Preparing for 400hp+
Around this time next year, when I'm completely out of debt, I plan on going back into debt with turbo 2.3 or 2.5 putting out about 450whp. Built by Tom of course. In the mean time I plan on doing whatever is necessary to prep the Focus for such power levels. I plan on doing and FSWerks Stage 3 clutch, MFactory helical LSD, and stiffening up the suspension (I may get a wheelie bar made later on). My question is; what else should I do to prep? What are the weakest points on a FF putting down this much power? Can the half-shafts handle the torque? Basically, what will I break and how can I make it not?
Also, this will be my daily; at least for some time after I do all of this, so what tires should I run? I drive about 60 miles round trip to work each day.
Thanks in advance,
