I figure 15whp at the absolute most for the tune and the header.

You should do a little more research before throwing all of these ideas out there.... Its almost like you want people to be impressed at you knowing what your talking about... but you are mostly incorrect lol not being a jerk here. Just trying to help you out so you don't start off with a bad rep as that kid....

Stock you have 136HP Max and that is with Ford's rating. With H/I/T/E your prob looking at about 165ish at best. Again not trying to crush your dreams here or be a jerk. Just trying to help you not sound uneducated on the matter. In order for your focus to do 0-60 in 6 seconds it will take turbo and then some....

whats all this about valve and rockers only being good to 180bhp? its the springs that need upgrading if you go with a stage 2+ cam

I have a 05 focus duratec and I was able to put a 00-04 2.25'' magnaflow flexback with some modifications to it. So now I have just the muffler, no front and back resonators. Sound awesome !
its the 05-07 line. got no resonator just the cat on the headers, which will be gone soon, so ill be straight piped pretty much other than the magnaflow muffler.

That being said, I am interested in what you plan on doing to get a 6s 0-60. That's about 210-220hp, which is quite a jump over the 150hp that the ST has.
forgot to do this, 1 post up explains
