Cody's Blue Bomber Build Thread

Well, as some of you know, Im on foci #2. The first one died a painful death from a 35 foot embankment into a creek. Leaving me belted in, upside down in a creek. Id still like to know how I got out of the car. 2 weeks later, i bought my current focus from Ken (mod on FJ).

With 2XX,XXX, its had a h*ll of a run, I plan to run low boost via a vortech supercharger kit until i save up the money, and build a 350-400hp turboed monster. Right now, im starting to get the feel of how i want the car to look, and building up my to do list.

So far, I've got ATS type 10 wheels, professionally painted and refinished, raceland coilovers, SVT interior seats, black headlights, tinted taillights and rear window, s2 wing, EXCLUSIVE winter wheels (spray paint FTW, its even starting to chip off), SVT upper grille, Glow shift fuel presssure boost/vacuum and wideband AF gauges, custom gauge pod speedo surround, SVT radio surround, Dark Grey Dashboard, eventually a full LED swap inside, iceman CAI, VF engineering passenger mount, VF engineering sway bar bushings, MOOG swaybar endlinks with grease fittings, SVT header and the HKS style exhaust from Trubendz, soon to be Toms tune.

My hands are numb, ill post some pics up later, when i get off work.
