Why a new oil cap. I have one or you can get a nice purple one from massive.

The mag covers are screw in and not the notch ones like the regular Zetec ones are that we're familiar with.

*taps mic* Is this thing on?

So, after almost a year of having her SRI intake on, Ruth finally got her filter all cleaned and re-oiled. A good amount of crud came out, and with the purchase of a K&N recharge kit, it is looking good as new! New tires are on the way momentarily...

Had to dig deep into the archives to find this one again. Almost tempted not to keep it updated.

Anywho, Ruth was plagued by the leaky side marker light. Has been happening off and on for awhile now, but this time was the last straw. Not only did water fry the bulb, but also the socket and connector. New parts are on the way for those. So, I sealed up the light with some general silicon caulk, and hopefully it won't bother me in the future. All of this work prepping for Focus Fest!

Finally some cool stuff going on. Slapped some SVT front seats (heated, too!) as well as an SVT steering wheel into Ruth yeaterday. Guy also had an SVT header...

Nah. Need the gasket, bolts, and sleeves. Essentially everything except the oil cap.

Can you use your old valve cover bolts/sleeves?
No. The bolts are about half an inch too long. I don't think the plastic valve cover came with sleeves either.

Plastic doesn't. What was wrong with the old rubber grommets? Or by gasket you mean the whole cover gasket?

I didn't get the grommets in the box. The whole gasket I need.

I never took them out, I don't think. Maybe the powder coater did.
What's different in the gasket?

Mag cover is a flat surface, no groove for the gasket to fall into.

Phew, talk about an oldie thread here. More than a few things have changed since I've last posted an update on here, so hopefully I remember them all!

- SVT EAP Recaro seats front and rear
- Sony touchscreen head unit
- Added another 10" Cerwin-Vega subwoofer (2 total, ported box)
- Replaced all 4 door speakers with 6x8 Cerwin-Vega 2 ways
- Focus Sport short ram intake with heat shield (basically just an FSWERKS Cool-Flo)
- Massive Speed System rear disc brake conversion
- brand new SVT shocks and struts with H&R Sport springs
- SVT rear sway bar with polyurethane bushings/end links
- SVT mirrors
- SVT front bumper with Mach 1 lip (currently getting painted)
- Euro upper grille
- Euro roof rack
- Custom retrofitted headlights from Jeff Bosse (SPIinDisguise here on the forum)
- Shorty exhaust header (heat wrapped)
- FSWERKS 93 octane custom tune via SCT X4

I'm currently in the process of gathering the bits/pieces to swap it over to a manual transmission. I have just about everything I need besides a few clutch related components, a starter, and wiring. Other than that I have everything else, including a transmission! I'm super excited to get on the project, and finally having some gears to row. Hopefully I can start on it late fall/early Winter (since I don't drive it at that time anymore) and get it all done before springtime. I don't think it would be a hard goal to reach, I just have to take my time to make sure everything is done right. I don't want to be chasing gremlins for years to come when right now the car has none. Who knows, we will see what happens!
