Exclamation questions questions questions

Hello all on the focus fanatics forum!

I am not sure where to post this so here goes,

My name is Josh.

I have been dreaming of owning a focus for a while!!!

I finally own a vehicle (not quit a focus :D) but I am selling it in order to get a focus... So I sort of have this budget since I am not rich.

I pretty much have no idea about cars...

stick is a must, but basically heres a jist of what I want to do.

must
-turbokit (w/ installation correct components)
-exhaust
-cold air intake
-any other components relating to these?

looks
-tires,rims
-tinted windows
-stereo system..

and I was wondering if you could help me out being that this is the focus fanatics forum :D

about what am I looking at realistically in regards to spending cash?

I have no idea how much all of this is going to cost..

and my biggest thing is, is there any special focus to get like zx3 with specs and what not??? thanks

and is there any stereo specialists because I thought 600 would get me a sufficient system loud enough and good quality apparently im wrong lol...


anyways thanks everyone for your time!!!!

happy driving :D

Sup Josh, and welcome to FF!!

As for the mods you want I'd say your looking at a 5 to 10k range depending on your taste.

As for a car I saw a pretty sweet one awhile back on here for 3k and some around 7k again depends what you want. BUT if you want special......
SVT BABY!!

Hey for audio talk to Squillyb, think he out of town right now but he does ICE goood

focussport.com or try going all motor(like me) and check out cosworth.com steeda.com nopi.com the doors open to whatever you want to do just remember you get what you pay for and take this advice by good quality stuff the first time so you dont have to replace it in the future G/L with all your car dreams

Welcome aboard!

Hope you get your focus soon!

Make sure you look at more than one. Ford really bean counted with these cars. Some you can tell just feel like they just arent as good of quality as others. Honestly, even something minute as door weight.

When looking for my second focus, one i test drove had everything i wanted but it just seemed the doors were flimsy and such. Just general build quality is not the same on everyone.

I notice that U live in southern california, and that's a good thing I caught U. If ur planing on buying a focus 05+ equipped with the 2.0 liter engine, then getting an intake kit would be hard to get because SOME intake kits are not CARB certified for california's air.

Just a head's up there and

well, with a turbo kit you don't need a seperate cai. Turbo's not as easy as you might think it is...
