Maybe he wants both?

I just talked to him last night about it, maybe it's just easier for him to get my Apexi. I start a week long Sonic test drive on the 24th so I won't be driving my Focus and he'll have time to get it taken off and replaced.

I don't doubt he'd want both, but idk I didn't ask him.

For the WRX, roughly around $200, and just an exterior on the focus, roughly $150.

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.
Chaz the SVT doesn't make crap with bolt ons. E's car was making 180whp, no Cossin IM, and not tuned for the cams. 2.3s can make 200whp, and that makes for a seriously quick DD car. His car was quicker than Ed's with the JRSC from what I've been told.

Lol that's silly. He has the loud exhaust that we thought was a thermal.

My svt is fast enough. Its a nice clean car. I don't care if I'm fast, even though its fun. It keeps me from being dumb.

I would like a topspeed manifold and new tune. Which should put me at 160+ a few at the wheels.

Topspeed svt with exhaust, stock header and cat, with their manifold was 151 HP 126 ish tq. Vs 140 and 121 tq before manifold.

Being as I have no cat, I should be at least 160, since orp is good for 8-9 hp

Have you heard the apexi?!

a focus with an apexi sounds better than almost any other 4cylinder car with an exhaust except for maybe a subaru.

Hell I'd buy it back from mike to put on my moms focus just to hear it again lol

We can absolutely make the drive out there, but for travel over 20 miles round trip, we charge $.50 a mile for the entire drive. But, cars can certanily be dropped off as well. Whichever is easier.
