What are your engine specs? Start there, then "follow the yellow brick road" so to speak under the Performance thread for your specific engine

I recommend first using the search function on the forum to find information that has already been covered 50,000 times.

Second I advise you to remember that this is a Ford Focus, not exactly a performance vehicle. You probably got all of none horsepower from that intake. Probably none from the exhaust as well.
Good luck.

Someone's bitter. Actually people are gaining +20 hp from intake and exhaust alone. Add a header and you could break 180 whp which is very respectable to me.

Hi since you did not answer a single question with your answer I am going to laugh at you now...

I guess 40+whp from Cold air intake, Headers and Exhaust isnt alot of power.

Another person added to the ignore list.
