IMO once you're getting along in the 14 second 1/4 mile range you're starting to be quick,13s your company is getting rarer especially with a 4 banger and those are generally FI'd from the factory. If you run 12s your company shrinks considerably and even the quickest 4 bangers need some outside help to get into the 12s.
All honesty and i know i may have rejection on it. But i personally think the 1/4 mile drag racing is a v8 thing. Not saying four cylinders dont do it but v8's own that type of course. So when i look at building my own personal car i dont look at 1/4 mile time i would look at track time. If i was to be doing any kind of racing like that. And a bolt on focus is not slow. They can be quick if you build them.
I drive a Focus and You noticed!
