I think you are calling the wrong number by the way. I have been calling the one on their Ebay listing: (815)675-1822 and the lady has put me on the phone with a knowledgeable individual every time. But yeah on the plugs the trusty Coppers are best bang for your buck, I don't deal with "designer" sparkplugs that yield no benefits. Factory Motorcraft for long life and Autolite AR103s for cheap dyno proven HP.
Fairley easy to change out the crank pulley. For plugs I use Denso iridiums= beats the oem plugs.

So I finally got ahold of the tech guy at Massive and he had no idea what size belt I needed. Apparently this pulley must not have been tested on the focus or he would have known. The stock size is 87.5 and I tried the next two sizes up but they were still too short. Its a guessing game now and I don't have the time or money to waste. So Yellow Hatch its yours for what I paid for it if you still want one. Otherwise its going back on the marketplace.

Not sure Felix. Only way to really get an accurate length is to put the massive pulley on and run a string and measure it. My mechanic already had it apart twice though so I don't really want to go through that again.

Sorry it didn't work out for you. But yeah I will pass, if it does not net any measurable gains alone I don't want it (especially if you need the crank pulley to benefit). Perhaps now you can put the cash towards cams, header, and tune.

Definitely need a tune before I can go any further. Might be content with how it performs after that. I wanna start dressing up the outside of my car then.

I could measure the Massive one and let you know. As far as the stock one goes I don't know because I didn't see them side by side. My mechanic said the difference was a good bit though.

Say the oem one is 5'' diameter & the aftermarket one is 6'', I'd be thinking you add a 1'' length to the belt. And what pulley is this any way?
