank it to TDC and see where the cams are at before I for sure tear into it.

Le shit has hit ze fan. Baby momma in full drama mode now. Only know because iblacklist wasn't working for a bit. Had to fix that.

Apparently no longer being fb friends is what started the rant. Can't read the rest cause my phone is auto deleting her messages and it picking up and hanging up when she calls.

They work like a standard coilover for the rear of a focus.

Slap it in, adjust height (lowest setting, profit.

That being said, they are cheap coilovers. We'll see how long they last, but assembling them took very little time.
