I have done all the bolt-ons..
even swapped out the 2.0L for a 2.3L and yes, N/A is loud.. not a sleeper
No CAT, with Header is LOUD... no cat = MAYBE 3 to 5 HP??

You want a sleeper in a Focus, you need NOS....

You want a Champ, go toe to toe with other cars.. turbo..

you want to Dump money into a car with a N/A setup.. and get near 200whp?? Plan loud, and $$$ and Start stripping out the cars weight...

At that point, its no longer a Daily Driver... Infact... my Plate has a Surround around it... it says... " I know, I know Licence and Registration"

I get more tickets for getting Police attention for the noise then I do in my Mustang GT going twice as fast...

CAMs would be another what? $500 to $1500 for what... 5 to 20 HP and STILL hardly 200... not worth it.. Just got turbo from the get go or NOS her up...
