i dont like it because its a metal tube. to be honest it also has a lot to do with personal oppinion, ive never liked injen parts. and for the focus there are so many better options!

I'd say throttle body and cam gears and a tune would be a good way to go.

I personally wouldnt put the wrc replica spoiler on a basically stock appearing car, just wouldnt go right. I've heard that that wing only really looks good when you have the euro foci look.

Too many options! Here's some ideas.
Focussport flywheel
rear seat delete kit
1 racing seat. This might look funny but I think it would be a lot sportier to take out the passenger seat & let passengers sit in the back.
sway bars
higher compression pistons but you'd need some money for labor
If the H & R cupkit doesn't come with shocks you might want to get some
You could save a little bit more & get the Focus Central power package
Cf hood
