ford focus svt timing belt
PLEASE NOTE! I filmed this with my ipod nano and i had it upside down so it
mirrored everything for some reason. It's really weird...so everything is
opposite of where it should be in the video. For example, in the video it
appears that my coil pack and spark plug wires are on the left but they are
on the right in real life, so just try and picture your motor. Never gonna
film upside down again lol...
Also, after putting it all back together and driving, It lacked power and I
quickly got a CEL/code for cam timing over retarded or over advanced. I
thought I had done something wrong but I decided to try one more thing
before tearing into it again. I replaced the VCT solenoid which is the
little cylinder/tower on the side near the cam gears. It controls when the
cam timing advances in high rpms with oil pressure. Anyways, I replaced it
and bam, no more check engine light and power was back. The intake runners
(IMRC) were switching over at high rpm's every time again. Sounds awesome.
So I did do everything right and it turns out it was the vct solenoid the
whole time. A friend and I were curious as to why the old one was not
working and after removing it we connected it to a 12v battery with wire
leads going to the 2 metal tabs on the vct solenoid's connector to give it
power and it was not moving very much. Something inside it moves but it was
sticking/seizing. It lasted over 100,000 miles though so I wasn't mad at it
lol. I might have been able to save it by leaving it in brake/carb/parts
cleaner overnight to free it up but I just bought a new one for about $80.

NSX VS COP police vs chase
**Note, this was a police escorted event, we were supposed to drive fast as
the flow of police motorcycles and cars need to move fast, all I did was
chasing the cop (that was hired among 15 others for this event) for some
seconds, is all fun, cops LOVE THIS anyways.
Have you wonder what happens when a cop and you are flooring in the same
road?? I couldn't help to try a bit :D ... sadly I had to let go but that
was some fun few seconds of glory lol!
This was recorded in Mexico.
car is a 97 NSX (3.2)
