am i the only South African Member?

It almos seems as if I'm the only south African member on focusfanatics. None the less its a great site and the members have a wealth of knowledge to offer yet I duno if I will ever be able to put a mod on my car ,,, I have a 2008 MK2 Ford Focus 1.6 duratec (my model is actualy know as a BZ engine because it was a specific model designed for The south african Market.

Wikipedia says:
The engine line up for the Mk 2 is a mixture of old and new. Revised versions of the 1.4 L and 1.6 L all aluminium Zetec-SE engines from the previous generation Focus were carried over, although the units were now renamed Duratec, with the addition of 1.6 L Duratec Ti-VCT engine with variable valve timing. For the South African market, the 1.6L BZ inline-four engine was used in their Mk2. For the 2009 facelift it was replaced by the 1.8 Duratec.

Guys please help me out here I have no clue as where to look for mods ??

And if I were to look it would be relating to the eurospec 1.6 model duratec as its the same as the BZ model I have

Thanks in advance

Its Focus T!me,

Hi and welcome to the site.
Yes, you'll find a plethera (sp?) (like that word? - lol)
of information and suggestions here.

Curious, what is the price of gas (petrol? fuel?) there?
In Hamilton, Ontario, Canada we're paying around $ 1.22 and $ 1.27 per litre.

Enjoy the site.
