Project: RS Focus @ over 300 whp
Finally i decided not to sell my car (just bought a new wagon a month ago, of course focus..) but make it look like an RS in PantherBlack with a beast engine ;-)

1st step: wheels/tyres, brakes, absorters, springs (whole suspension)
2nd step: front fenders/front bumper/RS springs
3rd step: rear fenders/rear bumper/RS springs
4th step: engine and engine management.
5th step: interrior (leather sparco, car pc, etc)
6th step: four wheel drive

I made a lot of modifications on my car until now, full blue interrior lights, white gauges, etc..

Now I had to put my stock springs back because of the bigger wheels/tyres. Here are some pics without comments about the parts i already bought.
For the RS the stock parts are: Sachs race absorters/springs, Brembo 4 cylinder brake calippers, oz wheels, etc..

i also changed my headlights recently to the facelifted ones. now i changed them to hella lights.

More pix about my car

I will post frequently new pics ;-)

I also bought the RS knockle and ballbearing but the inner diameter for the RS is 40mm and the stock is 38mm. The rs HUB would fit, but the stock halfshaft is different so i make a new inner ring for the RS ballbearing (38mm). This will be ready for the next weekend, so i will put in the brake, absorter and wheels to the front on the weekend.

The Zetec Ford Mondeo's (1997-2000) gearbox is MTX75 as the Focus'. For the mondeo you can have the extention for the reardrive. You have to buy the center differential and the oilpan, mediate crank-case of the zetec mondeo and also the cardan-shaft.
The rear segment can be easly made from an RS or cosworth escort.

You can buy it at any Ford part store, i.e. any official Ford service. Or you can check at any brembo store referring to RS Focus.

If you want to have Finis codes I can give you a list, but these codes for EU Fords.
