Well I have $500 to spend on the Focus. Its a SPI, and the only things done are
6-Spoke SVT Wheels
Halo Projection Head Lights
So here is my delima. Do I get a drop including shocks, struts, and springs and euro grilles OR do I get a CAI and Exhaust? Any opinions?

I say suspension parts. Make it ride like its on rails!
02-07-2008, 10:08 PM
can you do any of the work yourself?
02-07-2008, 10:27 PM
uhm if performance is your thing..... id say save the money and go for something like an SVT or zetec swap. dont wanna bash your car but that engine is not the greatest platform to be starting with.... if your not about speed then put it into suspension for sure.... 110hp can still be fun if it handles well

I want a bit more performance, nothing crazy yet. Honestly if I am going to swap a motor I mine as well just get a new car and save the hassel and possible problems. The CAI and Exhaust will be for a bit more power and sound purposes really.
Besides, the SPI has a $250 turbo kit, haven't you heard? (Saving parts for this). Eventually, I'll have most of the bolt ons for a SPI and a custom turbo setup, but for now since I live in Florida I get the speed I miss out on with a GSXR 650.
All the work will be done at no cost.

you wont even use that intake with the turbo kit.
02-08-2008, 10:35 AM
True but the turbo isnt going to be for some time.

I would have to say suspension too... You might have alot of power but you can make the thing fun to take corners...

best bang for the buck^^^

i say a nice suspension, and if its a stick maybe a sts? if you can locate one
02-08-2008, 03:22 PM
Suspension it is!
Eibach Pro setup on its way along with euro grilles. [woot]
02-08-2008, 07:09 PM
I say suspension. What good is a fast car if it handles like a pig.
02-09-2008, 04:49 PM
Hey, I forgot to even ask is 475 good for a eibach pro kit (springs, struts, etc whole setup)
02-10-2008, 01:03 AM
Yeah man, thats a good price. Good choice with the eibach pro kit.
I have it on my focus, and I love it. Perfect drop IMO, and handles extremely well.
Good choice with the euro grills also. I have both on mine, and they are hottness.

Cool I was thinking to myself I coulda saved some money since I didn't ask or really look around for a good price for the kit. Good to know it was a good price. I can't wait to feel the ride.
