Some news about Focus-Power

Focus-Power is not a full time buisness for me or my main buisness I own a Crane buisness an Automotive Machine shop an Industrial Machine shop , Dyno/Tuning Buisness
I now have the Ind. Machine and Crane buisness for sale with a sale pending on one of them and i am going to start slowing down a little. My goal in life was to retire at 45 and i turn that in June of this year

The Focus has been a big part of my life for 6 years now the longest by far I have ever stuck with any projects and by far the most fun i have had with any car i have done to date and there has been a lot of them. I have drag raced , street , and road raced the Focus and have been #1 in every one and event i have gone to. Over time i was thinking Ford would step up and give some help but they thought money was better spent giving Foci to people that talked the talk and crawled the walk

Some look at what i do and say as being arrogant and i look at it as im the one out there doing it and have been unchallanged for 6 years so to me its confidance

Focus-Power will no longer be making any type of Turbo kit for the Focus and will be droping all R&D. We will keep doing the Long and Short blocks for the Zetec and Dura engine and ONLY the strokers kits for the Zetec as well as ported heads for both. We will keep the Billet Mains and the VCT Elim

Focus-Power will keep the dyno and the tuning alive and are working with some new stuff that we will be able to talk about more soon

I have the SVT and both the Road Race white Focus for sale and the ATX white Focus for sale and will list all 3 soon

I have made some very good freindships and met some wonderfull people I am going to stay on the Forum for some time and help all i can to those that want it

As some know my Wife has had 7 Back Surgerys and has a spinal cord stimulator in her back and i work 12 to 14 Hr days and its time for me to slow down we want to travel and start enjoying life , I just bought me a 2006 Screaming Eagle Fatboy and took a night off and got out of here at 4 and had a blast with some of my old riding buddies , will be gone to Myrtle Beach next week for Bike Week

I know to some it isnt good news and to some they could care less but i have made the decision and needed to share it so some could make other plans

I think 10.95 ,735HP, 400+ on 87 Oct, Is a good way to go out

Thanks
Tom

If you've got the ability to retire at 45, I say go for it.

Definitely Tom, I appreciate the help on my head rebuild. As Said by JLEMOND I may have never been a customer or havent been one yet. We will all miss your information and your Dyno sheets of ur Foci. I am still interested in the VCT Elim, so who knows maybe i will become a cust., If u are still selling them. Thanks for everything. Enjoy ur lifelong vacation!!!

yeah what frush said.

hopefully this will help get the ball going on people to start building their own turbo kits to try and out do the high power levels you've been able to get.

have fun on the bike. going on cruises with those are always a good time.

I'm happy for you, but upset that I didnt get to get my stroker block before you quit making them. Congratulations, I'd love to be able to retire. And I wish the best for your wife. Enjoy life.
