Sounds good, but i didnt hear anything remotely close to a turbo spool.

That being said, I am interested in what you plan on doing to get a 6s 0-60. That's about 210-220hp, which is quite a jump over the 150hp that the ST has.

im probably looking at a 2 year build because im in collage now, but after the headers and intake(bought the car 3 months ago) ill be going to toronto to get the dyno tune for the summer, which should at least bring me up to 170-180 crank horse power running 91 octane. and knowing that the valves and rockers are only good to 180hp before having problems. i will be replacing them and throwing in a stage 2 cam. the car will be compleatly gutted this spring, except for the 2 front seats. possibly throwing in a cheaper set of racing seats. Ive been looking at obx headers as my next buy. Anyone have them on there car or another brand thats in the 200-300$ range. This is a 2007 ford focus btw with sap package 120,000km on it

Nice exhaust tone ! Is it a 05-07 or the 00-04 magnaflow line on your 07 focus ?

I have a 05 focus duratec and I was able to put a 00-04 2.25'' magnaflow flexback with some modifications to it. So now I have just the muffler, no front and back resonators. Sound awesome !

its the 05-07 line. got no resonator just the cat on the headers, which will be gone soon, so ill be straight piped pretty much other than the magnaflow muffler.

whats all this about valve and rockers only being good to 180bhp? its the springs that need upgrading if you go with a stage 2+ cam
