you will need this bracket for your TB(your profile says '03) - http://www.c-f-m.com/performancepart...m#.U-rezvldWSo

and this is CFM TB - http://www.c-f-m.com/performancepart...m#.U-rfOPldWSo

or a BBK TB (i have this one and i love it) - appears they didnt make one for the focus 1.5

as for exhaust you can make one if you have a welder, visit your local hot rod shop for tubing.

or borla- http://www.borla.com/products/focus_...t__140018.html

unless you want every last drop of performance its probably easier to get some 2.5' or 3' tubing and build it. get a muffler too

Thanks for the links, I'll probably do some easy "essential" mods on the engine, then put some into the suspension to make it handle better than it already does (this thing is like a road-legal gokart)

maybe the car will make him super cool and women, with condoms, will flock to him.

since he becomes super cool he will be the party king and everyone brings endless beer to his parties.

idk my imagination is running.

I'm thinking exhaust soon since my muffler is going to be rusted to bits, and the filter and whatnot can be done rather easily.
