Very nice! Have you thought about dropping in the manual trans, or is the auto perky enough?

How about a performance suspension? Lots of cool things that can be doen with a Focus. There is a web site devoted to them.

When I was lookin at Zx2's when i totalled mine that was a 5spd i drove an auto and it wasnt as peppy, and the focus and ZX2 used same motor and trans. things could have changed, how do they run nowa dayz? you got a later model and they no longer make the Z's

The auto does alright. ive never owned a stick car, so this is what im comfortable with. i do know there is a definate loss with the auto though
they run really good. ive got 17k on it thus far and havent a compalint

new coils and dampers are on the to do list

and i float aorund on a few of the boards, thats where i got all my bad ideas from in the first place

theres actually been a few v8 swaps done, could be fun :D

I need to get a small car for my daughter and I never thought of the Focus. Yours looks very nice. I have to see what I can find.
BTW, those are some brave pictures you took in the middle of the road like that. Must not be a busy place.;)

i was up at stag hill road in mahwah, not to much trafic.
i never thought i would own a focus. i used to make fun of em actually, but now that i have one i must humble myself and admidt that its honestly a great little car. i miss the room of my 05X but if i had to do it agoian id definately make the same trade.

hey if you got anyquestions in lookin for one for your daugher hit me up via pm, id be glad to help ya if i can

honesly i got the other 2 pics and the one of the front blured on another forum. i dont mind my plate being up on this board, i trust you guys. its the other sites (ie myspace) i post at that i worry about

2.25 inch exhaust with a 2 liter? WTF?

hey, could be worse, they make em up to 3". :D
2.25 is actually the smalest ive seen for the duratechs. most guys go with 2.5 but since i have no plans for a tune i kept on the conservative side.
it really does sound badass though.

well once i thought about it, it's really not that huge. there's just something about there being more inches of exhaust than liters of displacement that annoys me sometimes, for example 1.8 liter civic, 3 inch catback system?

trua, i cant really argue with that logic though
as far as the civic thing is concerned though arent they the exception to every rule concerning performance?
