it truly is a sad state of affairs for us SPI drivers, while the engine is very torquey, ford has already wrung out most of the power from this ancient little engine. unless you go FI or engine swap, there will be no way to get power from your car. My focus is my first car, and i intend to modify it strictly for auto-x and you can bet that my first big step will be to put a zetec or svt engine in its bay, cause this spi will never get me anywhere. I would put your money into suspension, if you have the right model 300-400 into your suspension would give your ride dramatically better handling
