that's pretty cool! could you post more pics of the engine cover up close. I always wondered why Steeda or Fswerks didn't over one for the new focus like they did the previous duratec.
The car definitely feels stronger now. I don't know what the actual figures are but it's a noticeable difference. Once the tune's on it should be even better.

And speaking of, I see I forgot to answer that one! The tune is Rebel Devil's.

I can get some more photos of it - I don't actually have many.

More close-ups of that cover would be sweet, so I can draw it out and get something made for myself ;)

The car has now received a new tune!



I picked up a tuner from Rebel Devil and had a custom tune put together for 91 octane. Combined with the header the car is definitely stronger as compared to before and so far my fuel mileage is the same or possibly even better! I don't have too many kilometers behind the wheel with the new tune yet but I've taken a couple of friends for rides and they're impressed with it too.

Update on the tune - HOLY did it ever improve the car. My fuel economy has actually improved too following the install of the header and the remap. I used to average 8.5L/100km in the winter (7.5 in the summer) and currently am holding around 7.9. Very impressed with that!

The car hasn't really changed much lately though plans are coming together and parts are being ordered in preparation for the first show of the season, which is coming up. The announcement of Gymkhana 8 was motivation to play with some reflective vinyl I had though, and this was the result.




I need to redo a lot of the decals in preparation for the show as well so I'm also throwing around some ideas.

Up to this point the sedan's brakes had remained completely stock. Today they were upgraded a little bit...



...or rather, a lot. V-MAXX BBK, first in Canada.

I have some more photos of the BBK for those interested. I've been getting a lot of questions about the kit and I really can't complain about it at all. The performance is extraordinary and the install was straight-forward.



The new rotors measure in at 330mm which is a fair upgrade over the stock non-ST size.





The switch to this BBK does limit wheel options, though not in a way that matters to me. Due to the size of the rotors and calipers, 16" wheels will no longer clear. Seeing as how I run 18s all year long though (and personally don't like 16s on these cars as I feel they're just a bit too tiny) it's not an issue for me.



This last photo was taken right after the install so the car was still on the Tarmacs, but since then I have switched back to the summer wheels - the Turbomacs. Due to the more aggressive pads, the amount of brake dust has substantially increased so I'll need to clean my wheels more often. I'll live with it for now but I am considering lower-dust pads; we'll see how it goes for now.

My full story on the brakes can be found here: (Two parts)
