ok so i had a good idea
im gonna get my burb to 300+ HP..... i raced a modded focus ZX3 and he was behind me the whole time and the only thing i have on my burb is exhaust.... now where i wanted to start is getting one of those 14 x5 k&n air cleaners, then a Hypertech Chip, then maybe get the stock heads ported and polished and then the intake the same... maybe some apc decals lol j/k... where should i go from there i dont wanna do any forced induction or spray... its already 210 stock and i dont know what it is with the exhaust...

wow, sounds cool. Better lower your burb if you want to go fast, it doesn't take corners very well.

300 should be no problem.
When you say exhaust, does that include headers?
I would say a nice roller cam, and roller rockers will free up some hp quite nicely, and combined with your other plans will put you up in the 300's easy.Patrick

Air entering the motor and exiting the motor is an excellent start. So heads are a natural. Stay away from piston and compression changes (unless its getting tired) They usually don't give you enough bang for the buck. Sounds like you've kinda got the idea. Your right too, staying away from spray is not a good idea. Things tend to go BOMB, leaving you with an even bigger bill. IMO

When I had my '01 Ranger, one of my co-workers had the zx2 focus, and kept trying to race me all the time. One day we were both at the toll booth on NH101 out by the seacoast, and I noticed that they tried gunning it away. I wasted that little focus. No more race attempts after that for some reason.
I still don't understand why they think they've got fast cars, modified or not. It's still a focus.
