I can tell you that an intake, UDP, and a tune are going to make a very noticeable difference when combined. You will notice a little gain with just an intake and I believe it is good for around 5 HP, a UDP is a noticeable improvement and is good for 3 to 4 HP and the tune will make the most noticable difference of all and is good for around 20HP and 20 TQ in the midrange (which is where it helps the most).

The STS and lower mount are pretty much must have mods that make shifting more "crisp" and precise and the mount compliments the STS a great deal. I don't have comments to offer on the rest as I do not have them, but I will say that a ORP is illegal and is a federal offence which will result in hefty fines if you are caught. Hope this helps.

BTW, I don't think cams are available for the SVTF yet, but I believe Tom is working on some and I believe someone else is too, parhaps someone can chim in with an update? I would be interested in a set myself.

why don't you get a high flow cat instead of an ORP? that orp is bad for the environment plus it stinks...have you ever smelled a car with it on?

yeah that seems like a good list to me .. i'd get the clutch and flywheel done first then move on to other parts... as u might have already known the clutch and flywheel are u might say the "weakest parts" on the car in my opinion. Change those out first and the rest ur good to go . with nitrous i'd be careful don't think it be that good of an idea to run nitrous on a stock engine. btw i was under the impression that there were cams out there for the focus i guess i could be wrong about that one.
