the speedway nose fits almost exactly, especially if the car is a 442 and you need some extra hight in the hood area, this of course will also require an increase in hight of the scuttle to keep the hood line reasonable, it is also not square.
the only bad point is the grill, as supplied, it is a rough casting and when i say rough, i mean rough to the point of having to file all the vertical bars and use a disc on the frame, the mounting holes are NOT drilled and will require threading also, i must assume that in the sprint car world they just sillicon it in place.
i considered the focus pan but it is designed for transverse installation and the baffling and pickup are all wrong, there are now some other people making pans from steel with, it is alledged, the right baffles for a north south config, as finances allow, i will persue this line as my motor sticks out the bottom about 11/2 inches.
i did not use the ranger intake because it mounts above the engineand would stick through the hood some 4 inches. To fit the focus manifold, which i purchased from blue spring ford over the net, cheaper than a used one from the wrecking yard, you must modify the coolant pipe behind the manifold, use a focus throttle body, but the stock ranger idle air control fits as does the throttle cable. beware, there are several manifolds and throttle bodies available, you need it to operate with a cable.
i also used the focus fuel rail, this is square section as opposed to round, it has the fuel inlet at the rear instead of at the front as in the ranger, there two distinct differences that must be dealt with, the ranger has what looks like a pressure regulator on the top, it is NOT! it is a pulse dampener this is not used on the focus as the fuel rail is larger in volume but has a flange with two screw holes to allow fitment of a fuel pressure sensor because the focus adjusts the pressure by speeding or slowing the pump in the tank, unlike the ranger which has a conventional regulator in the tank on the return line.( fuel is pumped from the intank pump to the fuel filter where some runs to the front to feed the fuel rail and the rest is returned to the tank via a pressure regulator set at 40p.s.i.
i used this system as it provides a single line to the front of the car, as to the flange on the fuel rail, i just braised a plug in the hole.
i see you stand like greyhounds in the slips straining upon the start, the games afoot, follow your spirit.
