30 hp/lb ft is roughly a 20+% increase over stock, so it would be quite noticeable. Driveability isn't how much tq you have as much as where it is in your powerband. More tq earlier is better for a dd, later is better for RACECAR.

Go through the dyno chart thread, they all have links to the discussions about the mods and are quite informative.
I will definitely check out the second generation Focus thread. Thanks for the tip.
