First even if the Ford dealer installs your SC your powertrain warranty is DEAD , NO MORE , LOST , GONE , NADA

fokuzx3, There is no SC car out there running 12`s with just a FI kit , Exh , clutch/fly , I ran 12`s with that in a full interior Focus on DOT tires

If I were geting an SC, I'd get the powerworks, simply for the sleeper look of the kit, from looking just at the engine, it is very hard to tell that it has any type of FI on the car, unless someone knows the Zetec quite well....I think it would be great to romp RSX's that just think you've got a new IM and some bolt ons
