I would think the Focus would have trouble transferring that kind of power to the road (without just doing burnouts)

Anyway, thanks for the advice. a suspension upgrade sounds like a good idea. The car already handles great. With those upgrades it would be ridiculous! Where do you suggest I find a reasonably priced SVT header/install?

P.S. I'd be totally content with adding 20 hp and I nice deep exhaust note for the right price.
Haha yeah, 4wd definitely has the jump on fwd off the line, but a fswerk's turbo'd focus is no joke, once they get traction, they haul @$$.

Anyhow, from what it sounds like, your best bet is:

1. suspension
2. cold air intake
3. cat-back exhaust

those 3 mods will be a pretty solid upgrade for your car. In the twisties, you will give alot of cars a run for their money.
