And therein lies the the vast majority of people who are passionate about the performance of their Focus, there is no more important factor than straight line acceleration...especially if there happens to be another vehicle in the vicinity with whom the acceleration can be compared.

I'm in agreement with the majority of responders in this thread....there ultimately is more potential in the more modern and complex setup used in the SVT Focus, however because of limited numbers the aftermarket will never produce parts to take special advantage.

There is much more to outperforming the SVT than straight line acceleration...
