    Work so far

    well, if you hadn't guessed yet, 'tis me, the roob, back to say hello but shsssshhhh - keep it quiet

    work done so far on the focus:

    5 x goodyear 195x55 r15 eagle F1's (5 because i hit a brick on the m1 2 days after i had the first 4 fitted doing... let's just say it wasn't strictly a legal speed) £280

    1 x 195 x 15 alloy (see above brick incident) £110

    16-groove brake discs made by the people who supply black diamond - so basically black diamond discs, just without the coating (which rubs off anyway) with ferodo pads £105

    E-Tech strut brace for some stiff chassis loving £80

    Spax sports suspension kit springs and shocks £330

    total - £905

    next on the shopping list... FINISHED!!!

    have kinda had a re-think on the engine work - what's the point adding only 65bhp?

    so stage 1 of the engine work...
    zetec 2.0 bored to 2.1, low compression pistons, ERST manifold and turbo running low boost, full ECU work, intercooler, looking for about 300bhp

    stage 2...
    hybrid turbo to give full boost with as little lag as possible, and keep boost to 7200rpm

    did someone say fast? 8D

    so my car can now stop well, soon will handle better than it already does, then the fun really begins

    Sprocks - have i missed anything out?
