Wow, thank you for all the kind words! I loved that ZX3, but having three cars is just too much and it would be great to see someone with fresh ideas get to work on the car and do the mods it always needed (SVT brakes, LSD, etc).

Thanks dude. Merkur is getting a new turbo this spring :)

Thanks!

Finally had a chance to change some things.

Steeda Short Shift Bracket:



FSWerks Intake:






This is actually my first FSWerks product...in 8 years of Focus ownership. Really impressed. Fit great, great install directions and very high quality parts.

Nice mods! How much of a pain was the shift bracket to do on the ST? I just did that yesterday on my NA III.

Thanks!

Hardest part was getting the airbox out. It really wasn't too hard at all, just need to be patient when removing the shift cable and when tightening the allen screws from the bottom.

80 mile trip including some traffic, highway cruise and sweeping back roads. Double the power of the cold car and 3-5 more mpgs? Yes please.



Started replacing the stock worm gear clamps with t-bolts clamps. Had a couple spares that fit, ordering the rest now. The OEM worm gear clamps were very loose and the couplers were starting to slip off the pipes.





Put in the FSWerks rear mount with sport bushing:







Comparing the ST, 08-11 Duratec, and 00-07 cars:

Yeah I have seen videos. I am kinda excited to get it in the mail. I'm matching mine with the Cobb tuning turbo inlet tube.
