That sounds about right for stock cars. Once you mod the ST the "bottom end/top end doesn't matter. It's going to be faster than the SVT. An ST with an intake will pull even or beat an SVT. An ST with intake and exhaust will have no problem beating an SVT. In my D23 PZEV with intake and exhaust i beat bolt on svt focuses several times without issue. The good thing about the ST is that it is NOT expensive to mod. Probably less expensive to mod than the SVT

I ran a best time of 10.62 saturday night out of 3 runs at sunshine speedway in my 05' ST with only a Steeda SRI and a full tank of gas... Ran a 10.92 on the last run with Passenger/Camera man LOL...
