The 2.3 came in the pzev focus between '03 and '04 then was avaliable in the '05ish ST. There rarest focus to find with a 2.3 is a wagon. If you you can find a 2.3 five speed wagon it's considered a "unicorn".

Ok. I'm asking is the 2.3 in the '05 ST limited to the point it would be worth tuning it so its faster? (Again, N00b :p)

I mean, can you do that? Is it possible to make a stock engine "more powerful" without spending much? Or is that too unreal of a want?

I mean yea, you can add more power with some bolt-ons. Cold air intake, under drive pullys, header, exhaust. You'll probably gain 15-20 hp if your lucky. You'll have to go with a turbo if you really want to gain anything. Check out fswerks.com

roberted5 - General Tech section & a new thread stating your problem is the best way to get A/C answers, or clarification on the "how to" info..

Sarge - Duratec performance area has a LOT of info on that engine, Many options avail. - some cheap ones are worthwhile - but no BIG gains are cheap (grin). BTW - the ST is the most desirable Focus other than the SVT, they are quite close in performance.

Hi, my name is Scott, and I'm an alcoh...

Sorry, wrong intro.

Anyhoo, we needed a small hatch with decent mileage. I wanted a used Dodge Magnum, the wife wanted a new car (because she didn't want to put money into brakes, other crap, etc.), so we compromised, and got a new car.

It was between a Kia Soul and a Focus, and even though the Soul was cheaper and had more room, the Focus won out on driving dynamics, style, and basically everything else. The base Soul I drove was alright, but a brand new car without power mirrors or a spare tire? C'mon.

So a Blue Candy SE hatch with a 5 speed for us, thanksverymuch.



That was probably more info than anybody on here cares about, so if you don't like it, go pound
