SVT focus :-)

So thinking about picking one up as a DD/ winter beater and start rebuilding my mustang motor to what I want so I can have a nice Sunday racer. What do you guys think?

ive heard good and bad bout them. Most say the gas mileage is not what it should be. I have no personal input into that but you can research it. They are also under powered but.... for just a DD they would be just fine. Consider sonic blue as a color!

As long as you are able to do regular maintenance you'll be fine. Change the timing belt immediately after purchase and every 50k after that.

You can expect 25-30 mpg depending on your driving style.

O, and I say comp orange
