Nice looking car that you got there.
I'm sure if you look through the forums that you will find what you need to know about modifications.
Or just PM someone that looks helpful.
Happy motoring!

Yeah, the zetec engine is a fun one. Lot's of stuff for it. And I'd say go with the magnaflow, I love mine.

its easy to make the difference between American focus who have a 16 valve(zetec) and the 8 valve(SPI or Split Port Injection)

16 valve Focus: ZX3, ZX5, ZTS(sedan), ZTW(wagon), SE Sport (Sedan)
16 valve Focus SVT: ZX3 SVT, ZX5 SVT
8 valve Focus: LX sedan, SE sedan, SE wagon

the Hatchback version cant be offert with the 8 valve engine.

the Zetec is a good engine, the only way to broke it is to never make maintenance on it, i know a old guy driving is focus around 130,000km at the odometer without any maintenance on it before the engine broke...

i know another guy, who is always at the race track, he have around 150,000km at the odometer with a lot of engine mods, and the engine/tranny still in very good shape...

this engine is tough, believe me[;)]

Congrats! and you definately picked the right site if you want to know about your car !! If you can make it fit your budget go Borla- alittle over 4 bills.
