Much shorter gearing too, especially the 98's (shortest gearing of them all), and more aggresive cams, the TQ is still rated lower then a Focus Zetec from the factory though.

The VCT is kinda shitty, It retards timing on the exhaust cam to keep exhaust in the cylinder to reburn for emissions purposes, Sucks it got replaced with stupid EGR for the Focus though.

They're a bit more then a 'tad' quicker too, sorry to say. They'd give a SVT a run for their money from a dig, Would be a drivers race.
