disciplerocks's Ford Focus "build" thread
Ok so I have been posting some stuff in another thread, but I decided to make its own thread. I have done a lot in the past couple weeks so I figured I'd get you all caught up on what I have done. This is going to be an ongoing thread as I add stuff.

Other thread:

Lets start with a little history. Its an 04 Focus ZX3. Purchased in June 08.

When I first got it.

After a few months and a couple mods. Rims, cold air intake, strut tower bar, stiffer tranny mount, and blue interior lights.

Then a drop and tinted tail (which have been removed) and a catback.

And then.............

Here is my car at "Focus in the Field" in Coldwater, MI August of last year. 6th car down.

And a meet last week in Louisville, KY. 5th one down.

Here is the most recent updates.

Got some new rims from John (railman).

And here is what I am currently working on. Going to try to push 15 psi now. In order to do this I got new 42# injectors, an IAT from a Lightning for more accurate intake temps, 5.7" crank pulley, and what was supposed to be a 2.3" supercharger pulley.

Since I am going to be pushing the sc pretty hard, I decided to change the oil in it.

Now as of right now I have the larger crank pulley on and pushing about 12 psi. The sc pulley ended up being the wrong size, so I am working on getting something worked out on that. I went to the u-pull and bought a core alt from them for $7. The pulley on it is the exact size I need. Now I am going to take it to work and have the keyway machined.

Like I said I will keep adding to this as things happen. I am not in any hurry. I have basically installed things as they come available. I still have stage 1 cams, forged internals, and an aluminum flywheel that have yet to be installed.

Comments always welcome.

I like that car. I would drive that since it looks stock for the most part.

i am jealous. any idea what kind of torque and hp its making with the sc?

Once I get the new stuff installed, I'll be pushing about 15 psi. Have to get it re-tuned then I'll hit the dyno. Probably not going to be pushing more than 13 psi until I get my forged rods and pistons installed. I have no idea what I'll be pushing then. Pretty sure I am at 190-210hp right now though.

Still working on getting the pulley machined at work. They have been too busy to work on my stuff lol. I did pick these up today for a killer price. Should sit me 0.75" to 1" lower than my Eibachs.
