+1 to this!!
Buy a set of Koni Oranges and you will love the car in a whole new way. NOT springs, unless you are tracking the thing!! I have a mustang that is a dedicated track car, tons of power and plenty of fun. I love racing my mustang but I love DRIVING my Focus. If you can understand what I am staying.

SUSPENSION! Its amazing what a nice set up will do for you and it wont cost you so much unless you do coilovers.
These cars really shine with just a good suspension set up and I dont think anyone can really argue with that. After you do that, then address your power. Boost it or dont bother with power mods.

Hi Guys... okay there has been some minor set backs
Most of the Engineers have just started operating for this year, Luckily my first cousin is a mechanical engineer so he has managed to assist me in drawing up the specs for the cams... all that needs to be done is forward this to a cnc operator to manufacture it, as well as buy the correct metal.
Some people are saying that this is a long route however it will be a custom one, South Africa does not support the ST170 well... So not weight of the actual produced cams will have to be calculated.
Valves also at delay but now the metal has come through so that is in process and valve springs will be purchased from AEM.
Interms of how the bottom end will cope, I am considering forged pistons... would really like a sponsor now....lmao
I think this project might just go all out to the max

AJ , curious why you are wasting so much money on things that are just not going to help much if any ,
your valves you having made , the valves in the Merc AMG C63 will cost about 350-600 each to get made
knife edging the crank
cross porting the crank ?????
vernier pulleys on the cams ???????
You talk a good story but why put $20-30,000 into the SVT engine when you can add boost for about 4500.00 and built engine to make 600HP to the wheels for about 3500-4000.00 = 9000.00 and be done with it when adding another 10,000-20,000 to the engine wont net you another 100HP at the same boost ?????
You have said nothing about going to a larger diameter tappets in the head for the larger base circle your talking about with your cams (needed) valve springs where you getting them from , will take serious valve springs for this build ,steel crank , CGI Block , billet main caps , harmonic balancer etc etc etc

Interested in seeing if this pans out.
Why not at least design if not actually implement FI first and build everything else around it specifically? (C/R, etc)
