Welcome to focus Fanatics.. Good looking car. Yes your best bet is a good intake and exhaust. You will get better gas milage and better performance. I would call it best bang for your buck.
There are alot of good people where always willing to help out. I hope you enjoy your new Focus and have fun with you new mobs.

Welcome!

I agree, intake/exhaust is a good start, but I have this funny feeling once the old Mod Bug bites, it won't stop at those two things... For instance, drop, tint rims, coil pack, wires, and the list goes on.

BTW, I'm really liking that color, I can honestly say Yours is the first I've seen in that particular shade.

And feel free to ask any questions You may have, there are lots of very helpful people on Here.

Parts: 05-07

As for the short throw, go Steeda.

Volant(or K&N) for the filter

MBRP, Borla or equivalent for the exhaust.

All above are either in use on My car or recommended by others.

Just keep in mind, try to avoid Ebay, as You get exactly what You pay for. Look through the "Vendor" list on Here, in the Buy-Sell-Trade section...

to FF!

Nice Focus! You should tint the windows.

Check out the Hilbish Ford section of this forum.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/f...splay.php?f=94

You can get Ford OEM parts at Ford employee pricing from Mike. They are also a Steeda dealer so they can get you Steeda parts at discount prices.
