complete noob with a 2010 coupe

im a complete newbie to the focus world, basically all fords in general. last ford I owned was a ford probe. lol that was 15 or 16 years ago. this week I was looking for a new car and decided to trade in my Silverado and Honda civic. I stopped at the dealership to buy a new focus but they didn't have what I was looking for and I spotted a 2010 focus coupe , I had not even paid attention to these cars and was surprised . ok on to the question. I really like this car and it fits me almost perfectly well all except I love performance. im not looking for a 14 second car because I have a Camaro for that sort of stuff but better handling and better power. so if you were me were would you start? what are the best bang for the buck upgrades? ive been reading the stickies and search as a reference and starting point. also it is say pzev on the driver side window

Watch this video from 5 min mark to see mine with the mods in my sig. Also it was a very hot day(102degrees) so performance was hindered a bit.
