Got my Focus back from the performance shop today
The Focus gave them trouble even when I was leaving, the Steeda fuel rail was leaking.


The young guy was giving me crap becuase he had to fix the fuel rail, like get a real car get an XR5 or St225 Focus.
I said I don't think so, Then I said it's going to over 700Whp like the Focus in the U.S, that's going to cost $100,000 and I said no it won't

I couldn't get an dyno pull so I'll have to wait a few weeks but, the wheels spin alot more then what they use too...LOL
The throttle cable has to be fix becuase theres no in bewteen, gotta tape it to get it to move an little bit but, you put your foot down little bit more wants to take off and rev hard and now my auto gear box is playing up going clank into gear but there's no engine warning light on????

I'll get better video soon

looks good, but the location of your cone filter makes me think you would be a lot of heat soak from the engine

I just told them where ever the best spot to get more air so they put it there, I could do an CAI setup and have the pod go down near the bumper/ tranny so it's away from the header.
So... how much power are you making?
I didn't ge an dyno pull
It's got more pick up then having an full exhaut system on there.

Now I have an bigger problem.
When the auto is changing gear it making an clank sound and it wasn't doing this before it went into the shop
When I back off from the throttle is clank into gear and it feel like its only idle
After it goes 1,2 in 3 gear its revving atb 6g and not changing gear so when I back off it clanks into gear and it feels like it only idling????

ooohhh...doesnt sound good. my friends honda sounded like that when the tranny took a BIG dump on him. good luck with that, mate!!
I spoke to someone who gave me a rough shipping of $180-200 from me to you. like I said, nothing concrete until it is all boxed up, though. u know?

I just don't understand why it's doing that when before it went into the performance shop it was working just fine
Yup I know man
Do you own an set of FR headlights? if so how about a trade for my Euro stock head lights????

P.S. Should have my WRC roof scoop here within the next few weeks

Why do you have the breather hose from the intake not going to the head and the one coming from the head going into that little filter?

hmm so your 4th gear doesnt work>?
get your check engine light looked
i blew a tranny solenoid a which is 3rd gear into 4th then it just revs like in neutral till you let off gas it can happen anytime it wants its not something that is due to driver/mechanic Error (real cheap to replace by yourself)
pm me if you throw a Solenoid a malfunction i can help you

All I need is to move the pod to the back of the head light, Something like Steeda or Mustang 90mm cold air intake.

That little filter is an oil breather and the blue hose from the air intake is going into the top of the FR manifold for the idel controller.

stock auto trannys are not made to do sick ass burn outs
I'm not planning to do any burn outs, tyres arent cheap.
