Good luck staying away from the strip after "one or two" runs.
If I lived as close as you do to a drag strip I'd be flat broke and my car would be beat to death.

Not my cup of tea to mod a car for no reason, but that's cool.
I purpose-build my cars so I can take them to the track and beat on them.
I have NO mercy on my car in the 1/4.
If it breaks I didn't build it right.

Yes, but you're also not boosted.

Why would anyone turbo a car with no intention of beating on it? When you run a mid-13 pass in your Focus for the first time, you will be hooked! lol Hell, the first time you put your foot down after getting it tuned, the turbo spools up, and throws you back in the seat, you will be hooked! lol

Got me a special package in the mail today.....

The F2 lightweight aluminum flywheel; 11 lbs, gives me the option to run Zetec clutches...










Also called SCT today; got my RMA number for the tuner. Tech support was very friendly and helpful. Sending the tuner to them tomorrow.
