First and foremost-Timing belt
2nd-Possibly this K&n Panel Filter instead of cold air intake? (must research more)
3rd-Yes about struts, should I get a C-pillar or rear strut bar (couple of names I've found)

Thanks again!
This is the best free mod you can do - “How To”-Getrag Shift Linkage-Counterweight Removal

CFM seems to be the best all stop shop for SVT upgrades.

If you plan on doing the timing belt yourself buy the Massive Speed timing tool kit.

For the timing belt components you want to buy OEM. You can contact a guy named Steve who works for Tousley Ford and he is active on the focus forums.
