    don't think the head gasket will be the end of the rs problems.



    it's a completely open deck motor running serious power and stress and leaves it's self open to block problems , even the problematic ej25 has better cylinder support compared to the focus block. I'd be willing to bet that this is a panic fix from ford , probably would have been better off ignoring the problem like Subaru did
