I had a SPI in my 1999 Escort. Alsmost 200K miles and it still ran like a top .... DAMN good engine! I once got 44 MPG driving down to Corpus Christi from Houston, no lie!! [ohcrap]

I know it wasn't a Focus but still an SPI. LOL

Nope, it was bone stock, didn't see any use in modding it really.

LOL You would not want to race my friends 90's MR2, he got the Japanese spec turbo engine pushing 17psi. I thinks its around 230 whp, of corse he beats my ass all the time. Anyway the MR2 Spyders have around 130hp and weigh almost nothing compared to the the focus, not to mention mid engine RWD Yummmm.

It was strange, I genuinly freaked out when I filled back up in corpus and it only took about 5 1/2 gallons to fill back up (I had driven a little over 240 miles). That was the one and only time it got mileage that good, the rest of the time I got about 36 to 38 MPG on the highway at 65 to 70 MPH. Still pisses me off it got wrecked, otherwise I would still be driving it today! lol

Yeh the guy I race didnt know how to drive at all. your friend sound like he has a real nice project going on. As long as I can put up a fight with a civic I'll be happy with my SPI

Is it just me or is the site going screwy?

I belive I wrote something (a shorter term for a word) but my post was edited I think.

I'm confused.

It seems like it's running slower. Sometimes I have to click a link twice to get it going. If I leave it sitting too long, it just freezes up.

Yea I would recognise that, its just that my post was edited.

I dont mind at all, I just want to make sure I am not going insane and doing stuff and not remembering it. I did that while driving before, I drove about a mile up the road and dont remember passing the usual landmarks.

It scared the shit out of me.
