About this title


The sport compact performance market is hot and getting hotter - and while the Honda Civic and Acura Integra have long been the dominant players in the market, a newcomer is emerging as a popular car for performance modifications - The Ford Focus. Well-built, inexpensive, good looking, and easy to modify, the Focus is quickly catching the Hondas in terms of market popularity. This book shows Focus owners exactly what it takes to improve their car's performance, from simple modifications like installing a new air intake to radical mods like installing a turbocharger. The author also shows what those modifications can do, with before-and-after dyno tests for each modification. There's also extensive info on suspension and brake modifications for better handling and braking. It's a one-stop shop for those who want a sharper, faster Focus.

About the Author:

Life-long automotive enthusiast Richard Holdener's connection with Fords began when he special ordered a 5.0L LX Coupe to which he added a roll cage, harnesses and a fire system and took racing as an SSGT car. His first race resulted in a win, and later that car became somewhat of a legend, having run in nearly all of the Silver State Classic open road races, including an overall win at an average speed of 167 miles per hour. During one of the events at which the boost was increased to 9 psi, the Vortech supercharged 5.0 Liter was timed at 193 mph on the 13-mile straight. "The Little LX That Could" has been featured in "Hot Rod," "Car Craft," "Super Ford," "Muscle Mustang and Fast Ford" and even in "Road & Track"'s Supercar issue. Holdener has written numerous articles on the Ford Focus for a number of Ford and sport compact enthusiast magazines. He lives to conduct dyno tests.
