Mine has 220,000 miles and was well maintained by the last owner, gave me all the paperwork and everything. It's not the Speed 3, but feels a lot like it with a few ponies less. And has got me working on my own cars again.
My problem now is found the dogbone on the transmission is bad and bought the VF Engineering mount and decided to install it today. Well can't get the bracket bolt's loose, the mount bolt's came out no problem, the Ford book says two bolt's and remove the mount...YEAH RIGHT.
Well those two bolt's weren't a problem, also read the following thread of FF.
So removed the two motor mount bolts completely but the bracket bolts won't move at all, so decided to spray them with some PB Blaster and let it soak. At this point tried using a 13 socket and a cheater bar on my 3/8 drive, end up breaking the Snap on socket and still can't get the bolt's loose.
The motor mount won't come out with just removing the motor mount bolts.
Any suggestions at this point I might have to pull the Cat to get more room to be able to get to the two bolts, can't get a 1/2 drive with socket in there, and bought another 3/8 drive 12 point 13 socket, moves the whole engine and trans but won't break the bolt loose.
Going to let it soak over night and see if that helps.
Just remember one thing, be careful in Drift Mode in your new Focus RS
You'll enjoy the vf engineering dogbone....GL getting the bolt out.
