ok, this is wierd, but i thought the spi was a 2.0 like the zetec. well, maybe its just me.
anyways, looks like nothing more than appearance stuff to me.
wow, i just noticed a cool upgrade they did! relocated the gas pedal to the cup holder. LOL[8]

something seems a little fishy to me...

at one point it says this:
Engine: 4 CYLINDERS 2.2 Liters
but later (under the pic of the engine) it says this:
Unmolested 4 cyl. with all factory hardware other than cold intake
i dont know everything about engines, but how do you bore out a 2.0L to a 2.2 without molesting the engine and on all factory hardware...?

and why is there so much APC (all plastic crap) on the car?

We build custom Focus for Ford dealers. Mostly cosmetics because of warranty issues. Gene Latta Ford is one of our dealers. Most cars have a body kit and wing. Apex springs (early cars had eibach), 17" wheels and a sticker package. Some of there cars also had tail lights, bumper lights, Hella projector lights, gauge faces, and catbacks.
