Hello - New ZX408 Owner

Hello..Reg to find out a lil more info here on my project I acquirred that alot of you have seen and was a members on here..

To be Honest I have never owned a Focus till this one but have built many/many Fords'FoxBodys over the years..Nitrous Cars n Kit cars and My own Homebuilt TT Set up..

I currently still have 3 get down cars and 6 Daily Foxes I dont drive anymore but each my children have there own fox already in case something happens to dad..What ever car I had at the time of there birthis the one thats theres.

No not got alot of money but had 2 jobs for 7 yrs strait and had a plan to pay all off..home n land and now wife works and my body is tired n resting some tinkering with my own etc..

I have acquirred a 2000 Ford Focus zx3 that I did some research on and found some info..

I bought it semi running/no brakes/interior missing/seat belts gone/tranny leaking n stalling up too high/overheating after i got it running after 15 min drive time..

has a lightnening 408 from a fella on here..

hopin yall can post more info on car like the size oz rims and what bs they are if possible..

It now has a built 35 spline strange/spool converted to 5 lug that im not likeing but gonna change back to 4 lug so i can run the rear oz's..

Redid some of the fuel system and got all 4 disc brakes working good and tansmission totally rebuilt..

anyways this turned into a story and dont wanna bore yall but Howdy..

Hi Tom..I got to talk to you 1 time lol and tried a few other times but couldn't get ahold of you

Yes this is your old car..

I sent pics as I said awhile back but never heard back

What size carb did you have on it at first as I have a New Mighty Demen Race 650 on there now and havent jetted yet but getting a clatter up top before shifting at 5500..

I beefed up the trans and changed converter for N20 with anti balloning plate etc.

I am having problems with back spacing on rims as I have 15x10 with 5.5 on there but prob need a 7.5 back spacing..I have the room now

Putting the 4 lug back on 8.8 and oz rear rims..do you know the size n back spacing on them as from pics i seen and with my measuring they look like a 15x8 with 6 in bs but i bet im measuring wrong..

Im hussling my butt off trying to get this car back together as it was a rolling project when i bought it..fueling issus/no brakes/missing interior/seat belts/wiring/ign wires cut/trans leaking from every spot imaginable and wants to run warm and doesnt cool real good with lil 16 inch fan..so i have a cust alum shroud on its way to see if that helps..got to get the power steering back on as it wants to walk the road and feels like slack in steering.. thanks

O.K. Honestly the first build pics from Originall builder were the best n cleanest..

I ended up with the left overs to try n salvage/fix etc best as possable

Im hopin not to have too much tied up in it when done even though the conversion kit by itself was about 8 grand..

I have replaced the missing interior n safety parts as of to date










Put Full Exhaust back on it..

15x10 w 5.5 back spacing and brand new 15x26x10 et drags and they stick out bout 1.5 inches too far and now have to buy more with right offset..
