Thats the key lol ZX3 FTW :)

Seriously...not sure I've seen an SVT over 400. If I could just fix the little demons that plague my car, I'll stick with it.

Could have? What's the problem then? He would be the only current SVT with 400, I'm pretty sure. Right now...I would be VERY happy with 300. Enough to light up the tires a ton and embarrass/surprise lots of people.

Yeah, I'm staying with it. I was getting the SVT ready to sell...then I tried changing the heater core in my Mustang and now it won't start. Something somewhere got disconnected and I'm a little pissed off at it right now 'cause it has turned into a big heap of . So I'm driving around with no 2nd gear in the Focus, but the trans should be here this week (fingers super crossed).

In hindsight (which is always 20/20, I know I know, spare me, haha), I shouldn't have gotten another car and just gotten a new trans right away. I was just pissed off at the Focus for not running right and I can't for the life of me figure it out. But now I am willing to keep looking and maybe some day make some big power.

Thank you.

Well I want to tested as in PR we do a lot of street racing and I need that quick spooling we am running vs N/A or NOS set-up's.

Was on race gas.
