Bet R3d trumps us all...

My mod list is smaller but I cry when I add it all up. I sure do grin from ear to ear when the car is kicking sideways into 3rd gear and leaving 10ft patches of rubber on the 2nd gear shift while Im flippin the bird to the vette behind me

I cry when I see lists like this and realize I will have to wait 5-6 more years before I will be able to have one that has any length to it. All I can really do now is try to keep it looking nice.

Mine now,

Then you need to get some spray so you can do it to Z06 owners too.

My mod list wouldn't be very long either. I have more stuff that is one-off, but not very many mods in general. Hopefully this summer I can work full-time and rake in some dough to spend if everything gets settled.

The focus has an SCT tuner and a borla exhaust system

the only thing I did was the tuner and that came from the mustang

I guess new plug wires count too

I will probably be getting an ORP and a email tune from turbo tom on focus fanatics in the near future

Murderin' everything on the street! Paint the truck red so when you run people over, the blood will match!



Hell, if we're naming aftermarket parts on cars, my '93 has more **** replaced on it than my '05 does. I've got an assload of money in that bitch, too... just to keep it in good running order.

Exactly. You need a HE at the least, and then run alcohol when you're at the track.

I was about to say, WTF? Alcohol on a DD?

Yea, I didn't just toss a 4.3 and some nitrous in and say "alright time to go' it was alot of ****..alot of stuff I'm sure I left out.. springs/bearings/head studs/brakes/gaskets etc...

I didn't have much left that I wanted to do, just put a K member on, fix the transmission, retune, lighter wheels..


I'm pretty sure my MPH would've picked up some, and I may have been able to take the car into the 11s with a better tune and a 150 shot..

If I had the car even longer I would've been looking at a direct port setup and a windstar intake and really seen what I could **** up..
