Engine out

Hello everyone.

I just got a toteled svt that I'm going to repair. In order to do the repairs, I need to pull the motor. Is there any mods that I should do while it's out? I'm new to the focus world, I come from the Cougar world. Looking forward to driving the svt!

Thanks!

Car has under 20k on it. It's pretty much brand new.

Not enough money for boost right now.

build up the bottom end, get it ready for boost if you ever decide to...if not than you got a bullet proof N/A motor

What is this DSI clip?

Is there any good aftermarket headers for the SVT or just stick with stock SVT ones? I'm pretty sure the headers on the car are smashed.

Thanks everyone!
