True. This all do it yourself info peeps. And good luck finding someone that has the experience outside of this forum. You'll also need an engine stand and engine hoist. Various tools for the disassembling the suspension and engine too.

Can anyone confirm what needs to be done on a retunless car. I thought the Taurus FR was opposite (flipped) compared to the Tour. Can't use the Contour FR because of the bolt pattern on the LIM.




Escape fuel rail should do the trick
