Hey all! Been awhile and I just got bored and stopped by. How's the turbo'd foci coming along. If I recall we only had a couple? Are the duratec turbos good to go yet? Kinda miss the old focus days, EVERYONE wanting to race you just because you have a 4 cyl. with an exhaust. The only challenges I get now are mustangs, s2000s, all beamers driven by age 29 and below and other odds and ends. Car is still stock, saving to move to a very nice house out in the middle of nowhere with my buddy and his Lexus IS300, which is a very nice car. I've got it tinted, s2000 antenna on it, front plate removed and going to debadge and rebadge with "Fairlady Z" which is the japanese calling of the 350Z (long story).

Big plans, big plans! Well after payday I'm hoping to find an open night a PIR and run her since shes got 6500 miles on her. Taken her to 135mph, shifted into 6th at 127mph [:D] supposably maxes out at 156 or 157 stock but I can't find a road stable enough!

Hope to see you guys around, honk if you see me!!!!

very nice there paul, I bet that much power in the sedan kicks major ass! Would that be the FS or the F2? I'm assuming the FS stage 1 w/o the intercooler? Did you get a LSD to accomidate the new power? I know I'm lacking the LSD, so much wheelspin! Keep up the good work man!

Definatly let ya'll know. Are there any other 1/4 mile tracks? I'd be willing to make a trip on a weekend since the weather is beginning to get BEAUTIFUL!

You take your car to the strip yet paul? I'm a little more fond of the duratecs...just cause I owned one =) Maybe we could do some side by side action in there! I've got a friend of a friend who wants to race me with his turboed crx, I don't know if I want him to blow another moter in anoter crx though lol.

Whos got the baddest looking foci now?

Once im done with my car we will have to meet up at the track... it should be interesting to see what kind of numbers we both put down.

Rikuum's car was crazy before, I can't wait to see it now. it's what, almost double the horsepower, it's gonna be awesome to see that thing at PIR. I'm guessing his first couple runs are going to be in the mid to low 11's area. 10's are definately reachable.

What part of salem you in Rikuum? I'm usually cruising lancaster and downtown with my buddy on the weekends, If you see me throw me a [wave] and a [headbang].

What you gonna be running on the tracks, solo or whatever? I think I may get me a used focus and have some fun with it, I grew fond of the duratec but with the numbers you'll be putting up with the zetec I think I could show the zetec some love[:D]
