Well i basically killed my engine.
Here are some pics.







So heres what happened. I made a real stupid mistake that f'ed everyrhing up bad. I left a rachet on the crank pully and went to start the engine. The engine stated and a second later i heard shatering metal
.The rachet unthreaded the crank pully bolt and we all know bad things happen when that bolt comes out. You can see the damage in the pictures, the intake valves in #1 are also bent
. My plans are now to get a used engine and swap that in. Then im going to use my current block to do a nice NA build up.

Let me know if you need an engine or component parts(crankshaft, head, another block, etc.) for your build. I still have incomplete Duratec Ranger 2.3 engines for $700. plus a minimal delivery charge from Detroit. No trade-in or core charge.

Sorry, no Focus-specific Duratecs but I still have new crate Zetec engines for $1000.

Wow that looks painful...

Must've been a terrible sound when you realized what happened.

Sorry, and best of luck with your new plans for it now.

Eagle should be releasing 2.3 rods shortly. Get a marcy head package and some pistons.
