Thank you for the welcome Felix but I will say this is a welcome back for me. I had a 2006 ZX4 SES (with the SAP) that I drove through high school and college. I am now in a position where I can afford to do all the mods I always wanted to do to my old focus so I found myself another one that needs some tlc to get back on the road. My plans for this one is to start autox in it and to grow with the car and slowly build it.

Remember, the 2.0 versions don't have it at all. (except the new ST's)
Thats pretty good, being on the oem mounts. I upgraded to a poly dogbone yrs ago & replaced the dsm w/ a vf engineering when I had to replace the reverse switch, since you have to remove the dsm to get to it. I'm still on the oem psm & trying to figure out which way to go= poly or oem when I need to replace the mount.

Nmarzoli04 Going to do this next oil change. Hoping I don't hate the added vibration..

felixthecat I've had cfm's udp's for a few yrs now w/ no issues. And to add to Sailors next mod,= VF's dogbone, A Steeda STS is a great upgrade also. And just think some people say its a waste of time & $ to mod a car.

The BSD was a "painless" improvement (Less weight, Quicker revs., more oil capacity, no appreciable increase in vibration).

The VF dogbone seems like the next step in "bang for the buck" to help calm down the wheel tramp that can develop.

Not as sure about the UDP for a DD, Thoughts?

Cheers!

Best thing is the car sounds much better than before...much more "authority". I like the idea of an additional quart of oil in the sump too.
