Welcome to the Forum [wave]

My suggestion would be to look around some the galleries and check out a few of the build threads to see what other people have done to their cars.

I've done way to many things to both my cars to list so here's a link to what I've done over the past few years: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=270140

Welcome to FF. I'd do a timing belt & the maintence= plugs,wires, fuel filter, etc 1st. Add a t/b & tune next. Add cfm tubular fca's, rear toe-links, eibach sportline system, Baer bbk, Steeda's sts, orp & a stealth muffler, add a torsen diff.

appreciate the replies. im sure there has been several of these posts in the past. hopin to collect some knowledge from this site! im really enjoying the hatch world, i used to own a lt1 trans am, but i figure for the handling and the ability to hit 300+ hp, this is even better

I'd do the timing belt. Those t/a's are cool cars. I love the '74 SD's.

my advice to you would be, (after changing out the belt)

1, toms tune,
2, aem wideband air fuel gauge, so tom can really fine tune you
3, throttle body upgrade, (67mm cfm one
4, 180 degrees thermostat,
5, cfm race cat, (keep standard exhaust with lunch box resonator delete with an inward rolled tipp, unless you go for a 3inch exhaust system its not worth it,)
6. clutch masters clutch, and aluminium light weight flywheel,
7. 10mm ht leads
8. sports suspension
9. motorcraft copper plugs gaped at 0.05
10. get tom to bring all the mods together in a final tune,

thats my exact setup

my next mod will be a short throw shifter, then im gonna just enjoy her

hope this helps
