If you abuse anything with a turbo you are asking for it :-P

Seriously though, it was daily driver friendly, and im sure he could have tracked it no problem. He took it to the drag strip a few times. I have pictures somewhere.

They can take 11psi (stage 2 also on the stock motor) the reason mike was running low boost i think he didnt have the stage 2 clutch. I know of a foci that has beat a ms3 on the freeway and another n/a focus that smoked a 2011 wrx in the canyon lol. Foci are beasts! The wrx had a go pro but mistearously the video of his deafeat disappeared somehow lol. (Right click =>trash can lol)

Besides oil changes and basic maintenance, It hasnt been much.

Even at the price i bought my car, Ill be turbo'd and running with MS3s for just over half the price.
I would have said the same thing when I had my Svt but honestly you get what you pay for!
And it's about the same comparing the cars in price when they came out! original owner of my svt bought it for 23k new I paid 6k with 53k on it I got a hell of a deal!
I paid 18k for my ms3 with 20k on it.

Definately, I would love to have a MS3, as it is a newer car. But in the end, comparing my car to a MS3 will be six or 1/2 dozen.
