It HITS! Now I do have a bit of a trans tweak via the SCT, but it does hit nicely. I haven't romped on it yet, but rest assure I will very soon. For daily driving and some lightly spirited blasts the shifts are firm and crisp. None of the slippage i felt before.

How long since the last tranny fluid change? Fords are odd in that of you don't hit them every 12-15k, they slip like a fat bioch on ice.

i think I just had an accident in my pants, you just did part of what I always wanted to do to my ATX. Can you please expand on it a bit. I am really interested in your overview of the install and driving experience.


Thakyou

Well you can either edit it in under the pics or do the write up email it to me at Focusin06@yahoo.com and I can add it in myself.


Your choice.
Jon

The Alto pack is an upgrade setup for the direct clutch pack in the ATX equipped Foci.
