The Saleen Focus comes with the 2.3 engine. IIRC it's set to squeeze a 75 shot.

Nope, I was wrong. The 04's and earlier are 2.3L Duratecs.

The 05's and newer are 2.0L Zetecs.

Hideous looking things with that outrageous body kit and hood scoop. I drove an 04' that this local Dodge dealership just picked up recently, and I was not impressed. Felt sluggish next to my SVT, but they did empty the NOS bottle before putting for sale on the lot. I thought the suspension would be better (stiffer, less roll), but it was more compliant than the SVT's.

I didn't take it out on a track you know, so it could be better balanced than it feels on the street. Thought I should at least add that.

so the saleen foci use a direct port system...i guess thats how they got around the "puddling" issue...i see that saleen has there nitrous activation kit for 399 is that a full direct port kit?

You think the Saleen Spoiler is a good performance mod as for keeping the car in control when going fast or is it for looks?

I have seen 2 No2 kits on 2.3L in CA?
