Yep we get some spam once in a while. Anywho Doug, are you a modding type guy or are you keeping the Focus simple? Even a K&N drop in filter would be a nice improvement, even though your current one has barely any miles on it yet lol

And went to Farm and Barn and parked next to another focus hatch, all black and Black rims. We matched.
thanks David! sounds like you found your twin at F&F! very cool! since you are from/in roscoe, do you ever hit up that little car show circuit down there? every thursday (late spring, summer, early fall) they meet at different cafe/restaurants around the area... some of the places are Hawk's View, Roscoe Plaza, Sophia's and i think they added a new place too... anyways, they are always kind of fun, a grab a burger, some fries, and check out some cool cars... i usually hit one or two a month... personally i like the Roscoe Plaza ones the best because they are usually the biggest...

Doug

Doug you need to take out the 3.0 Yamaha and get a 3.2 in there. You get a 20 ft lb bump in torque. Gut out the silencer in the air box and 73mm mass air. Then when the secondaries open it is a lot more fun. Oh yeah the v6 SHO's were way better than the v8s.

Doug
I go to them whenever I have the time.
The Roscoe plaza one by the dollar general and dairy queen is the best one. More cars and better cars.
The one by Sophia isn't bad, kinda small.
I go to the Beloit cruise night/burnout pits every year. Love doing that, had my truck in it this year.

yes sir, i am definitely the modding type... i hope i don't get too shunned here but i am also a Dodge/Mopar guy... in March 2010 i was fortunate enough to find and purchase a new Plum Crazy Dodge Challenger R/T... when i bought the car, my intent was to keep everything factory stock... well, that didn't last as long as i thought it would... so far, i have added a Mopar CAI, a Petty R/T front strut tower brace, custom vinyl graphics, liquid metal flame airbrushed engine half covers, embroidered head rests, Corsa Extreme catback, and a Magnuson supercharger... the car is conservatively tuned to 460 RWHP and 471 TQ. if work goes well, i'm planning on a set of long tube headers, blue top transmission solenoids, and swapping the factory 3:06 rear end out with a 3:73... then turning up the heat to around 505 RWHP... then i think i'll be done with it... maybe?

as far as the Focus goes, i'm planning on keeping the performance stock... i would however like to add some custom Focus SE graphics to the lower half of the doors (similar to what the Ford Probes had (93-96 era) had one of them too for a brief period, a 93 Probe SE... i'm also thinking about a set of Focus door sill guards too... gotta get a new Ford license plate frame too... the Griffin Ford one it came with just isn't going to cut it... i'm sure though as time goes on my mod list will grow... once the mod bug bites, it's next to impossible to find a cure...
