Rousch Stage 3 Focus

I just read about it in car & driver yesterday. Looks good w/the fat intercooler peering from the bottom. Has 230hp, but it only ran a 14.9? sounds awefully conservative to me. The srt-4 weighs about the same and has same hp, but runs a FULL second faster? I don't think so. What do you guys think? Oh yea, and it costs 28k..awfully expensive if you ask me.

yeah, that does sound off... the car sounds cool, any sites with pics or info?

Also, you have to realize that the 230hp and 250trq are to the wheels in the SRT-4... they underrated it. But still, a 14.9 is pretty damn week considering the SVT-F can pull a mid-low 15 with just 170/145. Whats the trq numbers its putting out?

This is a link to roush performance, http://www.roushperf.com/html/rpp_focusrally.htm. It gives info about the Roush Focus Rally and Roush Focus stg 1 and 2, but nothing of a stg 3 as of yet.

I also googled "roush stage 3 focus" and came up with nada, as well as searching on caranddriver.com and autoweek.com. Nothing there either.

To be honest, I can't remember of it was c&d, or in road & track mag. But it IS in there. It's a small article with a pic. I'm sure it's coming out soon, cuz they said IT WILL cost 28k for the stage 3. And they said you can get one at a Rousch certified ford dealership. there is one about 3 miles from my place, so I'll let ya guys know if they have one.
Also, it's not a zetec. '05+ foci no longer have zetec. It's either a 2.0 or 2.3 duratec it has in it.

It's actually in the new R&T SPEED Issue. It's running 0-60 in 6.5 sec. and a 1/4 mile at 14.9 sec. as previously mentioned.

An SVTF with a JRSC can run less than that so I have to question the $28-29K price tag it has. Plus I really don't like the styling on it at all. Just my opininon of course.
