I ran with every seat out but drivers, quarter tank of 93, intake and exhaust and ran a 15.9 with perfect shifts

You'll never see a 13 on a NA focus. I LOVE to mod but it's not gonna happen man.

Really? thats a bummer. You'd think it'd be at least a low 15 vs a high one. Oh well.

Here's my barely modded SE vs a modded ST, if you're lucky and a good driver you might get there with nitrous but not n/a ESPECIALLY not if you're a DCT.

Maybe, who knows. All I'm saying is with some spray anything is possible. Nobody's going to beat any modded STs though. If you're lucky you might catch one by surprise if they aren't a good driver.

If it's straight line speed you want, get a Mustang GT.
You'll hang reliably with a ST with your foot halfway to the floor.

On a proper race track (i.e. a road course), a good driver in a slower car can make up a lot of time on an average driver in a faster car.
