Hey folks, have a leaky intake valve in cylinder 3 of a 2013 focus st. Wet test confirmed good cylinders and a local midas did a leakdown test and confirmed intake is leaking and no air coming through cylinder. Need a shop experienced with focus st's to pull head and machine/replace head (i understand engines dropped is preference). Getting various quotes but would love experienced suggestions please to metro detroit shops. Thankyou!

Hello, Fairway Engine Exchange in Sterling Heights MI took care of us. $3500 (engine included) with 1 year warranty parts and labor. They found us an engine with 29k miles on it and did a professional job.

Thanks for your reply, so am I correct that repair existing was prohibitive and a second hand engine was the best way forward. I’m working my way through options as my st has run into problems with cylinder one no compression. Getting assessed at present to confirm fault.
