O-o I'd post pics too, but XD I haven't really updated my car at all... Money issues suck. (XD Or... rather, the lack of money - issue - sucks... can't do anything to my car.)

?? Just wondering, Does anyone know where I could get a better engine for my car, and how much? I've got the crappy duratec 2.0l auto... O-o it'd be so nice if I could get a manual also... but that'd probably take a bit of conversion to my auto. (it is floor shift though... which is nice....er.)

The duratec 2.0L is a VERY good engine, and the transmission is VERY reliable, WHAT gave you the impression that they are "Crappy" ?????

The fact they have no power...

O-o my car beforehand was a 90 beretta, and when you go down from a v6 3.1L to a 4 banger 2.0L, there is considerable loss of power (mainly higher speeds, but fairly well in acceleration) I want something that can at least compare with my last car.

(was quite a beat up car too, but the engine worked well, especially for only paying $300 for it origonally.... T_T I miss my beretta... had spunk)

But, I have the focus now... so I'm looking at the "How to make it faster/more powerful/sleeker", but always run into that darn money issue everyone has problems with.

shoulda just bought an ST MTX swaps are tedious and expensive! we're talkin axles, mounts, tranny, pedal assemblies (which also means u need a new shifter base, and u'll probably have to get a new harness and ECU...

I finally got around to painting my mirrors. Check it out!






They turned out perfect, and they are very glossy in person.
They match the paint perfect......I love it.
I also painted my a/c vent surrounds.
These are teasers, but I'll have a full photoshoot up soon.
