to further clarify, we have two duratec engine options that the focus came with.

a 2.0L and 2.3L, we call them d20 and d23 The d20 is far more common as the d23 only came in certain models in 03 and 04 and then only the ST sedan from 2005-2007

Yeah, I know Stephen. I'm just not use to seeing them w/ D2, D3. I spell them 20's or 23's or D20 or D23. No issues thou. How are you doing? Any new mods?

well I personally am about to be in the market for putting a few thou. in my car. I'm looking at a long tube header (weapon-R) ( item #953-117-103) and a weapon-r intake manifold (can also be found on their web) I'm very very curious to know IF anyone has used them?

Ive not heard of anyone using either (for an 03-07.) I believe the weapon-r intake manifold only works on 08-11 focus due to drive by wire. If you want an intake manifold, that leaves you two choices; Cosworth and there is a generic clone of that one also sold.

As for headers, FSwerks and OBX are used the most often.

And is there any other parts im gonna have to buy in order to make thhis all work? i just bought a d20 sedan and really want to make it into something i can be proud of

Usually the tune is added when you add the header. This is usually because after market headers do not have a provision for EGR and it also eliminates one (or two if you had three to start) O2 sensors. Also, once you are into the header after adding a CAI/Exhaust, it makes sense to have the tune as your stock ECU could struggle to provide the right amount of fuel/air with the increase in breathing of your motor. However, you can add a tune at any stage, just need to update tune after each mod to make the most of them.

Tuning is easy to install, just plug in SCT xcal into ODB2 port and it flashes the tune to your ecu. It also is a good idea to tune for 91 or 93 octane, will make the most of power/drive-ability. I dont suggest, imo it just hinders drive-ability and not worth the extra money. The two biggest tuners are Focus Power (sponsor on this site) and FSWerks, reach out to either, they will both be eager to help.
