well as far as the svt goes. if you want to drag race then i dont suggest it. as far as autocross, eibach springs and crossdrilled rotors will be a good upgrade for handleing. do an exhaust, ORP/highflow cat, intake and better lower torque mount. add a tune from tom and i believe you would be most impressed with the results. the tranny is not the greatest for drag with such long ratio's, but on a autocross cross can run it mostly in 2nd. around 30mph to 70mph in 2nd.
springs 200
rotors and pads 250
mbrp exhaust 299
ORP 240
intake 200
tune from tom 395
lower torque mount inserts 20
the exspression someone gives off when they realize a focus just kicked there @$$, priceless
