    Well, as someof you might know, my girlfriend and I had a boy ten months ago. So, it was time to uograde from that little old Nissan pickup and get something a little more suitable for the family. Here's what I found:

    It is a 2003 Focus SVT. I absolutely LOVE this little car. It has some basic things done to it: SFWerks Exhaust, SFWerks short ram intake, SFWerks Stage 2 throttle body, SFWerks stage 2 motor mounts. All in all, I am VERY happy with it. It has been well taken care of, and it shows. The paint is a 10/10 with NO rust, blemishes in paint, nothing. The interior is also perfect with no rips/tears/fading in the leather/cloth. Heated sets for the winter, and the perfect amount of room for Sawyer in the back. Does anyone else have one of these or previously owned one? What really brings these cars alive without having to go FI?

    It really is a great little car. I just wish I had a way of making it a little quicker without adding boost to the equation.

    Nice SVT! There is really nothing that you can do to make it faster without forced induction. The SVT team squeezed every ounce of power that they could out of the Zetec engine so any other aftermarket bolt-ons will hurt your performance. The bolt-ons you have are fine, I guess about the only other thing you could do is replace your cat with an ORP.
