The rally season is over. Reprep for next year includes installing a mildly built 2.5 dtec, wilwood front calipers, remoting the air filter into the cab, cuting out the rear shock towers and welding in bigger boxes to accommodate the coil overs, installing rear control arms that are double heim jointed.

Pulled the 2.0 out, in the process of prepping a 2.3 for a spare motor. Also trading out the cams and spring to put in the 2.5.

Currently catalog searching, but most likely a Wildwood dynalite pro, they share the same spacing and rotors at the 05 and newer focus knuckles

Ordered up a Wilwood 4 piston fixed caliper to test fit, only $129 cheaper than rebuilt caliper and core at the local auto store.

I made my own kit for the Billet Radial Mount Dynapro. It is pretty easy.

Still plugging along. Made the front bumper support removable. Next up is reworking the power steering hose in a/n hose, got the kit from Alex. Also just bought a Aem standalone from a forum member

This is sounding awesome. I built a 2003 2.3 PZEV stage rally car and I'm wanting to follow some of the same upgrade paths you are. I currently already have the suspension sorted with custom bilstein coilovers (the rear towers were cut out like you were talking about). I'm interested in what youre doing with the wilwood calipers. Which ones did you specifically get? Are you changing out the brake master cylinder with this?
