A lot of people like the Mach 1 Mustang lip for the Focus. I don't know if it provides downforce anywhere this side of 100mph, but it looks good..

the only place you would need downforce is on a track, the only place I know that sells a quality wing is Ford racing and its only for the hatchback! check out their old catalogs

I want downforce so I could get more WHP without modding up the engine. I plan on racing it a little bit plus dad will let me do it to my car.

^^Is that a joke? If not.. Downforce has nothing to do with WHP.. It has to do with handleing

Come on guys, don't need to make FF look bad. You really don't need the front lip for downforce....because it does nothing for downforce, mainly just looks. But if you really want one, I'd try looking at the BST forum. I've seen alot of lips on there for sale.

laugh all you want. it does add more downforce, giving more power to the wheels. wont be able to on a dyno but it does add more whp. may not be a lot but it will be more than what i already had. if you dont like it then dont post. simple as that.

man up and go get a real car [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]s. you people give me more (edited) about my car than anyone i know. to the people that help me out. thanks. to all the others.

Just to clear it up, it doesn't give you horsepower, it just adds more normal force to give you better traction... and unless you can already chirp your tires at 100mph it's not going to help you much. The real benefit to be gained is handling, but again that is minuscule really, unless you have a full kit and splitter and something like a WRC wing.

Just buy one that looks good. Wings West has a good urethane one (the kit on my car) or you could buy the Mach 1 lip if you want more of an OEM look. There's a few more like Kaminari and Steeda I think...

wow, no wonder why this kid left FF. Being 18, he probably doesn't know allot about cars, and you guys are slamming him and asking if he is retarded? classy guys.

It seems there are only a couple of people on this thread that actually wanted to help the kid, and the rest are teasing him.

You people need to stop acting like a bunch of damn ricers. "ZOMG I can't believe he was mis-informed, let teh flame commence!"

Rep to Dcl for actually being helpful.

This going to get out of hand. Dean you should probably lock this up.

You are always welcomed back if you ever decide to and don't let a couple of punks turn you away from here. FF is better than that.

I can understand why the guy is pissed.
