How insane did it get?. My C6 engine/drivetrain wise has the cam, C5R timing chain, heads, headers, exhaust, intake, intake manifold, throttle body and a tune done on it and a Katech clutch/flywheel kit.The Contour was a MUCH better car than the Focus is turning out to be. The Contour was still goign strong at 100,000 miles and in great condition. The Focus is struggling through Fords automatic transmission clutch failures. I wont keep this car much longer.
Just waiting for the Ford factory recall work to be done on the transmission then off to fins a different small family car to replace it with.
As for a Contour SVT, if its anything like the SE was only faster and cooler then I bet its a great car
Our C5 has been a work in progress since 2002. First just a B&M Ripper shifter, then headers, then a cam and cat backs - then all hell broke loose and the car went from mildly modded to completely insane - I like to think of it as my real life Forza Car - well except for that absurd AWD drive train mod Forza has hehe.
There was quite a bit of stuff done to the car by the previous owner that i have not listed. My recent addition is the cam, C5R timing chain, heads, intake, intake manifold, throttle body and tune.
