Lookin' good, man! What is it? I thought it may be the 3dCarbon, but mine is bigger than that one, and it doesn't have a profound "lip" like yours. Very nice.

Your drop rocks, as well.

i'll ask again, what type of springs do you have? eibachs?
the lip looks good, but it's kind of small for my tastes as it's barely noticeable. your car looks sweet though with the lowering.

That's not a spoiler it looks more like a piece of weather striping!!!!!  As far as the springs who cares. I'm not doing any suspension mods until I can find a set of adjustable coil over shocks!!!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ why do people feel the need to bash on other peoples mods, by the way it looks good, lets see some pics of your fusion to see how gay it is.

I've been scourcing all exteior mods for the fusion for months.  The problem is there is not much on the market.  I will not slap just any parts on my car just to be different..  when I'm done scourcing parts the install will be done all at once so that the aftermarket add ons are painted at the same time to insure color match!  If you would like a list of parts suppliers I've been in contact with I'll post them.  Didn't mean the dis, your spoiler is to low profile for my taste.  It looks like the one 3d carbon puts out!  I have a line on a high profile spoiler with an L.e.d. 3rd brake light similur to a 00-05 honda civic for $133.00 If your interested!!.  I also have pix of the 97 CK1500 Chevrolet Truck I've been building!

Thanks for the compliments guys. I found this spoiler on Ebay and liked the small, subtle look of it.

Iowaguy, the coils are Eibachs.

Furious1auto. Everyone has a different idea of what the perfect look is for their car. Some want the huge spoiler, aggressive body kit, and neons everywhere styling, while others of us like the more understated look. I'm going for more go than show, so the understated look is what I'm after.

BTW, adjustable coilovers are already available for the Fusion.

If that's the case then check out www.draxas.com look for a link ( prodject fast fusion ) they've taken a I-4 2.3 mazdaspeed 6 turbo and modified it to fit the fusion they're still working on it but" their claiming a potential 400 HP. Or if you have the 3.0 run a search for ford fusion mrt. there is also a turbo being developed for that motor!!! cool stuff check it out.. As of yet nothing released to the public. I've sent E-Mails to both vendors I'll keep you posted!!!

You'll never see 400hp on stock internals. Besides, it would be a complete waste of money to have 400hp, or even 300hp, in a FWD Fusion. As it sits, I get wheelspin all the way through first gear. I compete in road rally and autocross in my car, so handling balance is more important than big HP numbers.

Once you get any mods done to your car, please post pictures.

You are correct the internals are not stock. From the little specifics I do know of the prodject they used the crank out of a ranger pick-up, A highflow converter custom one off "3 inch catback exhaust, forged dome pistons, chromoloy rods and, ported & polished heads. I do agree that a AWD is more deserving of such a drivetrain but you still have to appretiate what they've done! You can't dismis HP although you are right about the need to get the power to the ground whithout wheel spin!
