My names Harry McWilliams, Ford Focus ST
I drive a Ford Focus ST mk2 facelift. I just love these cars. They're such a great toy (but dont come cheap). I first bought the car completely standard from a Ford dealership. The cars engine was standard back then at 225bhp. But since then I have changed allsorts, including a new intercooler, whole new air intake system, decatted exhaust and put a stage 1 map producing 320bhp which pretty much pushes it to its max on a stage 1.
Ok so moving on, most of the modifications I've done Myself; including the engine, inside the car, under the car and just the general trims on the outside, for example: I de badged the whole car so it's a nice flush smooth finish. Mostly used all ebay parts but still fairly expensive. This isn't my first modified car but its definitely my best one. I havent finished it .
I've still got loads planned for it. One thing I do have planned for it though is a new RS clutch. Following that it will be getting a stage 2 map, hopefully bumping it up to around 360bhp - 380bhp at a push. My passion for this car is sky high, it's just an animal, a real road asbo car! I love the fact the handling is superb when its thrown into a corner.
Then on the exit from a corner it will stick to the road, pulling away popping and banging through every gear with flames from the exhaust. Combined with the sound of the turbo whining away, I just love it.
