throttle body box replacement

had to take my ride back to dealer yesterday,the drive by wire throttle box has burnt out, when id go over 3000rpm and start to fang it hard the engine would die.the on board computer was going hay wire after 3000 rpm it was reading way to much fuel and the emergency cut off had deployed.
i had to ask if the possible reason was because i drive my car hard they said no, the fpv is meant to be driven hard,its a faulty throttle box,
it will take the entire day to replace.
the guys at city ford are pretty kool, they loved the herrod mods...

Focus? AU3?

I get a much better and larger loan vehicle from Ford/FPV. It's called a City Rail train.

At least your loaner handles like it is on rails
