well let's see here...

tomorrow I'm buying a built short block with 10.5:1 compression JE pistons, eagle rods, clevite 77 bearings, knife edged crank, balanced with new oil pump.
then, when I get the money saved up I'm gonna take my spare cyl head to a nearby race shop and have a high perf valve and port job done on it, plus new springs and milling it to get me to 11.5:1 compression
to top that off:
comp stg 2 or 3 cams
adjustable cam gears,
porting my stock intake mani (2000)
bigger injectors, prob 24 or 30#
mustang MAF
ORP for my SVT header/cat/flex combo
rework a tune on my XCal2 using a my wideband 02 for help

also coming:
NX nitrous kit (wet) with GenX2 accessories, plus some extras
KYB AGX dampers
more poly bushings
Falken Azenis to go on my auto-x wheels
drag radials to go on two stock wheels I have
NGK AFX wideband 02
Centerforce clutch (just sitting around, will upgrade to better later on)

and have been working on repairs, so far:
front lca's
finishing front wheel bearings
replacing thermostat housing
replacing batt neg cable
timing belt, tensioner, idler pulleys

I have SVT rear discs on the way from Focus-Salvage...that's pretty much it for the winter. Oh, and repairing a crack in my ST170 front bumper

Although I do have big plans for the spring...

Completing the Euro look (euro front fenders & triangle repeaters, ST170/'02 facelift rear bumper)
Completely repainting the car, courtesy of my girlfriend's dad (he restores salvage-title cars and has a full spray booth setup in his garage)
Performance wise, either a FR head milled to bump compression to 10.6:1 with Comp/Crane stage 2s and a tune at McNews, or if the price is reasonable the SuperSnail turbo kit. That should pretty much finish up my modding plans for my Focus aside from some KYB AGX struts and dampers when my SVT ones wear out.

maybe an exhaust... depending on how the job hunt goes

if it goes real well, maybe more than that

as for repairs, i'm prolly gonna put my stock intake back on, unless i can figure out why i lost so much low-end torque putting my cai on.

and oh yeah, putting on my stock wheels for winter

i am waiting for the car to be completed like halfly to open a thread for this because parts are everywhere and the shop which is doing this project for me is moving so its going very slowly... i want some of the stuff to be completed before opening the thread...
i know you all will want pics but i dont have any for now... thats another reason that i dont open a thread for this project...

anyway wish me luck and pray for me to earn more money for the project lol these are the 2 things that i will need most for the next 6 months
