Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because I built it myself, and it is an accopmlishment that I'm very proud of, especially having no prior experience building engines before. It has given me small quarks and trouble along the road and I have gone to sell it many times from being stressed out, but in the end, I just couldn't part with it. Then I turbocharged it and now I just love it because well, it beats the pants off of most of the cars I race. I get a lot of jaws dropping because people can't believe that 1. It's a boosted focus, 2. It's a sedan, and especially 3. It's an automatic."

His future plans:
"My future plans are to fabricate a paddle-shifting kit (one sick boost motherfocus!), get my hands on a Recaro interior when I can afford it, and also to get a limited slip, a transbrake, and an aluminum stator for my torque converter. I'd like to thank you all for showing continued support and offering help where I needed it. I learned almost everything from generous people on the forum willing to share their knowledge with me (Especially massive and the guys over at htperformance). They've helped me to take my focus farther than I could have ever imagined!"
