2008 Focus

I have been searching around and cant seem to find any 1\4 mile times on the 2008 focus, Its Supposed to have a little more HP than the older ones, 140hp at the crank according to ford, and it does feel a little quicker than my buddies 2006 2.0 zx2. But i am wondering if anyone has had their 08 at the track yet, stock or not?

BTW i have a 2008 2dr manual SES focus stock for now.

Thanks for any replies

i took mine last nite and ran low 17s, ive never been to the track prior to that so i had no idea what i was doing. the only thing i had was the Steeda intake, by buddy thought i would have at least ran 19s so i guess its an improvement.

Is yours a 5spd or an auto? also if you remember what were your R/T and 60' times?

how the heck do you run a 1.86 for a 60' on an otherwise stock 08 fofo?? that would be sick, but i don't think this is possible w/ out DR's and boost. did u mean a 2.86??

16.4 or 16.5 probably but dont know for sure. My 08 was non PZEV with a K&N drop in and a auto and ran a 16.69. No way to know for sure till you run it.
