I love the Ingalls mount, way underrated product.

If they made it for the Duratec, they would have some good market share.

Also, please tell me you didn't spend all that money on paint and leave the rub strips and door handles plastic. lol

I've been waiting Patiently for years for this to happen and for the people who know me or seen my threads will understand why it's taken me so long to finish this.
I'm waiting on the proformance shop to say you can bring your Focus down, I'm hoping next week.

Wow, huge capacity, but that's low. Are you planning to install any under-engine shield or guard? It looks like it will be very vulnerable if you don't.

Nice looking build, it's really taking shape now.

Back a few posts ago, Steve was asking about the car in one of the engine pix with the Hoosier tires on the rear... I'm curious to know what it is, too?

I think you might have a draining issue on that shelf section. The stock oil pan have that slight downward slank on the shelf section leading to the main pan area. It looks like the new one just blocks that whole section off? I would be concerned of oil not being able to drain for the windage tray properly and pooling up...maybe??

Also, with the new one being straight edged, and the oil pan & windage tray being curvy, will it still seal properly??

Just two thoughts.

No there won't be any shield or guard.
The car in the background is a old holden commodore, got no idea on spec.

It's all been designed from my engine builder and this is how you do a return oil feed from the turbo.
Wait until you see my MAF setup, it's something different yet again,
