wha? whoa wait! 11? 11 seconds in the 1/4? how much power are you putting down now? it must be MUCH more than the 385 in your sig! well not MUCH much more but my off the top of the head guesstimation would be a need of at least 450-500whp to get into the 11s. i seem to recall you did something new recently but i didnt know it was that significant!

Toby did 12.5 with 298whp, i made 385 in 101 degree weather at 20psi, i have a tune for 23psi so we will see what it does

the problem with that is that it seems to take exponentially more power the faster you want to go in the 1/4. 125whp=16s 155whp=15s 200whp=14s 250=13s and now traction goes completely out the window at 300. now you're in the 12s barely unless you got slicks. i watched a properly tuned 400whp focus on 9 inch hankook radials (bleh i know) run back to back to back 12.1 and 12 flat 1/4 mile passes the day it got off the dyno in fayeteville. i dont know from personal experience how much good lakewood traction bars do but they didnt seem to help him very much. and then there is tom. he put down what? 735whp with his and only managed a 10.95? now granted he did drive like granny out of the hole to keep from breaking stuff every time he went to the track and that car would have probably been capable of a much lower 10 second 1/4 but the massive difference in power is a pretty good indicator. there is a 335whp difference between a 10.5 ish second focus and a 12 second focus. 300whp to make up 1.5 seconds in the 1/4. damn im making myself all depressed now because i think i just realized i wont ever see anything faster than 13s in mine without putting it in the garage over the course of a year or two and just stuffing a v8 in it.

The problem with everything you said is, there are other factors like weather and weight. to go 10.9 it only takes 570whp as the PR focus proved it. at 670whp its running 10.1 but had some issues so 670 is capable of nines. im not going out there expecting 11s but ik my setup is capable of it if i push it
