Did you get 'em off? If slip a length of pipe (like a couple ft long) over your ratchet handle you can get more torque out of it

Installed BSD on my 06 Focus ST two days ago and today was first day on the road.
Feels like engine responds faster and there is some extra vibration.
Best thing is the car sounds much better than before...much more "authority". I like the idea of an additional quart of oil in the sump too.

The BSD was a "painless" improvement (Less weight, Quicker revs., more oil capacity, no appreciable increase in vibration).

The VF dogbone seems like the next step in "bang for the buck" to help calm down the wheel tramp that can develop.

Not as sure about the UDP for a DD, Thoughts?

Cheers!

I've had cfm's udp's for a few yrs now w/ no issues. And to add to Sailors next mod,= VF's dogbone, A Steeda STS is a great upgrade also. And just think some people say its a waste of time & $ to mod a car.
