i'd easily be in the 200+ range so its frustrating to me to put so much into my car and still have it be slower than a ton of stock 4 bangers
or you could've been boosted and made more power. Plus, i saw a complete manual transmission swap for 800 bucks...including transmission. :) sooo for about 3k, you could've been manual swapped and FI. Hard lessons to learn.

its not a "kit" perse...its everything you need to swap a manual into a focus. It was on FJ in the classifieds a while back. I'll look...
