The SVT suspension kit you can get from Tousley Ford talk to Steve... he is on another Focus forum but they have an online store also.

Go with Tom for the transmission.

I don't know I would do anything on the header if you can't/won't do the SVT header. I don't think any of the Shorty ones actually give you any gain

Do a CAT back exhaust TruBendz makes good kits for the focus. Get 2.5 or larger. Go on YouTube and search for zetec focus exhaust clips... I think Borla sounds the best but also is a little more....

Check out C-F-M for other bolt on's that you may want.
I'd love to do the SVT headers, but I'll have to call the hippie-land DMV to check on the legality first. I'd have to use an SVT exhaust kit if I do purchase the SVT header and CAT right?

Tousley ford sells the SVT kit for like $200 still right? I seem to remember them being the cheapest I found.

Tom is the MTX75 legend right? Or is that another guy? I've seen a LOT of threads talking about some guy who could make an MTX75 take an SVT Getrag 6-speed to school in real world driving. 90MPH+ I don't care about --I like driving fast, but that kind of on public roads gets people killed/arrested.

Is the Iceman better than the K&N Gen 2? I'm not buying a scoop hood --I don't like to advertise that my car is worth stealing.
