Pull out all the interior except that drivers seat. It will improve acceleration, braking, and handling for free.

UDP for around 100
Cheap intakes can be around 100 too.
Some performance chips can be acquired for around 200
Progress rear sway bar helps out nicely, and is a little over 100

some dont consider it a mod but i would get a good system.
I did have a good system but it got stolen out of my taurus when it was at the wrecking yard the bastards stole it before I could get over there and take it out! but the good news is that they said they would pay for it! so I get a check for $1100!

yeah I probably just end up doing what you said Egz! there is a shop in town that does focus stuff so it is even cheaper because I don't have to pay shipping

get a K&N panel filter for $30...don't waste your money on a $100 cheap ebay intake! Then remove the plastic shield between the upper grill and the radiator.

are you talking about removing the thing that is around the hood latch???
I already did that cause I did not see the reason for the little wall that was blocking air from the air snorkel

I put in the filter without any other mods, so I didn't notice much of a difference, but I know it's better than stock, probably comparable to other more expensive total intake systems, and the best thing is it's only $30 (and if you get the recharge kit $10-$15, you never need to buy another air filter again).
Yes, you already removed the piece I was talking about...you could also do the "airbox resonator removal" mod on myfordfocus.com (go to the how-to library). It's unknown if this improves anything other than the sound of the car...kinda sounds like a short-ram intake...it's at least a cheap mod that gets your hands under the hood and you can't hurt the car doing this one...even if you break the resonator!! (what'll that do to your resale if you break it??? I dunno, but it won't hurt the car...lol)[thumb]
