ok it was a few people that disagreed with different comments

1. was a fuel additive (i tried acetone and yes i got good results) stopped using it cuz i thought it would mess up my fuel system

2. i posted a focus saleen for sale that had 6 speed on the advertisement ( i have never scene a focus saleen in my life except online)

Tom(FF Landlord) drives a black Saleen Focus, I've seen it in person. The Saleen Focus(in general, not Toms, IDK what has been done under His hood) basically a zx3(or 5? IDK) with a Saleen designed body kit and wing and all the hookups for N2O including a trunk mounted tank(empty, of course). Hooking up the juice voided the warranty, so It was more for show than anything else.

Well, I don't know much about the Saleen focus, but ford almost had to of done something to make the motor stronger for nitrous. I know you guys said that it wasn't hooked up and it voided the warranty but if they were going to get it ready for the buyer then why wouldn't they GET IT READY for the buyer ya know...

I'm not to keen on nitrous anyway, unless the motor is built for it, but I would think that Ford would of thought enough to do something to the motor for it to handle nitrous wouldn't they guys?

ford did nothing to the block, niether did saleen. only changes to teh car were jsut posted. the nitrous system had a 35 or 50 hp. jet in it so it was totally safe on a stock engine design wise. but you know how people are with things like that so they did the whole warranty thiing to keep people from spraying their car till it exploded and the ncomplaining to ford and getting a new motor

to answer volvo, DOWNFORCE FTMFW!!!!! (yes it actually does something at high speed on that car)
