Lightbulb any suggestions for an 03 SE sedan?

howdy. i'm relatively new to the focus world (4 months or so)...and i've been used to a Chevy Lumina. i'm just curious if anyone can give me any kind of engine mod suggestions for an automatic (can you believe there wasn't a manual with power windows n locks in all of phoenix?)? i've looked around a bit at focusperformance.com and focussport.com...and a few other places...but i'm not real sure how to go about this. i'm just wanderin if you guys could lend me a hand in modding the engine and some decent exhaust systems and maybe even some performance chips n such. any info basically. since most of you seem to know a hell of a lot about this nice little car =). it'd be greatly appreciated! thanks a bunch!

i think the se comes with the zetec, not the spi

if you have a warranty, beware, i think everything mentioned by crakrazy will void your warranty.

SE's can have either the zetec or the spi.
for the first mod i would go with a suspension mod. it makes the car feel a WHOLE lot better. but as far as the engine goes carkrazy pretty much summed up the basics
