If you're asking me, every bushing on my car is poly. The mounts are stock, but that's not difficult to change.

Exactly. To my knowledge (and this thread has proved this) no one in the States really has a running, cammed SVT/ST170, so all of this is just speculation anyhow.

To everyone trying to convince me that F/I is the way to go -- I've been around the Focus scene for quite some time, and am well aware of the pitfalls of trying to go N/A on this car. However, the way I look at it, modifying cars is basically like pissing money down the drain anyhow, so why not at least do something different?

Also, I fail to see how a pair of $750 cams is going to translate into $1500. I've already said that I'm not planning on doing a full-on 12.5:1 race build (at least not right now), so the cam grind I'm looking at is one that doesn't require valve train work. My tentative plan right now would be those cams and a Zetec head gasket.
