I have to say your RS is absolutely stunning, the upgrades tail lights and LED bulbs really set it off. Can't wait to see the end result. I think it's cool that your on the forum sharing your RS with us and answering questions. :thumbup: to you sir!

And can we get an engine shot?

Emmanuel.

I do have video of the dyno runs but because the 70mph blower fan is so loud, you can't hear the engine note, which makes it kinda anticlimactic :(

Wow wow wow. I guess I am late to this thread by about a month but the car should be ridiculous when you're all through.

Congratulations! What a gift you've been given to be able to experience having, driving, and tastefully modifying such a wonderful car!

I think you should drive that thing to Ford headquarters and do burnouts in the parking lot until you get some attention then ask "WHY THE HELL DO YOU NOT PRODUCE THIS FOR THE US MARKET". Then say thank you politely, answer any questions, take some photos maybe,and drive back home.

Actually Ford Performance Group, the one that manages the SVT, RS, and Ford Racing groups, invited me out to the Detroit Auto Show for the new ST unveiling. Trust me they loved my Mexican RS and wanted me to bring it, but it was January so the RS stayed home warm and dry. It was the Ford US platform managers years ago that made the decision not to bring the St and RS to the US. However, in the management shakeup at Ford, it is all Europeans running the performance divisions, so whatever Europe gets the US will get as the Focus is now a global platform.
