Agreed. MCM is pretty entertaining too, definitely a good watch

My dreams for this car are just going down the drain...but like I said thanks for the reality check guys, I thought the aftermarket was bigger for these cars..

I probably will just do headers, full exhaust, might see if I can get my intake manifold ported, full suspension, and a small 25hp shot of nos.
Of course all my under hood components will be color matched/custom carbon fiber when I get my paint job.

For the inside I will have custom re upholstered recaros in the front, and custom upholstered bucket seats in the back, with a suede headliner and pillars.

For the outside it will be a completely custom paint job and some body mods/custom lighting.

Good thing is, it's for my wife and she doesn't need 650+rwhp like I do(I wouldn't even want her to have that much lol). ;)

Thanks for all the help, and I will keep you guys updated and will probably post some of my mock ups of the paint job/with body mods, just to make sure y'all think it looks alright and not TO crazy :eek:

It will be getting house of kolor for sure, but haven't decided on the exact color yet.(so many choices!!)

Once again, thanks for the reality check on the turbo/v8 swap, I wish it could be done, but it just doesn't sound possible..

It takes months of fab work then dyno then fab work to make a proper turbo kit

Its a lot of hard work even for a 1 off kit if you do it right

The blue mustang is an 06 that I have, it is supercharged with custom painted carbon fiber fenders, and has all aftermarket parts as you can tell(full suspension, exhaust, whipple charger, halo, rims, hood, front bumper from California special,grille etc) also the side stripes are painted.

The 1970 I restored from the ground up with a show quality paint job.

I just bought the 13 but it already has headers, full exhaust, boss intake manifold and more.

I also have an 08 Tahoe and 2012 focus.... Lol

If you have all those Mustangs why mess with a Focus?. The best choice for a Focus build would be to just buy the Focus ST and modify that. The standard Focus 2.0 has 12:1 compression, that will not work with forced induction.

I really like the Boss 302 and 2013 Mustangs of yours.
