It wasn't shifter cables you were using those fingers on lol

And you don't have to sell svt for air..it's pricey but it's not THAT expensive. It was on a blue svt before I got it and it worked flawlessly. Got it pretty low but still driveable completely aired out. I should be more specific in telling you I have the bags. I sold the tank already and the compressor so you'd need those, some bushings/nuts/bolts/washers, air line, valves, switches and a box. The most expensive thing in all that would be the valves. At the most you ever need it'd be less than $200 for those. You can find used compressors cheap if you know where to look

His point is as follows:

SVT>any other focus

Any other argument is invalid.

:D

Love joo

The cars have two different motors. Ones made to be reved and driven in the high rpms.

The St makes better power down low torque wise.

You can't really compare the two.

At least one can take turns hard without blowing up ;)

Legit, not hacked together air ride is not inexpensive. You're looking at the minimum of like $3,000 for a proper setup.
