dude honestly why a focus? why not a used honda hatch or something. id rather see someone in a honda than a focus. at least the honda has way more reliability, and when you get bored with getting beat by semis, you can do a little homework, drop in a h22 or the proven time and again b series swap, run a wee bit o' nitrous
and run mid to low 13's and possibly 12's with slicks. all you can do for a focus is the APC/AEM intake and some 600$ catback and prolly some crappy chip and itll all add like 10hp and you just dumped a grand into the motor. even though i hate hondas(most of them) i know a civic is much better than a focus, in terms of reliability, potential, and performance.
even the dam sc focus only ran mid 14's at the track. and that thing costs like 25k. coulda got a srt4 and ran mid 12's for that much.
