Bought this poor beaten to heck 6 last July. Starter was fried, and after replacement understand why. Intake was full of oil, intake boot between maf and tbody was torn and wrapped with duct tape. Once she started, missed and smoked like heck. Compression test showed front bank 160 average, rear 50, 120, n 0. Picked up an 06 fusion 3.0 local with 40k for 400 bucks and swapped her into my car. New clutch kit, swapped oil pan and pickup, dipstick and tube, new front seal into old timing cover. I wanted to use the newer coils 40k versus 126 so used the Ford valve covers. They matched the timing covers but had to extend the wiring for the coil packs. Front precat is intact as is it's downstream. Rear precat was empty, catalyst plugging the downstream and figure remainder wiped out the rings on the bank closest to the firewall. I like anti-foulers.
