yeah. I mean there are obviously downsides with the svt, but I honestly could drive mine another 100k and not get bored. It's just a fun DD.

If I trusted the motor in mine better. (I guess I could after 25k) I'd build it NA like Elliot had, lower it to about where Wales is sitting, bigger sways, and have a fun paid off DD. But alas, I do not trust it.

yeah, idk. I mean not that this is necessary your motive so I apologize for the soapbox, I just don't understand how the focus community seems to be so set on having the fastest focus/cleanest/lowest etc. I mean, the difference in HP NA is so minimal, it's really just not that kind of car. If you want more go turbo or get another car. Nobody ever ends up satisfied trying to have the best car. The focus is just a nice looking and fun DD.

Aku I am the exact same way about wanting stuff. Only difference is I've put myself in crappy situations financially over it before. I get a visual and just run with it. I'm getting better about it but the thought is always there. It's just part of being a car guy.

Also Chas I agree 100% about the focus just being a fun dd. sure I absolutely love Brent's turbo'd one and I'd love to procharge mine eventually but as of right now I'm just enjoying driving the hell out of it. I'm very slowly coming to terms with the fact that it's just a focus. I'll still mod it but it's gonna be in due time

Only motor that's decent quick is 2.3 but like Kyle said I don't trust it either. If it makes it past October/November 2012 il be happy. That time of year something brakes which costs $1200-4000 every year!!!

Car looks great in the pictures scott!

The focus was one of the better handling cars I've owned I just wish their power level was more in line with say a mk4 vw they'd be an absolute riot then.

Like Jordan said the timing belt and stuff has been done. The brakes were done when I got it, new control arms/ball joints/bushings, new front spring, new flex pipe and decent tires. Only thing wrong with it is the fan resistor switch whatever thing is broke so if you're sitting in heavy traffic the fan won't kick on unless you have a/c on. That and the abs light has been randomly popping on and off idk why.

I'd sell it for $2500 after the 24th, that's when I get the Sonic. Only thing is Drew wants the Apexi so you'll have to fight to the death for it . No but really it's a decent car if anyone knows someone looking for one besides Aku. It would be worth more but the body is beat, lots of dents.

Also, why are you guys scared of messing up your d23s? Every time I ride with jake he beats the crap out of his, and drew beat on it before him. It's got a butt ton of miles and still runs good, lol.
