Focus engine isn't in yet. Need to put windage tray and below on, ARP head studs come Tuesday so assembly can finally begin. I leave the 6th tho to Indianapolis for work and won't be back till September 10th.


Muffler is mostly hidden with the WW lip, I didnt want a big single tip/canister style back there. If it comes down to it, once the lip kit is on, I might paint the muffler body black to make it hide so just the tips stand out. I mocked up the lip when I welded the mounts on so its a bit low/to the left without it. Vid from the day I blew my Craigslist replacement ZX2 engine I got for $250 with a 98 transmission.

You could have gone for those flat black Vibrant mufflers.

Looks really nice though!

I miss my zx2. I had a lot of authentic s/r parts on my car. It set that car up so well!

This defiantly looks like its going to be monstrous!

I have a friend that has a Turbo'd ZX2 and it gives me a little woody when he hits boost [:)~]

SVT Focus intake manifold is on finally. I also pulled apart the ZX2 harness, swapped fuel pressure regulator, spliced FPS and TB pigtails then rotated injectors and 'tucked' the harness under the manifold, as well as put the thermostat housing and coil pack bracket on.

This is how it will sit till I get back in town in mid September. Aluminum valve cover, cam gears, and a catch can are at Liquid Powder Coats for powdercoating.

is your oil filter big enough?
Thought about putting a relocation kit on with one for a diesel...

Its the size the books call for the ZX2. I'll be getting a Bosch after first startup/AutoZone oil cleaning any light debris from motor.

Only thing that has me concerned is I didn't spec the cam journals.
