Came back to the focus

Hey there guys, its been a long time since i have posted on the forum. I used to have an 07 white zx3 hatch but I traded it in 09. Anyway, I am a new owner of a 2013 Charcoal gray SE Hatch with the 6 spd powershift. Im liking the car so far *knocks on wood*, but i had the opportunity to rent a 2012 SEL hatch, so I knew I really liked it when i drove the the rental. Definitely seems to be much more fuel efficient than the 98 taurus duratec that I was driving is.

Thx, I'm trying to get caught up and see what good little mods I can do to give a little bit more power. Snorkel delete plus green or k&n seems popular here on the boards

Ya the MK3 is a much more solid car over the MK1, gets better fuel mileage than my ol auto 07 Zx3, and is the color I wanted. The DCT seems to work fine, hopefully that holds up lol.
