  • Revert Back To Stock Coil Pack & Wires
  • Oil Cooler
  • ATX ECU
  • ATX Harness
  • ATX Mission Cooler
  • Battery Relocation

Exterior

  • RS Parts with Fender Rolling

Drivetrain

  • Lentech Street Terminator Plus with T2 Torsen Differential
  • Dominate Engineering Full Suspension Parts in Blue

I'd like to get the following done to the car:

    At the same time:

  • ---Install new engine parts, clean it, paint
  • ---Modify the SVT and/or ATX harness to work with SVT Engine and ATX ECU.

Once those tasks are done:

  • Fab up a new radiator support similar to Dom. Eng. So there is more space for the fans
  • Install wiring, battery relocation, gauges, interior
  • Install engine, Lentech ATX
  • Install Turbo Kit & Exhaust
  • Basic tune with rev limit at 3000 so I can get use to driving again.
  • Install mobility freedom controls.

Next at the same time

What? Are you serious? Please report those PM's to FF. FF needs to know about more of his bad habits, and then we can yell and scream at FF.

Well, I finally finished paying Jared and Bryan for the turbo kit and GTX3582R.

Also bought Turbosmart's eBoost 2 for boost by gear/rpm. Looking to buy a SCT Touchscreen Xtreme since I can't push buttons well......ok, because it looks cool too...lol

I don;t think 4drsvt is tom.. That guy is trying to buy my roush sideskirts right now and gave me a zipcode for shipping to Philly. Doesn't tom live somewhere by detriot or chicago? I could be wrong, but I don't think it's him.

I can't wait. But first I need to get my car turned into an automatic. Somehow take my SCT LL3 file, cut & paste values from it into the auto ECU tune with adjustments. Think Fernando can do this? Once done, my wife can drive to Mobility Freedom to get my controls put in.

I can't do anything myself anymore, so when I'm ready, I'm gonna need all the help I can get.

Right now Lentech is looking for a T2 to finish the mission. Bryan said Jared's is for sale but haven't heard from them in 2 days. Capaldi is checking their inventory for me.

I bought Jared's fuel system too. Basically transplanting...hahaha.

So Jim, you have a work shop/garage? I have a garage, but all my lifts, cherry picker, and tools are in Japan storage...FTL.

Alright, I've changed the 1st post to show what I want to have done. I really don't have a clue how long this will take. As you know already, I will need all the help I can get, and I appreciate your comments.

Come August, I'll be picking up my car in Illinois. I'll be at FocusFest showing off the car and accepting the donations from the fundraiser that is going on at the FF forums. Afterwards, the car will be down here in Florida no later than the 16th. By then, the major important stuff should have arrived.

I'd like to get the following done to the car:

  • Take out interior, wiring, engine & transmission
  • At the same time:
  • ---Get the RS parts put on, rolled, and painted
  • ---Install new engine parts, clean it, paint
  • ---Modify the SVT and/or ATX harness to work with SVT Engine and ATX ECU.

Once those tasks are done:

  • Fab up a new radiator support similar to Dom. Eng. So there is more space for the fans
  • Install wiring, battery relocation, gauges, interior
  • Install engine, Lentech ATX
  • Install Turbo Kit & Exhaust
  • Basic tune with rev limit at 3000 so I can get use to driving again.
  • Install mobility freedom controls.

Next at the same time

  • Suspension Everything
  • 5-Lugs
  • My Japanese Weds Sports 17x9s

Someone say pictires?

Here it is; not much to look at, but this is my ticket to motorsports driving again...not to mention the un-godly amount of hp in a Focus it needs to hold.

Lentech Automatics

4F27E Street Terminator PLUS Transmission
4F27E Strip Terminator Valve Body
9" Strip Terminator Aluminum Stator, Stage2 Lockup 16 Spline
Brake Stall @ 2800rpms
T2 Torsen ATB Differential

Holds 600+whp easy.
