Havent been to the track but im pretty sure im about 14.9. NA with bolt ons. If you do buy one, throw a turbo on it and you'll be around 13.5 with only about 10psi. Correct me if im wrong guys....

13.5? I've gone 12.74@106 on the stock turbo@16psi (Stage 1 SRT-4). I upgraded to Stage 3R (370hp) and never had a chance to run it again.

I'm only looking to do a few things, keep the cost reasonable. 14's would be plenty N/A. The turbo kits aren't street legal in California, at least the SRT-4 even with Stage 3R (larger turbo) looked STOCK and was built from day one to be turbocharged.

I would also run slicks, I don't bother with street tires, I don't street race.

Priorities have changed, I just want something fun to drive that's fairly quick, it doesn't have to be brutally fast; I've had that, I'll have it again, just not now.

Mine isn't an ST, it's a ZX3 but with the 2.3 and I ran a 15.07

i think a full bolton "MAY" reach the 14's. but i also don't think a full bolton motor can make that much whp NA. i've ran a 14.8 in my zetec, but i'm stripped to the bone and making 164 whp.

Man....please find that thread.
I would Love to hit low 14s.

^^ it was Egz. He ran a 13.9 at like 101mph. The thread title is something along the lines of "cant stop here, this is turbo country"

Anyways, 14sec times are easily attainable in a 2.3 focus with simple bolt ons and proper driving.

^^I can't find it now. I remeber rading it in disbelief last year. I do think it was gutted
