Dutch 188bhp Focus ST (SVT)

Hi there.

I'm new here, i'm from Holland so please excuse bad bad english

Last year in July i bought my ford focus st170 (svt) and been modding it to my likings since.

I will try to put the whole story here so here goes

Here it is when i had just picked it up from the previous owner:

I Always hated these kind of wheels so had to go.
Put some other wheels i had from my old focus wich was a temporary solution:

Changed the rear whiper for an peugeot 206 one:

Changend the licenceplate lights or some LED's:

The engine bay with an K&N 57i induction kit:

Bought some Focus RS1 wheels and powdercoated them white.
I was Always a fan of white wheels. especialy on a blue car:

Fitted an rs pack spoiler after i had it painted:

Had some gel badges custom made for the centercaps of the wheels:

Now it's time for some extra horses:

Off to a dyno meet with a few dutch focusclub members:

On the dyno:

Rear wheel bearings were screwed so replaced them along with the hubs:

Then some clutch problems begins. first i thought the main cilinder was broken so replaced it with a new one:

Unfortunetly that was'nt the problem so m and my mate towed it to my mates house:

We disconected the transmission and the problem was pretty Obvious:

So i ordered a new clutch kit including flywheel in the U.S.
We also saw that the thermostat housing was leaking so replaced that with a new one:

Now i had the time to give my wheels a good clean:

New clutch:

Result: Focus running perfectly again
Whit the 18 inch rs wheels the ST could do with some lowering so i replaced the Original suspension with an (used) KW variant1 adjustible coilover set:

Time to take some pictures:

All was good, time to do some detailing:

Not me btw

Some pictures of the result:
