111 mph is not going to get you anywhere close to hitting eleven second e.t's! you need closer to 117 mph traps for 11's..
stock 01 camaro ss i ran 12.8 at around 110 going through the traps..stock tires

Intake on these cars dont do much for performance till u put headers on.
Also trying to keep it "stock" appearing.

|tallguy2.3||Why not a simple intake? Intake, tune, driveshaft, shifter should make for a super responsive dd.|

Just a tune for me too
Im about to order a Aluminum Driveshaft and steeda shifter. next season i plan on getting a set of slicks and shooting for a mid to low 11 once the track warms up.

|BigRed03||There is a new 5.0 down in these parts running just under a 12.6 with only a tune and stock tires. Its auto though. Shooting for 11.8s on DR's, suspension and tune only.|

Not sure what u mean by all that.
The procharger kit is 550 wheel with stock everything.
The base whipple kit starts at almost 7k, procharger 4600...
And im staying NA, Comp Cams should be releasing cams here soon. Shooting for 500 wheel all motor. Then if i want to add a supercharger i still can.

The focus would have given it to the mustang how ever it wanted. dig, roll. wouldnt matter.
The focus actually got better traction that the mustang does becasue i can run low boost (12psi) in second gear then swtich to hi boost (24psi) in third and it wouldnt spin at all from a 40 roll. However. the Focus felt like it had no stability over 100mph and hoestly when ur pushing 364 wheel with the nose of the car facing the sky at 100mph it gets real scary and sketchy.
No doubt in my mind i can run 11.80's all day withthe focus on a slick.
Now the Mustang is a MUCH more fun car to drive. Nothing like hitting 2nd and getting a little sideways. Now with the tune and it being a bit colder i lose traction and go sideways when i hit third at 75 mph...not fun when u dont expect it...
I was a little suprised with the lack of traction these cars have stock. even when i got it when it was in the 70s at night it would spin when i hit second and somtimes spin rolling into first. And launching the car...well iv only gotten 2 good legit launches out of it since iv got it. And iv launched it prolly 20 times lol. I just cant find that sweet spot.
Also the mustang has GREAT control at higher speeds and is an all around easier car to drive.
Even tho the Focus was MUCH faster i would choose the Mustang just because its so much mroe fun to drive...lol

Okay be honest here Fi: Your old focus vs. new mustang, which would win a race and which do you prefer?
I would think the significant weight advantage of the Focus (while maintaining virtually identical power figures) would weigh heavily in the little grocery getter's favor. BUT I can't imagine 364whp going through some skinny little tires on a FWD car could hook well in most situations. (Thinking more along the lines of driving around on some public roads than with slicks at the VHT prepped strip).
Overall weight, weight balance, drive wheels, tire size and width, etc... etc.... there are many factors that play into this. What do you think about all of them combined?
(My guess is that I'd prefer the stang. Driveable, reliable, has grip at speeds under 60mph, etc...)
