Zaki God, are you sure thats your car? because if it is... its completely awesome! i have always been a fan of those cars... so fast, streamlined design... only thing is, at 5-10 miles per gallon, they are some of the most un-economical consumer cars on the market.

I realize 3-4 grand is a lot, but the things only cost like $13K brand new to begin with, so $17,000 car that spanks Mustang GTs? Yes, please.
If your going to to that, you could just get an SRT-4 or something. How much are the Focus motors making on stock internals boosted?

Depends. Stock standard Zetec with 5-speed can easily hit around 210whp on 9-10 psi. Stock SVT Zetec motors will go as far as money will take you pretty much, there was a guy who was around 350whp at 21 psi on a street driven SVT Focus w/ stock internals. That thing was a monster.

The newer ones use the Duratec motors and if I'm not mistaken, those usually get around 230whp on 12 psi. It's also worth noting that they are fairly light at around 2500 lbs.

Lol, I don't think it's really his. Maybe it's what he wishes to have. I want something practical. Like the 2008 IS-F!!!!

Raising performance to a whole new level. The IS-F...

Its about the same for the Neon motor, the breaking point is usually around ~250 hp.

That SVT is sounds pretty crazy though, there aren't too many 4 cylinder motors you can take that high on stock internals.

Stupid Photobucket site maintenance, I'll watch it later. But that is the coolest Focus I have seen so far, I like how it has a lot of potential on the stock block, wonder what it could do fully built.
