drostedrummer89 two words: tur-bo. thats all you need, you can drive it everyday and be fine on low boost, turn it up and run faster than 14's. its basically the same amount as buying all those parts new, and your toddler doesnt have to hold on to the spare tire.

I know this is late but, there is no difference on the inside of the 00 vs 01 and up IM. The 01 and up is a two piece which can blow apart under hi boost. In a NA applacation it won't affect the way the car gets air. I have one only because it was there when I got the motor. I would not invest my money into one.

tallguy2.3 With every modification you take a step away from the civilized Ford engineering and throw caution to the wind. It will idle rough, probably be cold-blooded, be loud, vibrate more, get worse mileage, require premium fuel, etc... its a bit of a "can of worms" effect when you modify a car a lot.
Plus drag racing isn't exactly friendly on the drivetrain.

Personally I think that's a lot of hassle to run a high 14. Just not enough bang for the buck.

chris-13 My 2000 Focus with a Zetec ran 14.4 all day long,
with a Focus central header, Proflow MAFS, crower stg 2 cams, FC t/b, stock flywheel and clutch, 2.5" exhaust, intake, copper spark plugs, msd spark plug wires, a phantom grip lsd, that was about it.

underoath i'd do most of the basic bolt ons like others have listen except the head/cams...instead save some money, make more power and go nitrous! with a good tune.

etayman i have another ride mine is just the daily for now. Why would i mees it up none of these mods are exactly hard to do with the access to a lift dyno and a good guy too tune it all. By the way i dont plan on getting cams or the head for a while so i would have to be prety stupid to mess my car up.

03FocusZX3 Maybe you need to get another car to haul your wife and kid in before you start putting this stuff on it and on accidently mess it up, and then not even have a ride for them...

etayman [QUOTE=mlbbaseball;3409046]what you will need.

FR head
Crower stage 2 cams
cam gears
Svt header
2.5 inch all the way back,
no cat
65 mm tb
good intake (aem, pipercross, etc)
Torsen diff
good clutch
and drag radials or equivalent sticky tires

that will get you to the 14's end of story

If this list will put me in the 14s no problem then why coudnt i drive this car everyday? Its not like thats completly built for racing or anything.

as forthe udp, don't even bother, it throws off harmonics and doesn't give you power

etayman Why dont they go together? if done right i dont see why not. lightweight flywheel and wheels, UDP, exaust, CAI, 2000 intake mani, torsen,4.06 drive, header, cam gears, and a good tune Im sure would get me close and they are all road worthy mods same with bumping the compression and maybe even porting and a valve angle. Throw in some slicks and a cf hatch with lexan and a cf hood. Why wont that work for driving around town under 65mph?
