I can't figure out what class I would be in. I have the mods listed below also my back seats and spare tire are gone.

Back seat removal automatically kicks you into SM (SCCA 2008 rules). With the back seats back in, you could run in STS, if your wheels are max 7.5 in wide, and your tire 225 max width.

I'm super confused here, so decided to ressurect this thread. I've been doing some research on what kind of things could be done to my car but still keep it in the H-stock class.. Currently it is bone stock.

The stock tires are 195/60-15 do I have to get the exact same size replacements? Or could I go 205/40-15? Its kind of hard to find good tires with these same dimensions haha.

Also I'm still confused on what the rules are if I were to want to swap in SVT shocks/struts/springs. From above posters, this would be an illegal move, correct?

My car came with no rear swaybar, so I'm out of luck on putting one of those on as well even though other year Focus' might have one?

To stay in H-stock...

You can use ANY size tire... You must, however, use stock size/width wheels, and the offset must be within 1/4" of stock. 205/50/15's are a very popular tire size. Yes, people HAVE squeezed 225's on stock 6" rims, but the benefit is open to debate as they are pinched...

The SVT shocks/struts are legal, and a common low-cost upgrade (I use them). However, you CANNOT change springs in H-stock, so that's a no-no.

Good news there, I'll probably go with some 205/50-15 Falken Azenis then. I'm going to use my stocker rims. I guess I will pick up some SVT shocks/struts but not springs!

Do you run a front swaybar? Personally I don't think I will run one because it will just increase my understeer..

So if you have even one thing in a higher class that qualifies you for that class. For me i would be in STS but i have a high flow cat which puts me in STX. is that how it works. thanks guys.

HFC is allowed in ST as long as it is in the stock location, and it's EPA approved:
Quote:
E. Catalytic Converters
ST, STS:
Catalytic converters may be replaced by aftermarket units.
Replacements must:
1) Be certified for use in that vehicle application by the manufacturer
or reconditioner,
2) Bear correct EPA-mandated labeling,
3) Be of the OE quantity and type (i.e. oxidation, three-way, etc.) and
4) Be used in the same location(s) as the OE converter(s).
This does allow for high performance replacements, provided they meet all restrictions herein.
Example...The CFM-HFC meets those requirements, and as such I'm still ST legal.

Wow!
We were on it at the same time, Auto-X-ZTS.
I just took longer to get the quote from the rule book.
