Street Tuner challenge

I was watching Speed Channel this weekend and happened to see an episode of "Street Tuner Challenge". One of the three cars being prepped for the challenge was an '08 Focus SES coupe in Black. They mainly were tearing down the engine to beef it up for a turbo, but I'm curious as to what they will do to the styling of the car, so I will definitely watch next week to see what happens.

I did notice one mistake they made when profiling the "stock" Focus. They quoted the horsepower and torque from the '07 model, not the '08, which is very slightly higher.

It depends if the car has the Duratec 20 or 20E since the 20 is slightly more powerful.

About 3, Speed only spends about 5-6 minutes on each project and fills the rest with car shows and bad acting models. Speed rules though.
