What are the OT domestic car-gods opinions on the Ford Focus? I have a 2001 ZX3 with I/H/E, and I'm getting a transaxle rebuilt as we speak with shorter gears and a Torsen ATB differential. It's relatively fast for a girl/old lady car, and my inexperienced feet pedaled it to a [email protected] MPH last summer at the strip. There are tuners out there getting upwards of 300HP out of the stock 2.0L Zetec, and the 2.3L Duratec in the 2005 and newer models shows even more promise as a tuning platform. I'm pretty sure what the response is going to be in a forum called "American Muscle", but I was just curious to see if anyone actually respects the modern FWD vehicles.
