    you may wanna try over at focusfanatics.com or focaljet.com for something like that. i own a Focus and i dont think they will fit. why not order the 2.3L DOHC race motor from Ford MotorSports? or hell, turbo the 2.0L DOHC in it

    go to your local Ford dealership and pick up their Ford Motorsports catalogue. its only like $5 but it has a whole section for the Focus including engines, suspension and body components in there. it will give you a good idea of stuff thats available for the Focus.

    For rallying the best mod to any car is driver with seat time. In an amateur rally that I entered the number one time was a 2.2 liter impreza (those things are painfully slow) and manage to pull exact same lap times. It beat out STi's, WRX's, Evo's, ect.

    $9k is cheap. Try the Ecotec with a Cosworth head.

    Yeah, see "Turbomirage beats cars with twice the hp at autocross"

    Seat time is always key.
