Just like doing the V8 kit but keeping the Zetec
I going to put big brakes on my focus witch cost around $700-800
I can buy a 2002 8.8 mustang rear end for under $1000 with dics brakes on it.
T5 mustang trans 5 speed + 500Hp turbo Zetec = badass Focus.
I went out and bought a focus just to make a fast show car out of it.
I shooting for the fastest foci in US so yes its going to be worth.
I can go and buy a SVT mustang if I want buy I want to build a Focus

I wont have to worry about traction just keeping the front wheels down
