yah under 100 would be nice ..

LOL, the only way we could even possibly touch $100, would be if these were produced in the 100,000 pieces range... I doubt that will happen since Ford will still be selling their OEM pieces to unknowing Focus owners.

We've discussed this before. The complexity of this product is far greater than an aftermarket throttle body, and you expect it to be the same cost or cheaper than the OEM Ford part? That just isn't realistic at all. You will definitely get what you are paying for; the highest-quality, and a final solution to the problem.

Think about how long you may own your focus, I know some have gone through multiple thermostat housings already, and that cost is piling up!

The value of this product is greater than $70 times how many housings over the course of your ownership. The peace of mind you get not needing to be concerned with the coolant systems' fatal flaw. The ability to install an aftermarket temperature sender. And even the enhanced visual appeal of the housing is what you get!
