Mcnewsautomotive Shop Car

I like the guys at mcnews and thought I would shine a light on their shop car. Thats one of the cool thing about those guys, they are more than just parts dealers. They have technical knowledge and racing backrounds also.

On to the good stuff, first off here are the cars power modifications:

Ford Racing cylinder head (out of the box, unmilled.)
Cat stage 2 cams (.408 in/.393 ex 238 in/230 ex @ .050 110 degree LSA)
Ported 2000 Focus intake manifold
Ford Racing CAI (Iceman)
Ford Racing adjustable cam gears
Ford Racing UDP
BBK Throttle body
Pro-M MAF
Diablosport chip (custom burn)
SVT Focus race header
Custom 2.5" flexpipe
MBRP 2.5" cat back system

It dyno'd at 159.6 whp and 154.4 wtq, it has run 13.9's at 100 mph

Here is a pic of the car:

is that the rs bumper on the bc ive been wondering what a side shot would like of those bc i was thinkin about gettin one this summer but didnt know if it would fit right bc of the rs's flared out fenders. but damn ive ordered from them before and the only neg i saw was it took awhile for me to get the stuff but other than that they id a good job and have a great site and that car looks like a killer to me.hopefully ill get my car close to that nice one day.

Just imagine the kind of #'s possible if the cylinder head was milled to raise compression and a Ford Racing intake manifold was used.
