Zetec intake does not work on SPI's. All other mods are fine. 10-15 whp....doesn't sound like alot, but will make a good difference. And when you're not dogging it...you should see an increase in mileage too.

As the others have said, you can't put the early intake manifold on your SPI. Better check on that 60mm t/b, Black Diamond Racing makes that for Focus Central and FC is out of them and last time I asked, BDR had no plans to make any more t/bs. So, that impacts your intake kit plans as well, if you go with the Iceman and no 60mm t/b, then you need to make sure you get the Iceman kit for the SPI with the reducer. Check on the FC short header as well, they had to be re-worked for a fitting issue, and I'm not sure they got them back from the guys that make they for FC yet. On the spark plugs wires, the Zetec wire kits won't work on your SPI, at least I don't thing they will, so make sure you find SPI wires. Focus Sport makes SPI wires. Otherwise, the UDP is a good choice, Magnaflow catback as well...
