LOL. My Focus got smoked by everything.

Then I bought a car with a turbo. Now I hold my own.

Nobody wants to play when I'm in the Focus but when I'm in the STI I get taunted by everything.

lol you guys are complaining about MK3 Foci being slow?! try my automatic SPI sedan... 0-60 in 12-13 seconds and I struggle to reach 100 MPH. merging onto freeways takes full throttle and even then it takes a while! probably making like 85 WHP

Yeah, there's slower out there but the Focus is pretty average where quickness is concerned but it is fun to drive quick thru the twisties.

Most mid sized family sedans now run 14s with the better engine. Tons of new cars are faster than a base focus.

I have seen 11 second 1/4mile Mopar minivans with turbos.
Kinda cool, except being a Dodge and all.

Haha, nope. Other than regular maintenance, the only thing I've had to replace was a cheap EBay downpipe put on by one of the previous owners.
