For a heavy pig, she ain't bad. Being an under powered 4 cylinder autotradgic, she doesn't have enough power to pull out of the corners. It's the wife's car & she likes it, which is all that matters.

sounds like a good amount of stuff! isn't the svt header and a bigger intake one of the biggest power adders for the stock foci? lol wish there were worth while affordable mods for the svt but its already pretty much maxxed out

Air in Air Out. I wanted to go Turbo with it, but didn't have the funds to do it right. Wanted to upgrade the clutch and diff and either go with a Vortec S/C or Turbo kit. Drove my buddies turbo'd ST and decided against it. 1st and 2nd were pretty useless when you were getting on it or even semi getting on it, even had a diff and stage 3 clutch.

this thing was at full boost (250hp & 250tq roughly) at 2,500 rpm's. I was getting into boost without even trying. I actually lit up both wheels in downtown Oberlin and didn't even realize it. Factory turbo'd vehicles 'usually' have tuning to allow the turbo to no create as much boost in the lower gears so you can actually get on it without smokin the tires as easily basically more drive-able. My 7 has AWD so i don't have to worry about tire spin. Sometimes tuning get's aggressive & just kills the car in lower gears. BUT being turbo'd factory means the car can handle boost & you don't have to worry about excessive boost or other problems from boosting a car that wasn't turbo'd before.

Don't get me wrong, i liked the car and i only drove it for a week, so it wasn't my dd, but it sure was a hoot to drive.
