should be a torque monster... be funny to try and see what a dealership would give you.... lol when you say you got the rare option for a v6 in the focus.

rotflmao honhon. that would be the funniest thing to do ever. take it in and ask them to change the plugs or something random. just to see what they say.

also i hope you never have to change those rear plugs looks like it would be a pain in the ass. how hard was the swap?

yeah... its the SVT motor... dual stage intake good sir... and the rear plugs prolly wont be TOO bad... i can just drop the motor down a little if i gotta. and i put some NGK Iridium's in there so im good for a while.

once the motor's in for good i can connect the injector wiring... which will let me put the upper intake on.. the one with the sexy Special Vehicle Team emblem.

Okay, so I'm lazy right now. This is the D25, yes? Looks burly as hell. I like the idea of taking it to the dealership for, say, some "routine maintenance". I wanna see the look on the face of the parts-changer (oops, I mean 'mechanic') when He pops the hood!

then start back at page 1....

and read the backstory... then follow my epic journey.

EDIT: yes it is the D25... SVT version of course.
