yea you need to put little bolt-ons after a while. just do one bolt on at a time.

look at me i did that from a car that was supposed to be a high 16's focus to a 15.6 with just bolt ons. and i dont even have all the bolt on's my car. just the main ones. you will notice a difference with bolt on's too but not untill you race a stock focus to see the difference.

have fun with it.

your going to want to, next major thing is, do the whole exhaust. http://www.mcnewsautomotive.com/
theres a good deal on a header package. svt header+r/t catback+borla exhaust. i dont think anyone will argue with that setup.

smaller bolt ons:sparkplug wires and spark plugs. ford racing has some wires. it was recommended here that autolite plt for plugs. not really for hp, but to smooth out the engine.

another is a udp. i think it was like 3/4 hp. but thats 3/4 more hp.

DONT NOT BUY ANY PERFORMANCE CHIP OFF OF EBAY!!!!!
got to focussport.com get the chip from there or mcnews.
this is after atleast this many mods.

you can also look into cams and cam gears for more aggressive setup.
you are going to have to get your car dynoed after the cam gears.

than look in the suspension and wheels. makes for better handling.

cheers
oh yeah do a search and take your time

He says he has a 05 ZX3 so im guessing he has a Duratec engine there isnt much out there for 300 that will do 300 worth of performance
