I will probably have to end up getting them online, sadly there aren't many SVT Foci around here. But, if I do go to the junkyard, I could be surprised lol

Cheapest mod I ever enjoyed was pulling the silencer off the intake, dont think it does anything for performance but just changes the sound a little.

intake i enjoyed was the AEM short ram, i did have the true AEM cold air intake for a while but i got scared everytime i hit a puddle. Sucking up water would have been less than ideal.

for springs I ran Eibach Sportlines ( i believe, its been so long since i had a modified focus i cant remember) I likes them a lot, good drop but suspension was stiff (which i liked)

As for exhaust all i did was cut that gawdy muffler, didnt sound the greatest but if was different and also free.

next cosmetic id recommend if the highbeam with fogs mod, just bypass the relay and ur fogs can stay on with highbeams.

Yeah, I'll probably yank the intake silencer off before work today and see how it sounds. I want to take that resonator off but my father will not let me.

Also, a little off topic from performance mod, check out the gutter guard grille mod. I did it and it made a huge difference on the looks of my last focus

I'll check it out, and good call on the intake silencer. Makes a huge difference. The only thing I gotta worry about is puddles now, right? No rain?

I dont think you will ever have a problem with puddles, i never have, or rain. As long as you dont try making your focus a submersible and try to cross rivers or ponds you should be golden.

Crap, now you're onto my plan... The last thing I want to do is ruin a gem of a little Foci. But that intake noise sounds really, really good. And I like how it isn't there unless you want it to be.
