Lol. I am just saying, our little foci aren't sports cars. They aren't meant to really go that fast. And AFAIK, the valve timing on the original duratec motors don't have variable timing, and the '13 ST is the only Focus with Ecoboost.

I would check to see if there are any pending DTCs. If the trans is having an issue, there is bound to be a code somewhere.
