New member with a Mk2 and Mazda Speed Protege

Hey guys I've been lurking around for a little bit doing some reading and research. I've got a 2010 Focus SE 5 speed manual in a minty green color bought new and only owner. Got about 75K on her Still kicking good. Haven't had any issues really. Endlinks just took a dump so they need replaced but thats it so far. I use it as my daily and have a 2003.5 Mazdaspeed Protege as my autox toy/project. Currently working on that doing a wire tuck and removing all the wire loom replacing it with techflex, relocating the battery to the trunk, port and polishing the intake manifold, and stripping the interior. I think for the focus though I'd like to put a short shifter in and perhaps some stiffer suspension to reduce body roll but not needed. Really just going to maintain that one for a good daily.

Welcome to the site. And the white wheels look pretty awesome on that yellow. Check out c-f-m.com they have some cool shifters for the Focus.

Thanks everyone. The wheels are enkei rpf1's accented with a 4 piston wilwood 13" rotor brake kit for track time . I'm looking at putting one of the new Garret GTX 11 blade turbos on her. I had a gt28rs on my other msp before she met the back of a truck.

The dead blue MSP shortly before a redheaded step child ruined her.




Right now this is how my yellow MSP sits. (on jack stands aka the natural habitat for these cars lol)

Question for you guys. Anyone with a mk2 have any rusting areas? While detailing mine saturday I found some rusting in the drivers side rear door and bubbling in the pass side rear door.
