|sickboy1031||how much difference do you think i will see with the offroad pipe?|

Try shifting at the absolute latest RPM 6800, if you are on a stock tune, and 7k on a raised limiter.
You aren't gonna gain any time running all the way into the redline, and if you hit the limiter, it slows the car down, losing your momentum.

you should be doing much faster than that.
\My duratec stock will do a 15.75
and you should be faster than that

|BigRed03||I know if I dump my clutch from 2000-2500 rpms when I launch I get shitttttttyyyyyyyyy wheel hop. I havent been to the track to try the 4k feather. WHen I got my fastest time I had a slight wheel hop from about 2500 rpm drop, I pushed the clutch back in and kept it floored and it helped considerably. I havent done a true feather, but Ive done some practicing from traffic lights and it does do quite well.|

Feather the clutch out from 5000RPM. If done correctly, you will not spin nor bog. SVT Foci should NEVER have a traction problem in NA form, seeing as they make so little power.
EDIT: See this thread:

|gump1114||also to show you that your car has more potential, looking back at one of my old time sheets i ran a 15.985 at 86.21 mph. you ran a slower time but were moving faster. if you compare my run to yours, you were catching up even before the 1/8 mile but i got off the line better. like i said it comes with practice.|

i can tell by your 60' times that you are having traction issues off the line. it will come more with practice but you need to get to where you see sub 2.2 60' times. your overall 1/4 time will drastically get better.
all i can say is practice practice practice. i have a sneaking supision that you are either shifting too early or too late too because i have bad traction issues but still get better 1/4 times and i dont have an svt.
