wheels aren't chrome.

cant stretch these as they are already the smallest tires you can get, 16x7 25et with 195/40s. wheels weigh 11.5lbs. i'll have to get some new inners made to go wider.... but that's in the works!

lots of haters just don't know. they all probably rock EAP's or garbage like hotswaps and think that black centers with polished lips are cool and they have style. :P ;)

the US bumpers wont be lasting much longer


thanks for the comments!

i was confiused on the wheels size. so i'm guessing they are svt front brakes then? probably needed since you pysically doubled the power.

Are you going with euro bumpers? Also how wide you going to go with the wheels? Car looks sick man.

brakes are stock with brembo rotors and HPS pads. upgrade to the rally kit is down the road as i still need to drive the car in the winter and get the stock 15s on there.
Power didn't double or anywhere near it. power is around 170fwhp and 160lb/ft so a well put together Zetec with all the bolt ons and a nice head package can pull on me.

it would take a whole lot of stupidity to put one of these into any focus. it was done to do it and not for power. probably the most useless swap unless you just want the sound of a V6..... and this does sound really good! but for the cost you could turbo a zetec or duratec with a built engine and make 2-3x's the power and wouldn't be driving around a ticking timebomb. :)


if they get new inners i wont go bigger than 8.5" total.


SVT-C = SVT Contour
oh and this is a TRUE SVT contour engine from oil pan to valve covers crank pully to transmission and even the ECU and wiring harness.
