Hey guys. I was just wondering if anybody has a supercharger on their SVTF (Vortech or Jackson) and what they run in the quarter mile. I wanna be able to ride with STi's and Evo's and thats pretty much the only way an SVTF will do it....unless you wanna spend about $7k on Tom's kit. No thanks.

Hate to break it to ya but even with a Vortech youll end up having to spend more than what toms kit cost to be able to hang with STI's and EVO's. With the vortech kit there is a slim chance that youll run with a stock EVO from a roll. And with either from a stop your dead. Its hard to match either of these cars without going turbo. And with the SVT's high compression youll need a new set of pistons if you wanna be making the kind of power to be right up there with an EVO or STI.

I could see it. A vortech with a pulley and some bolt-ons could be Lancer territory. Focus CFM says the Vortech is good for 276 hp and 204 ft/lbs.
Evolution weighs some 3,250 pounds. 11.75 lbs/hp & 11.75 pounds per ft/lb of torque
Focus 2,770 pounds.______________10.04 lbs/hp & 13.59 lbs/ft/lb or torque
The Lancer will always take the Focus off the line but I think the Vortech could be the answer. Oh yeah, you'll need a lot more power than this in the quarter to hang with those badass cars because AWD oWn3s FWD in stoplight racing.

Speaking of pistons...............who makes them for the Focus?

As I know there are no aftermarket pistons yet for the SVTF.

What about regular? Eagle is making H-Beam rods.

I saw a stock srt-4 run side by side with a evo from a roll, just when they ran from a stop the evo whooped him. With a vortech and some slicks you should be able to take out a evo pretty easily. More hp, less weight, and cut like a 1.9 60' time.
