I agree with mlb. You don't need to have low compression to make good power its all about efficiency. Won't be a dog driving around town when you arent boosting.

Even though the manual for the 2012 recommmends 87 octane I'm going to run Ethanol free 91 octane in hopes of that helping.

Its not the grade of gas that is causing the intake valves to get heavy deposits on them. Its the fact that since the engine is direct injected there isn't any fuel passing over the valve and cleaning it like in a traditional fuel injected engine. Therefore the oily gasses getting sucked into the intake manifold by primarily the PCV system bake onto the valve.

Just saw Ford has released a SS cat back exhaust for the 2012. I wonder if this could be used on 08-11 Foci?

No the chassis is 100% different. The muffler is placed improperly for the earlier models and the piping is routed completely wrong.

You should be able to you the early car's cat back system= '05-'07 2.0 cat back system. Punch up FocusWerk's or Central Florida Motorsport's.

Any idea if the Cosworth Intake manifold would be compatible?

My guess is they will make a new one, since this car is global, and cosworth does a lot of Ford performance.

The head is too different, the new DI head has the fuel rail and injectors under the intake manifold. The cosi would hit the rail.... And so on
