New Focus

High All

My name is Wes and i have just recently purchased a 2009 Focus SES Sport

Right know im looking to just get to know the car really well and some time soon i would love to inprove its performance

As of right know all i know is that i have just a plain 2.0L 4 cylinder

Im trying to convince my father that there are performance upgrades for the motor that will not hurt it and possibly give me better fuel economy

Any help or suggestions would be great

a cold air intake could help with mpg maybe, a custom turbo kit would help too

Thanks for the Ideas

Does anyone know what type of engine it is???
I know its a 2.0L but is there anything special about it and would it be able to hold up to aftermarket parts such as a CAI and an Exhaust System

welcome bro!

Cold air intake and exshaust will help MPG's and will sound good plus the duratech seems to do very well with these simple bolt on mods.

good luck and enjoy the new car.

hmm ok well hopefully this should convince my dad that an aftermarket exhaust and CAI will not harm the engine

He has it stuck in his head that thoes too mods will harm the engine cause of the added power increases

duratech has been around alot longer than 06....try websites like steeda.com, focussport.com, focus.c-f-m.com, f2focus.com. Just look for parts specific to a duratec 2.0L
