you and I drive sister cars..

I have a 04 Black Zx3..

what i suggest is the following:
FordMoCo copper plugs/ FoMoCo plug wires
injectors-~48bucks a piece * they dont need to be upgraded unless you are planing on forced induction (just my $.02)
brake upgrade...i would use a SVT focus kit and different pads....its the best thing you could probably do (does require 16" or bigger wheels)

hope this helps and welcome..

you should check out the HATCH NATION...its a group on here..

Enjoy the car and the site!

Welcome to FF. Nice to see another New Englander. 2004, do you have a 2.0 Zetec or a 2.3 Duratec?

Thats easy, if it's a 2.3 L then its a duratec

So for all of your performance upgrades(engine wise) be sure to look for duratec stuff
