Question n20 fed 13.8 sec SVTf?

Right now I have a stock '03 SVT focus. This august I am going to buy a Wet ZEX nitrous kit and run a 75 shot. I have seen a couple SVTs on these forums running nitrous and pulling off high 13's. My question is what did you do to your engines to pull off those times???
I am really not intrested in forced induction setups though, just the happy gas!

I have several off my own ideas floating around in my head, but I would really like to learn what other people have in there cars to make them that quick.
Also are these people running street tires or slicks? Are these cars gutted? If anyone has a timeslip with a high 13sec n20 setup I would really like to see all the numbers!

All it takes is Drag radials.

Invest in a flywheel and clutch as well.

CAI, Hi-flow cat, 75 shot,bottle heater, MSD rpm window switch, Crane ignition with 'on demand' timing retard, drag radials on lightweight rims, UDP's, short shifter, VF rear mount.

I still run full interior, but I fold down the rear seats, and roll the front ones as far forward as comfortably possible. I also put those rubber spring inserts in the rear coils to stiffen the rear suspension.

best slip is in my sig (click on the time listed) I have several others in the 13.7-13.9 range as well



Almost forgot, the stock clutch and flywheel held up for a while, but I'm right now shopping for an update (starting to slip when I really get on it)

Hopefully my times will get a bit better with a stronger clutch/ lighter flywheel

Your one of those SVTs I was talking about! That is an awesome setup you have!
I was wondering about your 'on demand' timing setup...do you just have a regular tune with advanced timing or a nitrous tune? Im guessing you have a regular tune and you use the 'on demand' timing retard when running nitrous?
What is your launch technique with your nitrous? What rpms do you launch at? Do you slip or drop the clutch?
13s in a focus, that is amazing!

You could get a book like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/188...lance&n=283155
Then decide for your self if nitrous is best for you. But I agree with the ''better safe than sorry'' rought as well.
Nitrous is kind of like a prescription pill, follow the rules and dosage and you should only have minor side effects, break the rules and your looking for disaster....

I'm running an xcal2 with a N/A 'street tune'(Hypnotic) The Crane unit pulls out the amount of timing I feel nessecary only when the nitrous solenoid fires. (I currently pull 12 degrees, 10 to offset the agressive tune, 2 for the nirtous) The benefit is I have full power off the line, (instead of a boggy 'nitrous tune' where until the spray hits, you are losing power).

The happy side effect is, I never have to reflash the car. My 'street' tune says in all the time, and anytime I want to hit the nitrous, the timing retard is right there waiting. (So if I were to 'accidently' trigger my bottle opener, and 'accidently' hit the master arm, then 'accidently' have my foot to the floor on the street, the spray is going just fine, with all protection in place.)

I launch on drag radials at 4500 rpm, but keep the gas pedal just barely off the floor (holding off the nitrous) until I feel the clutch grab completely, and the tires hook (hard to describe in words, but its a matter of milliseconds between launch, full clutch and tire grab. Once I feel it, the foot goes to the floor, nitrous fires, and away I go) I don't drop the clutch, but I do release fairly quickly.

I have a very simple setup with my nitrous. I just have a bottle warmer, and wot switch. I would like to rune something like Scott SVT. IMO I think that is the safest setup you could possibly run without running it at all. My system is all controlled by a 75 shot tune by Wayne at Hypillauto. Unfortuneatly I have to reflash my car everytime I want to run the Juice. hopefully you get some helpful info on nitrous and you can make a wish choice for your setup. Also remember nitrous itself cannot hurt your engine. Its how you use it.
