    Why the Ford Focus RS Is Having Head Gasket Issues

    Many theories on the root cause have popped up but it may all come down to an incorrectly delivered gasket. Many Focus RS owners have posted pictures of their failed head gaskets and the design appears to match the gaskets found on the Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost. While the two engines share many components and specifications, the cooling passages in the RS are different from those found in the Mustang.

    A mile of road takes you a mile. A mile of runway takes you anywhere.

    One of the dumb lazy union workers probably pointed that out and the boss said run them anyway.

    I didn't know they were still using an open deck block. Geez.

    Ford is going to look at any mod as negating the warranty.

    I'm all the time hearing stories of management telling machine operators to send out of spec parts on to assembly or they dig the parts out of the scrap hopper themselves because they're more worried about making rate than building quality parts.
