Just to throw into the mix= How 'bout a 23 powered foci to start w/? '03-'04 hatch or a '05-'07 st sedan? How have know idea how many miles or condition of your car= something to think 'bout.
i want to do the 2.3l head swap, ive probably spent 3 hours last night trying to search for someone that has done this on the focus. theres just people saying theres no gain, theres no difference in heads. but no one has done it. im buying toms sct tuner next week, should be able to afford the rest of the bolt ons in the next few weeks.. i/e cai, header, already got the catback. then i want to get the 2.3 head and see what kind of gains ill get from that. Just dont want to waste my money to not see benefits.
132,000km on the engine and still feels strong.
