The through wind would even help clean out my car. haha
BTW, I forgot to mention that the Cobra guy is about to get a procharger for it. :'(
You can also remove interior trim, front passenger seat, do a rear battery conversion, AC delete (if you don't mind running without) and so on.
running without doors and hatch might lighten the car, but it'll destroy aero (and your top speed with it)

For max zetec hp, you'll be looking at 2.3L stroker conversion, cams, boost and a lot of other odds and ends. I've seen a few foci on youtube pushing over 400hp this way. I have a stroker co-op thread open in this subforum at the moment actually, if interested. Three days left before I give up on the co-op til next year, assuming I don't just buy all 3 kits myself.
