Junk Yards

Hey there everybody, looking for advice. Lately, I've gotten very tired of waiting out graduation to start working on the car. I've done some DIY things here and there, most I'm happy with, some could use rethinking. Lately, I've been wanting to step it up, but I'm still on a seriously tight budget. Other than hitting the for sale forums, (which I have already done and are serving me well), my other vice will be junk yards and U-pulls. My thinking is that I could possibly find wrecked cars with various intact parts. Gainesville is a small place and has one notable U-Pull, and it had nothing to offer me. In two weeks I will be hitting the Sarasota-Tampa area, a little more populated. The ultimate find would be a wrecked SVT. I'm lookin for a pedal set, as well as a snorkel/airbox. Chances may be slim.

1. What else should I be on the lookout for, be it for a profitable sale on the forums, or to enhance my SPI?

2. Other than the escort GT header, anything else off the SPI bretheren worth something to a Focus?

3. I heard that a mustang TB can be modified to replace the SPI TB, does anyone know what year to be on the lookout for, or any way to identify the TB in question?

4. Did any later model mustangs come standard with the aluminum fuel door that fits the Foci, or will it just be luck?
