What to do with $300

OK I wanted to get strut tower braces or a Iceman intake system or a cam. or some thing of that nature. I don't know what to get first and its like being in a damn candy store it all looks good you know. I don't care if it's several items or just one. I can't just pick one so I'll leave up to you guys. Thanks

I did a google search on Mercy Intake and found nothing of the kind for a SVTF. Much less have I ever heard of one.

Anyway, I dont know what mods you may or may not have already, so just correct me if I've mention one.

Lets see, ORP would be good. I know that FocusSport UDP if they still have the free shipping will be exact $109.95. <--- Good mod with some gain to have.

Steeda Intake $149.95, Screamon Demon Coil and Wires, run about $130 to $140, depending upon where you get them at.

You know, better yet go here: http://www.myfordfocus.com/performance.htm That is if you like.

Most of my parts have come from Ray Dixon at www.myFordPerformance.com Great guy to deal with and he will price match if you find it cheaper some place else.

Keep us updated on what you decide to go with.

well what do u wanna do with yoru car? if u plan on runnign it on tracks and auto-x's then go with front and rear strut tower braces( espcially rear u will notice a huge differnce imn handling). i would get those from focus sport best quality and they r only place with rear one wich is the most important. on the same note if u r goign for better handlign add a rear sway bar. with those 3 mods your car will corner liek a beast.

if uw ant just more power i woudl go with orp( if u dotn mind beign illegal and waitinf 2-3 weeks for them to coem otu with new one) and aem cai. thats a little over 300 but its well worth the money. dont go with short ram intake. u wont get the coll air u get from a cai and the great sound your engine makes with it

Get an ORP and a Steeda short throw or you could get a Steeda Intake and a Strut Brace

The Steeda is a much better intake I think than the AEM CAI. It also has a much better price range. I've run both and believe me when I say, I've notice no difference what so ever between the two. Plus Steeda has been dyno proven to provide more HP and TQ than the AEM CAI. But again I have notice no change.

I also agree with the FocusSport front and rear strut braces, good quality products for a small price.

do not get a steeda short thrwo shifter!! if u shift properly there is hardly any differnce between the two. its a watse of moeny. if u just want a shorter length shifter take the nob off cut ti and replace the nob simple and free

the reasont he steda intake is dynoed to have 7 hp or so is cause they had the hood open when they dynoed. they also ahs a fan blowing ont he intake. uin mornal conditions u haver the hood closed and no fan so its gonan be suckign up warm air wich eaquals less hp. so unless u drive with your hood open get a aem cai the sound aloen is worht the extra 30 bucks
