Idk what the specific problem was for sure. From the quick reading I did it seems like the wastegate and no tuning were the issues though.

It seems cheap enough to purchase and replace the junk and have it custom tuned. Especially if it's still running now someone had to have changed a few things to keep it running since the Focus' early days.
That was sort of my thought as well.

I wouldn't run it as/is but some of the expensive parts like the manifold seem useable

Idiot on ebay buys part from me. Asks about picture (was actual item, 4x pics actually), buys item, receives, says he doesn't like. I say 'ok, send back for a full refund.'

Idiot goes and leaves neg feedback before he even responds to my message. Wrote idiot 'nice' message back and said it's s like him that ruin the eBay community. Also found he leaves 30% of his feedbacks to sellers as (-) and complains and never speaks with the sellers first. G .
