If you pop off the throttle body, you'll notice where it's partially shrouded. You line the outside of the throttle body where the shroud is with JB Weld or some other similar epoxy. Then you grind away that shroud. The JB Weld fills in the hole that you'd otherwise have by grinding that shroud away. I also took the time to (mostly) fill the idle air control hole, which got rid of the stupid throttle hang that the Zetec otherwise has. Don't completely fill it, because that's how your engine breathes at idle.
Do some searching around and you'll find plenty of posts about it. Buy a spare throttle body to do this on - that way you're not hosed if you screw it up. They're stupid cheap to pick up.

So I swapped my motor, trans, ecu, PCM, and ENTIRE wire harness into a 2000 ford focus. My other one was 2007(had front end damage).
EVERY wire is hooked up correctly to my knowledge.
I checked every visible ground
Battery terminals are nice and clean
I removed terminals to reset the computer...
Hey all, I made this quick video to show how to remove the whole air intake assembly – needed for many other jobs that require access to the rear of the engine bay. Check it out here and hope it helps:
It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here, but I can really use some help. I’m looking for a good shop to drop in my built zetec. I also wanted to add a turbo. I started this project years ago but I had to stop for a while. Now I have the time and money to finish it. But of course now I...
