I have a 2003 LX sedan. SPI 2.0, ATX. No power anything. Literally, the only option my car came with was the ATX. The one option I didn't want. But, being poor, I bought what I can afford.

dont worry man, your not the only one with an spi. i got an auto lx sedan as well. right now its stock, but my first plans for it is to make it breathe better. you know, intake manifold, tb, intake system, street headers, high flow cat, flex pipe, cat back. and anything added after that would compliment the car nicely.

The main difference is the Zetec has twice as many valves and two overhead cams. The displacement is the same (2.0 liters). The extra valves and cam make the Zetec quicker on the uptake.

dank said:
spi= split port injection, right?
what does that mean
I forgot what it meant...so here ya go:

Split-port Induction (SPI)

Most split-port induction systems have a dual-runner engine intake design promoting high-volume/high-velocity airflow to increase engine performance. The dual-runner design features long, small-diameter runners tuned for low engine rpm torque and short, large-diameter runners tuned for high rpm horsepower Runner usage is controlled by the electronic engine controls and integral throttle- body valves The Focus and Escort 2.0L I-4 engine uses a cylinder head with two runners per cylinder. These runners carry the air charge to the intake side of the combustion chamber. At lower engine speeds, the air charge is directed through a narrow pathway that results in a higher air velocity, quickening engine response. As engine speed increases above 3000 rpm, the second path works to further enhance engine power and operating efficiency
Got this from Ford Glossary

new focus

I'm picking up our new 2000 Focus SE Tuesday. Its nice, cheap on gas and loaded. I would like to mod it a bit, but I don't have any delusions that it will ever keep up with my 63 Merc. I'm thinking of more stlye than anything, maybe a body kit and some rims.......If my wife will let me touch her car....LOL[:D]
