Also wanted to bump this post to see if we can pull the last 10 percent from these cars.

The Focus has seemed a bit low on power lately, so I logged a third gear WOT acceleration today. The log looks good, so I will blame the perceived power loss on the recent high temperatures and humidity. I didn't allow the ambient temp sensor to "catch up"--it actually was 95 degrees for this run.
Actually, I think the perceived power loss may be due to me driving my '01 lately. The Zetec has better low-end torque, making the Ti-VCT feel a bit lackluster below ~4500 RPM. Of course, the Zetec runs out of breath at that RPM, and the Ti-VCT pulls much harder to redline.
This is with 93 octane E10.

Here is a 1/4 Mile log I took this afternoon. Car is running 91 Oct. with K&N drop-in, snorkel delete w/ "ram air", and some ducktape... this forum will explain a bit better; http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/mk3-focus/322276-5-minute-throttle-response-dct-solution.html Give it a read if you haven't, could be another good free upgrade?!?
I've highlighted shift-points to make it a bit easier to read.

|Seminoles||I thought so to so took the car with log to dealer and turned out the TPS in the car foot pedal was bad and so far no more random power lose. It hit 60 in second gear the rest was cruising.|

It seems odd to me that you're at "WOT" with ~30% Throttle for the whole log. It's also odd that you are running so lean (if that log were truly WOT to 60) It is also odd that if you were at WOT that you were running ~30degrees advanced during the whole acceleration. I'd try running another log and make sure your datapoints are accurate.
That's not a very good log to learn off of due to the insanely random numbers placed in all sorts of places. You need to play around with the app and select more useful PIDS such as:
IAT (Intake Air Temperature)
Air to Fuel ratio (both commanded and measured)
Engine speed (RPM)
OBD speed (MPH)
there are probably a few others that I am missing but I'll assume you're getting the gist of it.
I must also note, you should make sure the datapoints are linear with time ;)

|dyn085||I merged your thread into the Torque App thread.|

Torque App, 93 E10, and Timing Advance
So anyone wanna tell me how to read this? Its sorted by highest throttle position.

The theory is based on the knock plugin my 2012 with 48,000 she drove it some and put 87 in it when I got it back used plugin and got 7 knocks after three tanks of Hess 93 no knocks, while hers has 16,000 on it all she uses is 87 one knock at first part of WOT. Going to check it out as soon as i find a bore scope I can barrow.
