you should just change the thread name to what fits a MK3 focus. because we all know a MK2 duratec long tube header will fit and im actually trying to see if a duratec fidenza flywheel will fit the mk3

Are there any aftermarket endlinks that fit? That's something I want to know before I buy sways... I realize the market is 'evolving'.

Updates on the MS3/MK3 Suspension? I'm dying to know if someone has seen them side by side.

Pretty sure the struts swap, I've seen where somebody did it on here.

The lower mounting brackets had to be modified slightly and they still needed to re-route the brake lines but they were able to use the Koni yellow Struts for the front for a MS3 and some Bilstein rear shocks from a Volvo V50 Estate for their better rebound damping iirc.

So for the race header will the fswerks FS029 for 2003-2011 2.0-2.3L work? or do we just have to find a used f2?

So to clarify one last time about the MS3 RMM, it makes the car feel more connected to the road? Is there any noticable changes in vibration? All that is needed is the RMM and that bolt? (or hardware store bolt)?

I have a DCT so what changes would I experience with this mod? I am really concerned about vibration...I want none of that.

I doesn't feel more connected to the road. It makes the engine feel more connected to the car. In other words, when you accelerate, you will feel a more immediate, direct response to the wheels. I noticed no increase in vibration at all in my manual trans.-equipped car, just a more "connected" feel to the engine.

All you need is the mount and a bolt, whether you buy the Mazda bolt or a hardware store bolt is up to you.
