  1. precission turbo clearance

    Focus RS Discussions
    mine with the stock WG touches the firewall insulation ever so slightly. unfortunately swapping the wg with it installed is seemingly impossible. wish I upgraded before install.
  2. forged long block for focus rs

    Focus RS Discussions
    if I were getting a built motor for myself today I would go with Speed Perf6manc3 in New Jersey. They have been building speed 3 motors since the platform was released and have recently started pushing the limits of the 2.3 ecoboost to find failures and create solutions. Mountune is way...
  3. The Best Waterless Carwashes

    Focus RS Detailing
    No ONR and no Ultima Waterless Wash means this list is not a true comparison of the best.
  4. Headgasket deadline approaching

    Focus RS Maintenance
    still on OG gasket without issue, but I feel like I need it done for potential resale purposes if anything else. good news is maybe i will get a new cyl head out of it.
  5. White Stuff All Over Engine Bay

    Focus RS Discussions
    Triggered?!! 1st post too, I am beyond honored sir! and no, the power washer stays in the garage, next to the car, just in case I need to spray the engine last minute before I go out for nachos at the strippy. the hens dig a clean engine fwiw, using a power washer is grownup stuff and should...
  6. Purchasing so far has been a nightmare

    Focus RS Purchasing
    Ford dealers can NOT sell a car without doing the head gasket recall. perhaps the salesperson was clueless. as for the price, it seems about right. how much lower do you expect to pay for a car that is no longer being built and in demand? the weather seals are garbage and show stains like a...
  7. Will it Fit: 18x8 ET 53?

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    yes they will fit but will look slightly tucked compared to stock. you can always get a 10mm spacer which would bump the offset to +43 making it just about perfect for a 235 or 245 if you dont mind a slightly pinched tire
  8. Found on Utube: Owner seized their motor

    Focus RS Discussions
    riding the rev limiter with no load on the engine is never a good idea.
  9. Otto Model in Stealth Grey

    Focus RS Purchasing
    how much is shipping generally to get one of these to the states?
  10. Optimal wheel + tire combination for track + autocross

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    usually people choose a wheel/tire combo for autox based on what class they want to run in. if classing aint a thing, wider will always be better on our heavy cars, there is no way to overtire this pig without massive flares. the 18x9.5's on my car are 19.2lbs so you dont have to compromise...
  11. What would it take to fit a 19x9.5 wheel?

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    I am stock height with 265's on 9.5's no issues with rubbing, but I did go to an upgraded bumpstop on the stock shock which may or may not help. +38 to +40 is where you want to be
  12. 265/35/18 on 18x9?

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    people are autocrossing with 275’s on an 8” wheel. 265’s on 9’s will be just shy of square... you will be fine.

    North Eastern RS Owners
    glad to hear a few good tasca stories. now i just need to motivate to return to stock. never a fun process, but maybe I can get an inspection done at the same time and be good for the next 2 years.

    did they find coolant in a cylinder after the pressure test?

    I bet I would pass 75 ford dealers between my house and ayer, there has to be something slightly closer, but tbh, its crossed my mind to ship my damn car to jessica in Dearborn, so I guess in that respect, ayer aint too bad. what I hate most about this stupid FSA is my car runs perfect, and Im...

    North Eastern RS Owners
    not liking the stories about Tasca. I figured I would go there myself eventually since they are big and figured they would have their **** together. Guess not, so maybe I need a plan B. Has anyone had a good FSA experience with a dealer in RI or south of boston?

    check the ground strap on the back of the head troubleshooting anything electrical is often above the common tech's wheelhouse

    glad my car is laid up while everyone else works out the bugs at tasca. figure Ill bring my car in there in 2+ months when the salt is off the road and they have their **** together. at bare minimum it seems like they will have plenty of practice on RS before they get to mine. :untroubled:
  19. Dealer wants my car!

    Focus RS Discussions
    if you think a car salesman is making you a deal too good to pass up, you are crazy. this deal will make them money, your money.
