How many miles on your car? As MANY people here will tell you they like to drop out valve seats at around 100k miles, so if you're close to that, pinch every penny and do a manual Zetec swap(If you want a manual that is). Keep in mind that these cars aren't designed to go fast. In comparison to some other cars, upgrades don't bring much HP gains. My advice is take your time, learn all that you can, and just love your car. Foci(?) are fun to work on, and so far it's been a great learning experience for me. Enjoy!!!
