Help! I have no idea what I am doing.

Hey all. I have a green 2001 Ford Focus Four door station wagon. She is my baby. I was really thinking about it and I want to turn her into a sleeper. You know, do almost no body work but mod her out like crazy under the hood? So I have no idea where to start but does someone here know? Thanks for your reply! And try to keep everything in simple terms... I do not speak car...

Moved this to "Zetec performance" since you want to know about what performance parts to get.

Cold air intake!
Header and exhaust work (if you're going sleeper, look at the FSWerks Stealth exhaust kit)
SVT suspension kits (drops about .5" so it doesn't appear to be modified at all, gets it a little stiffer all around)
