Well the first thing I noticed is that it says 2000-2006 Zetec. The Zetec stopped after 04. So I never wanna buy stuff from a site that can't even get the years right. I know it's a little thing but when spending this kind of money it matters.

Second it looks a lot like an Ebay kit to me.

Third I don't think anybody has tried to my knowledge. I could very easily be wrong though. I just haven't seen anybody with that set up on here or any other sites.

Fourth, if you're gonna boost your Focus, go quality. Start looking into Tom's DIY kit or a good used kit from somebody on here.
