I saw basically the same unit someplace on line that's 1:1 1/2. That'd be more like it.

|Oregon-ized||The quickest steering car that I ever drove (didn't own) was an 87 Dodge Lancer ES Turbo, which had a 103" wb like our Foci, and 2 turns lock to lock. Not only insanely quick steering, but the most comfortable and supportive bucket seats of any car I've ever driven. A true American 4 dr sport sedan.|

Well...if its that important to you it wouldn't be that hard to put in, there are a few spots in the column with more than 8" of shaft. Although I think it would be a permanent mod, unless you wanted to swap out the entire column for track days and otherwise.
A 1 1/3 lock to lock column would definitely take a bit of getting used to.

They're saying 8" overall length- that would be a bear to stuff into a focus without MAJOR mods to the whole steering column. I think these are intended to be used where you're building a car from scratch, and you can lay the steering system out to accomodate it right from the beginning.
I must say though, I really don't see any reason why a car like the focus should need more than 2 turns lock-to-lock. It has 2 2/3 turns, btw.
Thanks for checking that out-

This may sound funny, but then again so did the question IMO.
Try Dirtworks...they make a 2:1 quickner thats a universal kit. We use them on buggies out here. They're pretty small
found the part out of the kit for ya...

|Blurvfocus||Ah well fughedaboudit then. I guess it was a hair-brained idea in the first place...|
