safooma You could beat a 04 and previous, but no way for an 05+ v6, at least a manual. The 05+ stangs are quite a bit quicker than the previous gen v6.
I drove an 05 v6 mt for two weeks last summer on a trip and it was definately faster than my 07 mtx fofo hatch. The fofo handle better though...


I need to have a friend come over and drive my 93 tbird(HO5.0) so I can run my fofo against it...seat of the pants they seem pretty even.

N3M3S1SFOCI i swear we had this same debate in October. I have a 07 ZX3 MTX, and my mom has a 01 Mustang V6 5-speed convertible. Driven both regularly. The Mustang has torque off the line. Using both of our cars ... we would have a race. I would think the Mustang by 1/2 a car length. IF the Mustang was an auto, it would be an easy win for the Focus. The 4 speed in the Mustang is a POS. Auto V6 Mustangs are no fun, slow as hell. Truck engine + dated tranny = no fun

zx32nr i can def tell u that on the high end the stang will probably pull. my mom has an 02 convertable, so it weighs even more than a hard top and i have taken hers up to the limiter and it seems like it still wants more HARD!!!!!

I hate having an ATX but I'm just to lazy to deal with city traffic on a manual tranny, probably my car is lazy aswell, it just won't go fast.
iunno...my car gets up there pretty quick with the same mods (sri in place of CAI) and a tune...mabey i have a freak engine.

or u can just turbo it and kill v8 stangs XD.

Klondike i raced a v6 camaro 5speed from a 25 mph roll, i let him jump first cuz i wasnt sure if he was gonna go but he nodded and took off in a hurry and i had it in 2nd still so i mashed the gas, into 3rd and was right on his bumper and he couldnt shake me, and i know the kid and he is a better driver then me, im wondering if i could beat him from a dig...

illinipo I hunt V6 Mustangs and Camaros in my spare time... But deer tastes better.

Give it a shot, you might be that much of a better driver. But you would be better off with an intake and short throw shifter.

Oh I forgot to mention but I'm not Mexican, I have that avatar on my profile because as you may know, most foci are made in Mexico, or at least mine was. Also the Duratec engine and most of its components were engineered in Chihuahua, a Mexican state. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Duratec_engine

But I guess you are right, it's a lazy mexiCAN engine lol.
