new plan for my focus.

ok...now that i know im going to keep it and get my mustang when im in a better financial state i have a plan in my head to have some fun with my focus.
Exterior:
ST170 front end swap.
F2 Rs or us spec. st SAP rear bumper.
F2 rs sideskirts
35% tint all around
17" Black 15 spoke svt rims
Not sure an what suspension setup yet...but i want to lower it at least and inch or more.
considering about going spoilerless, if it will make it look cleaner.
Might look into lambo doors or suicide doors later...(thought about an all 4 door gull wing setup...but it might look funny lol)

Interior:
mabey some recarro racing seats
lower the stock auto shifter.
guage cluter with tach (if i can find one) or aftermarket tach
Painting the interior peices white. (white and tan would look ok i think)
im thinking about other interior options atm

Performance:
Cosworth CAI, or Steeda SRI
Cosworth 2.5" cat-back exhaust (if i can find it) if not i might go with borla or magnaflow.
Xcal II tune.
Front and Rear swaybars (from who i dunno)
thinking of a header but i would like to stay as legal as possible.
might go turbo later but im still debating it.
New brakes (brembo's im thinking)
im sure there are other performance mod for me but i can't think of em off the bat because i dont have much knowledge of performance modding.

but ya, thats the set up in thinking about going for. i know it's useless without pics but i'll try my hand at photochopping it up. other than that what u guys think?...i think it would look awesome if everything lined up perfect and looked nice and clean.

i know i have asked as have many b4 me but, what is the best way to go for gains...i want at least 170-200whp. ( i was wanting to shoot for 260whp but i dont wanna go through hassles with rebuilding intrnals and things.)

If you want the best gains......turbo is the answer.
There are also plenty of N/A options, but they wont get you 200whp without making you spend a lot of money. Your plans for asthetic mods sound real good. I bet its going to look great. Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.

ya, thats what im afraid of...i wouldnt mind going turbo but droping 4 grand all at once is iffy for me.

i was also thinking about putting money back out of each check for the turbo...if my calculations are right i should have enough for the turbo in about 6 months or so...if i buy my exterior mods along with saving for the turbo.

^^ Haha Chris you sucker, still in school! I'm comin up this weekend for Carnival

Sorry to threadjack there, Chaos. Your plans sound preeetty impressive! I wonder though if all those exterior/interior mods might add up to close to $4k? If it were me, I'd say eff the body kits and get nothing but a turbo, some tuning, and suspension work. OR if I really had my heart set on a Mustang, I'd set the money away like you're thinking, only put a ton of it away instead of just a little at a time, suck it up with a Slocus for a while, then get your dream car! Just my $.02, but don't let me make light of your plans if you're really excited bout them. Good luck!!

Anyone else feel their zetec kicking in?
