Project Name: Red Hot Chili Pepper
Car: '02 Focus ZX5
Timeline: March 2003-February 2006
Goal: Make a four-cylinder a respectable commuter.
Result: 13-second e.t.'s and a look that's not overly import.
Best Performance: 13.93/96 mph
Biggest Mistake: 18-inch wheels with 215/40/18 rubber in New Jersey.
Best Move: Precision Turbo & Engine turbo kit. It made up for all the Pepper's shortcomings.
We shoulda swapped in a V-8!
