It's got a ford forged crank, before they switched to the cast ones, Mahle pistons and forged I beams but I forgot what brand because I build the block a couple years ago.
I have stage 3 ported c heads and a ported boss 260 intake too. I'm thinking of making it a short runner.

The engine is a 2 liter 4 banger, low to mid-range torque is gonna be hard to come by. I really don't know much about this engine but I would assume that the most torque you'll pull out of it at usable RPMs could come from a supercharger or stroking/boring the engine.
If you put a supercharger on the engine, it would have a good increase in torque and horsepower throughout the entire powerband, but especially more-so at lower RPMs (compared to a turbocharger or N/A mods).
If you were to bore or stroke the engine, you would increase the displacement, so the engine would go from a 2.0 liter to, say, 2.3 liters. If the Focus puts out 159hp and 146tq at 2000cc stock, or 79.5hp/L and 73tq/L, you could assume that another 300ccs would boost those numbers to 183hp and 168tq. Those numbers are definitely just predictions. But still, a theoretical extra 22 ft lbs of torque would be helpful and would most definitely be felt at the low and mid-range.
My advice for right now-- wait for others to lay the foundation for mods and prove the reliability of them.

|JL330||Tb = throttle body. It's just a spacer between the throttle body and intake, I honestly don't see it being too beneficial. Shorty header is an exhaust mod, it goes before your catback and bolts to the head. I haven't seen any testing done on these with our cars though. It's all speculation at this point, none of us really have a clue what these things are capable of, especially with stock internals. We'll see more go fast goodies when the warranties start expiring.|
