hi everybody ! this will be my first post to the forum , been a long follower but never got around to actually sing up , well that is no more the case

lit'o bit of history of the car ,it started as a Red Race 2013 Focus SE yes SE , i loved driving that 2.0 NA it was fairly quick for me being a young but not so nob car guy IMG_0145.JPG
i got around to get a wrecked black tuxedo ST2 IMG_1459.JPG

which i originally repaired and drove but not quite legally , it got messy when it came to title that car so i simply swapped everything into my red SE and voila ! Red Focus ST was born IMG_1926.JPG


i will post periodically , i have modified this car a little bit .but now EFR turbo and 2.3 stroker kit with assist of a 4 lobe exhaust camshaft conversion to power the HPFP ( i will post more on that too) it all should net a very fun to drive car with RS like performance on a lighter package

this is how the engine sits right now , tomorow it will be completed and installed in the car .i gosh wish i stuck with 2.0 ,my car would be running now on big turbo , but hopefully the added displacment and stronger pistons are worth it

Interesting build.
Did you keep the SE suspension, or swap to the ST's?

what kind of electrical problems ? mayybe i can help
Car will crank but it will not ignite. Ground wires connected, new coil packs, new spark plugs, wiring harness was not touched after the block was lifted out. New crank shaft sensor should be here in a few days. Betting on that might be the problem, since I used the old sensor. Everything has been checked/aligned properly. However the car sat for six months with out starting, also new battery. All fuses under the hood and under the glove compart. are green to go.
