    How much would the SVT focus cost?

    If your mustang is free and clear, I doubt the gas savings would offset the cost of the new car.

    Just do what Im doing, sell your stang and buy an STi. I'll beat all you guys weak little V8's and motors with toilet seats on top and stuff, while getting better gas mileage too ^-^

    I would just ask yourself is better gas milage worth the loss of power?

    I love killing STi's with my weak little V8 for exactly this reason. It would suck to spend all that money and lose 30+% of your power through the drivetrain. :lol:

    If you're changing up strictly for the economic benefits, then I'd say you're better off sticking with your mustang.

    If there are other reasons, then make the switch.

    no there it's not just economy. i want to try somthing new and ive always like the svt focus(dont know why but its more of an obcession) plus theres not to many around here so it would be cool to have one. Plus i want to build it for autocross. i also like owning stuff that my friends havent had yet to.
