Funny you should say that. I've raced a total of four SVT's since getting my 07. Only one was stock, and I have beat them all. Granted it was not by much, but I still beat them. Each one I raced with only an exhaust and CAI.

Don't get too cocky! lol And don't blame the driver, I've only been driving stick for a year and a half and I can't be better than 4 other SVT drivers. Especially in the San Antonio area.

I can end your winning streak if you would like. Just a slow bolt on car . We will do a track day soon, about 14 people from DFW plus FF Tom will be there. So make that short drive and show me what a 2 liter can do

^^ I didn't say anything about the guy driving an 07 ... He drove a 00 Sedan ... I know those are missing a few lengths of power.

Now the duratecs ... have surprisingly alot of torque on demand. I had one as a rental. So that has the SVT right there. Probably the one thing I really hate about the SVT is the 1st gear Bog ... So I think there are ways for anybody to run well in any car ... it is the way you drive. But I was talking about the dude in a 00 Sedan again.

Get you a 67mm TB and a tune and that will help that bog. Now a L/W-flywheel will remove it all together.

^^don't worry raymond you'll still eat us alive on the top end lol. And ford gave the SVT high gearing has a way to give us non-SVT's a chance and to encourage F/I which goes very well with the gearing of the SVT ecspecially turbo's

someone in what i believe was an 04 or older focus took interest to my black one today... they were following me pretty close and kept up with me in lane changes down lamar. I wonder if they're on here. It was a blue focus, no visible mods that I could see. Anyone got a picture of stock foglights? the ones that were on the car looked like they belonged there, but it could have been a nice mod.
