I went a whole year without AC. The only reason I went and got it charged was because I was taking a 6 hour drive with my wife. If I was going by myself or with another dude I would have just rolled the windows down.

The past week has been me buying stuff. It started as new wheels (MOMO Corse RPM, which I LOVE), then like always it progressed to replacement parts because stuff breaks when it has 206k miles on it.

I also removed bits from my coilovers in the quest for moar low (ksports for whatever reason have the perch collar and then 2 locking collars)

While I am sad that you weren't able to make it down over the weekend, I and quite pleased with the progress you made while we were all playing, lol. I was iffy on those wheels at first but now that I've seen them on a Focus I like them. They are definitely classy, and from some angles remind me just a LITTLE of the stock snowflake wheels you had.

I also don't have a build thread because there really is noting more I plan/want to do to the car.

My goals from year ago were:

Euro bumpers
Recaros
Coilovers
Intake
Exhaust
MACHs/ST170s

I've reached (and exceeded) that list more than once now Laughing (coilovers 3 times, Euro bumpers -- one rear and two fronts, Intake twice -- CAI and SRI, headlights I've change 12 times)

Of course I'd love boost, but that would be at least 2 years (and $5k+) out...no sense in making a build thread for that right now. Also, if you'v noticed my "style" is mostly to just do it then post pictures afterward. More recently I've been sticking with one thread at a time for longer, but I still enjoy making fresh threads.


To turbo my car, it needs a lot of work. Realistically:

Turbo kit -- I'd go with Top speed -- probably $4k
Rebuilt engine -- rods, pistons, headwork -- at least $1.5-2k
Trans work -- clutch & flywheel ($1k-ish), limited slip ($1200), maybe even a newer trans (who knows how much that will cost)

Then other "little" stuff ... like I will undoubtedly will need a new fuel pump at the veryt minimum. A lot of little stuff with 250k on it will need to be replaced

And of course tuning. That will be however much Fernando charges, because I wouldn't trust my car with anybod else. If the man could hear Chris's oil pump break in the middle of a dyno pull and call it quits and be right, I DEFINITELY only want him touching my car.



Really the only thing I want is wheels, but those will be a stroke of luck if they happen. There's no way I can/will pay full new price for wheels, so it's not like I can plan for that. I just need to keep money in my bank account.

That can be a jaded number, for example, Cobra Reps = +10 Scene Points. And in the occasional very rare case on forums not to be mentioned, EAP's get you +1000 Scene Points and Multiplied Double if combo'd with an FRPP Drop
