I know of a second gen that did stage 2 cams, and it seemed to give a pretty good bump in performance. This is with an auto though. Maybe the secret is skipping stage one and going stage 2.

Are the gaines worth the price on a 2.0? I am most likely keeping it for another couple years.

I'd say its up to you. I'd do the stage 1's. Its a noticable difference. All the little mods add up. What would you replace your foci w/?

I REALLY want an ST, but it's not gonna happen until graduate and get a better paying job. Maybe a 2011 or 2012 Mustang. Not sure exactly what I'd get. But then again we're talking about kids, so a more family friendly car may be needed soon. Hard to get a car seat in the back of the Focus.
