Jeez, I thought focus's were built to beat Honda's.

I have the "High performance builders handbook" by SA, and they talk as if the Zetec by itself was made to dominate Honda's, that V-tec guys should watch out?

This makes only a little sense to me, I know Honda's are made to make power at higher RPM's rather then on low RPM's, but how could a 1.8L swapped with a 1.6L head beat a 2.3l with mods?

If everything that is being said here is correct, the SVT would have a hard time just as much as my D23.

Am I missing something here? Whats so special about the Honda motors?
2000 SE wagon 2.0l Zetec.
