hands on

Is there anyone that could give me a ride in their JRSCed focus who lives in MD? I can''t decide if I'd like to go the SC route and I think it'd be best if I experienced the SC ride first.

Thanks.

...."first" before I part with these dead presidents

I'm well aware of your kits and hold them in the highest regard. I'm just not sure what I want. I think that around 190hp/190tq would be a freaking blast in my focus but im worried that the stock focus drivetrain wouldn't hold up for long. Then I'd have to spring for those upgrades as well. I'm thinking for a downgrade in power I can get away with these stock parts. Maybe I'm just talking crazy cuz I'm still educating myself on FI. If so set me straight. I'm just looking for a reliable and daily drivable focus with the power I think it deserves.

There are only 2 things that may give you trouble at the 190/190 power level and that would be clutch and Diff everything else i havent seen any issues with

There isnt a SC that will give you 190/190 that i know of out there , There is a few of my turbo kits in MD have them set it on low boost and ride in both then make your true informed decision as to that you better works for you

My kit will make 200/200 but that does not mean you have to have it there , thats the nice thing about turbos , you can go from 150/150 to 200/200 at the flick of a switch
