Living in Kansas city completely slamming my focus is not an option unless I want to trash my under carriage. I might go SVT and if I do will I still need the entire front clip? An as for rear bumper cover what option do I have being a 4 door?

Since you have a '01, you just need the svt bumper cover. If you want to add a sap bumper to the rear, you'll need the sap sedan bumper, trunk deck & tailights from a '05,'06,'07 sedan.

So the trunk, tail lights and rear bumper cover from an SAP 05- 07 will work on my MK I?

Correct. I'd find the sap rear sedan bumper 1st thou. The trunk deck/tail lights should be easy to find.

Thats the pro-DTM by ED. I'd also look at the E-spec front bumper to. The E-spec is urethane which is tougher for street use. Hitup http://andysautosport.com for ideas. I have the Wingswest skirts & the how up really good being urethane vs fiberglass.

Andy's is where I spend a lot of my time looking. For the price the Pro-DTM is probably the route i'm gonna go with this Focus. trying to get my hands on a ZX3 for a full build. I really don't expect this car to last another 2 years before it ends up being a parts car or just sitting in the back of my shop. But gotta drive it until I get my truck paid off. then it's either svt zx3 or bran new Focus. I really appricate all the help you have gave me. I found it's gonna be cheaper to do the whole pro-DTM kit than svt front and SAP rear, That's including paint.

Zetec 209k miles, original clutch, Only thing that has been replace in the life of the car is battery, alternator, belt and tension-er, PS pump, Thermostat housing, And that plastic coolant tune that runs across the top of the radiator for the heater. And all of the normal stuff, tires, brakes, etc.. Gotta put a valve cover gasket in it before long. Oh and it has a cheap ass CAI from ebay on it. I got it for free so I used it. And no muffler. lol

If thats the case, 2 yrs if that, Then why wouldn't you just save your money towards another car then? I have nothing sitting around for more then 6 months unless it runs.
