hell yeah he is. These mk3's are very restricted and if you let them breathe they open up really well. I didnt notice any real gains from my cat back exhaust but when I put on the K&N it really opened it up.

Are you being fooled by the sound? Even with an intake my car is still a turd.

If most people are making ~170HP @ the wheels. How much are they making at the motor? ~190ish?

Second I advise you to remember that this is a Ford Focus, not exactly a performance vehicle. You probably got all of none horsepower from that intake. Probably none from the exhaust as well.
Good luck.

Hi since you did not answer a single question with your answer I am going to laugh at you now...

I guess 40+whp from Cold air intake, Headers and Exhaust isnt alot of power.

Another person added to the ignore list.

Thanks though.

I've got 9,000 posts. Chances are good that I'll be around here for a LONG time yet...



No. No you can't.
Yes Yes we can.

Now do us a favor and shout up to your mom that you need more hot pockets you apparently are having withdrawals and are taking it out on us.

Also with 9000 posts I could still get you removed so continue adding nothing to this website and lets see how long you stay.

How is lionsroar still on the forums? Hasn't he been banned yet? And didn't he get rid of his focus anyway?

What Focus, the last Ford I recall that they had was a 2.3 L i4 Fusion 5MT, I'm not sure if he ever had a Focus.

So I've been doing some looking around this sure and I have come to 3 typical suggestions on upgrades. Intake, exhaust and headers. But what have people done performance wise beyond this. Im looking to bump up horsepower and torque. Any other suggestions? I realize that this is a new car and there aren't many aftermarket performance products out there yet.
