yea focus central knows their stuff. remeber focus are fwd and inherently have probelms getting power to the ground cuz when u accelarate gravity pulls u back no forwrad, so u get wheel hop. motor mounts are good, also a quiafe or som,ething. to get better top end, u need forced induction. foci are better midrange.good luck

That would be great but...
Torsen T-2 Differential: $600.00
Centerforce Clutch: $225.00
4.06 Ring & Pinion: $150.00
-----------------------------------------
Total: $975.00 + Labor

If you do one, you have to do them all because labor to pull the trans is enough to give you a heart attack!!
