Post A poll without a poll??? ADVICE PLEASE!

Ok...so Im thinking about painting my car. AKA fixing all the stuff thats wrong and painting the roof black. BUT there are a couple of items for sale right now that I really want. Would you repaint your car or buy cams,cam gears, and install?

I dont want my car to look ghetto but at the same time Ive been wanting some stg2 cams forever and I crave hp haha...because as we all know I live my life a quater mile at a time

Just tune the NOS timer and lengthen the injector pulse 1milisecond and you'll run 9's ...

I added your poll and moved you to Ford Focus General Chat.

Let me know if you like it that way. The poll I mean.

That would be way too much work...I think Ill just buy some stickers and chrome stick on pieces from autozone for my car and that alone should easily put me over the 1000whp mark.


The paint is chipping on the front bumper, side skirts, and the rear bumper a girl hit me and there is a chunk of paint missing and its spider cracking. Other than that the paints great hahaha. But seriously Im probably just going to get cams anyways IVE ALWAYS wanted cams and I have a chance to get them cheap...but I still have a lot of thinking to do...need more replies...must decide soon.

Go with the cams. Just tell everyone you had everything painted but your car is so fast that your paint is peeling.
