Default My Focus SW

Hi guys!!!
My name its Pedro and i live in Portugal... the stupidest country there is if you wanna tune up your car.... almost everything its ilegal here .

This my car :

It's lowered 6cm, 17" MomoCorse Wheels, 205/40 tires, Brembo Max Disc brakes, tinted windows, Headlights with angel eye and Xenon 6000k, leather interior, Sound System to wake up the dead, DVD, dual stainless steel exaust.


The engine (1.4 16v Zetec S 75hp) doesn't match the look and i'm thinking of changing the engine to the 1.6 16v Zetec S (100hp). The Swap should be easy. The suspension and brakes are the same in the two models my only doubt its the transmission but even that i'm almost 100% sure its the same. The choice of the 1.6 its because its easier to swap since the rest of the mecanics match the two models and its probably easier to make it road legal (Remember i'm in Portugal )

The objective it's to reach 120/130hp on the 1.6 engine.
So...... any bright ideas?

From the top....

Front doors were isolated with Stinger's Roadkill mat for improved sound quality and you can see my hybrid 2 way system (woofers from Hertz, crossovers from Alpine Type R and Tweeters from Soundstream), also got rid of the seat's textils and got them done in leather...

Soon to be fited are the standart side skirts. Here in the picture i'm still getting them ready to be painted in the car colour...

This week the New Red Shock's from Selex should arrive too and will fited as soon as possible.

Still didn't find a engine...... but i'm in no hurry, i can wait.

Hi guys....

Need a bit of help from you if you can.... of course!

I was planing a engine swap for my car... replacing the 1.4 Zetec SE (75hp - FXDB) for the 1.6 Zetec SE (100hp - FYDA) but there are some questions that need answer before i do buy the engine...
The electrical instalation its the same and works in bouth engines?
Does the car starts with the 1.6 ECU?

The gearbox should be the same. Suspension and brakes are the same, fuel pump its diferent....

HELP!!!
