warneej's FR11 build thread #2: The EAP SVTf!

Got some stuff going on the other car over the past few days and while doing the garage day this morning I actually threw some shtuff on.



The current to-do list:

(Red=completed)
-Replace coil cover
-Replace timing cover
-Replace battery cover
-Re-powdercoat the valve cover
-The mother of all cleaning jobs
-Remove some stickers?
-Fix window tint
-Figure out what that speak/rattle is underneath...

Sounds good for now.

Found a coil cover on eBay for super cheap with ALL the tabs. After bidding on it I realized that the stupid shipping made it more than brand new at Ford. facepalm. Oh well, its in and looks good. Old coil cover is For Sale here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...65#post3539065

Look at all those tabs! COUNT EM!


Versus the old one. Where are the tabs?!?


Lookin good all installed and junk!



And for giggles, the world's fastest palm tree most convenient air filter holder-while-drying ever!

No because it hooks to the SVT valve cover on one side and a clip on the SVT thermostat housing on the other.

Yes but oddly enough it bubbled up on me about a month ago. Sad really. So now I need to get it redone. Looks so badass under the hood being as it matches the car perfectly.

That is an immaculate engine bay! I love the color-matching valve-covers.

Raced the $#!+ out of the car this past weekend, or rather my brother did--I was on a cruise

Some choice pictures from the event















Whole album of unedited photos can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/a...=1747928589736 (lemme know if that link works)

Clicking through the pics in the album is awesome, plays just like a video of his lap
