I have Tom's ATX tune on my 2009.. It's sick! Really put the mods to full potential.
I love it on the highway, when you crank it and it swaps gears it really picks up nice.

I found a older, discontinued Marcy Motorsports CAI. Basically the same design as the OLD focus sport one. Got it for 80 bucks here on the forum.

I changed out my springs but I reused the used the OEM shocks. Luckily my springs are the same of the 04 - earlier so I picked up a set of used springs from a 2004 saleen focus for 100 bucks on the forum; dropped my car 1.5"

For 12`s you will need a full built Lentech , valve body , converter , trans brake , LSD , extra clutches the works wont be cheap but will make getting to the 12`s easier

Start saving for a Lentech

I ran the local brackets here in AZ dial in: 14.0 @ 100 mph with a 50 shot and the most generic "tuning" done by Tom. I say that in a good way btw. He tuned my car in between runs while running his own cars and doing other things at FF08. I dropped .5 seconds over the tune I had in place from FS so I stuck with it, did a few minor changes when I got back to AZ and my local track, was dialed in at 14 flat until the motor went, and that is another story.

Get your nitrous stuff together, and contact Tom for the XCal and tune. I have video after video of me spanking ass with a simple nitrous set-up, a gutted car, and a good tune

I would say at hat point you should have had him build you a motor or build it yourself. Your gonna need to bust her open for 12's homie. That or one hell of a huge shot on a bad ass nos system, nothing American made, look at WON products before you start buying. Wizards of Nitrous = WON , and you will NEED a progressive controller to spray that much, not a window switch, a PROGRESSIVE controller, be ready to drop a G on a nice one.
