Thanks Tundrafoci!

Will they still be able to help if I can't get into my old email? Maybe there's a way to change the email address on file? Who should I contact? I'm not familiar with who the admins are... Do I PM them?

Thanks

Don is going to be gone for a while. Sailor and Bringler26 will be your best bet.

Hey everyone!

This was originally my build thread three years ago. I've been forced to create a new account as I no longer have access to the old email the previous account was under. A lot has changed in three years, but its sad to say that my focus is largely the same car still. I have since added a Fiesta ST to my garage though! And since the ST is the new daily driver, it's time to get back into the turbo build on the Focus!

I plan on revamping the old turbo kit, with parts sourced from a mazdaspeed 3 just like originally planned. Later on I may end up doing an actual "MAZDASPEED Conversion" like the original title stated. I've been researching the components, and the rear suspension on the speed 3 is the same, so all that will bolt right up, and it has huge discs. The front may not be quite as straight forward, but the subframes look largely the same dimensions, so it may be a direct swap. If I'm able to find a cheap speed 3 I am willing to test this theory! If the subframe fits, I'll get a donor car and swap everything over. Essentially it would end up a mazdaspeed 3 in a focus body, and lose about 700lbs!

Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know I'll be reviving this build! I have a few other projects going on at the moment, so I'll get to this one as I can. I'll post up some pictures later.

Bringing the Project back!

Alright, heres the pictures I promised!



So the Focus was involved in a little fender bender a few months back... I got it back together and up and running though! The damage doesn't look too bad here, but...



Yeah, It got the crash bar pretty good... Took out the ac condenser and the radiator. I was lucky it didn't get the intake manifold! Missed it by a few millimeters.



So I hooked the front of the focus to my jeep and gave it a big pull to straighten the crash bar so I could get the old broken junk out.



I got everything straightened up and ordered new parts. Here she sits mostly assembled.



Then I took her for a test run, and everything is great! Still drives straight as an arrow. The stock fiesta st wheels look pretty nice too.



And speaking of the fiesta, here is the new daily! Let the focus build begin!



And last but not least, Here she sits now! I've driven her to work a few times the last few days. Time to go turbo, and I have a few other fun things in mind!

Alright, the turbocharger for build version 2.0 should be here today! I placed an order for a downpipe today, and expect that early next week. The project is getting a slight hold because the battery in the car died unexpectedly, so I need to get that replaced. Stay tuned for boost coming soon!
