So it appears what looks like an aftermarket header maybe the stock unit and it also has a catalytic converter. Only a cat back is installed.
The OBDll reader revealed only a P0122 code (throttle body sensor/switch) there is something up with that as the car keeps reving high when in gear and I actually have to brake to keep it under 45 in 4th gear.

Sweeetness.

Let me know what I can do. I should have a pretty steady flow of 225/45/15 tires you can have for free or nearly free to help keep costs down.

Not possible on the header. It might be the SVT stuff.

We can datalog it to find out the throttle/iac issue. Bring it to the meeting Wednesday?

You're maybe right and it is from an SVT. That would be great if we could do some data logging on Wednesday.

Emanuel, I want to be the first to welcome you to the cheapskate tire gang. Dave is a recent addition (by self admission) as well.

I thought I was a member all along. In 8 years of autox I only bought 4 completely new tire sets. Everything else was always used.

So the next Autocross is in two weeks and I need some help getting this car ready. This is more about being safe then sorting out the car.

Does anyone have some 4x108 15" wheels for sale/willing to lend temporary?
Also before I just buy a set of cheap KYB (which did serve me well in three other cars before, including the FTDiS wagon) anyone has some functional shocks for a Focus?

I think I may have some, but they wont fit your focus unfortunately. The rears may fit but the the fronts definitely dont. Sold my last set of 4x108s a couple months ago.
