OBX header and a tune will give you a healthy gain

What's your budget? Also, what aspect of your car is most important (speed, handling, etc.)?

I believe that the best mod you can do is new tires...and if you can afford a new wheel/tire setup that's the way to go. Make sure the tires are sticky and the wheels are light! I see a lot of people putting SVT wheels on their Foci which confuses me because they are 20+ pounds. A good set of lightweight 15- or 16-inch wheels and some nice tires will do wonders.

Also, the SVT suspension kit can be had for about $250 + shipping.

I don't know about your car, but mine has NO trouble getting up to speed. At 3000 on the ramp in second, it's an absolute bear. I'm doing 60 before I merge. My previous car (check my signin) was an AWD turbo, stated 205hp, and under that situation, the focus would stay with it with no trouble

^^^ I don't know what you had before, or what Mod's you have on your Foci.
