To the op.. he will most likely beat you... c1's are actually really quick... and it has vtec.. you might get him off the line but he will pull as soon as vtec hits in first gear... and he stops spinning... lol
I hope to prove you wrong, but we will see.

And I will see if anyone will film it, I think we might go to the Water town track, I think that's where it is, I have to look it up again, but I'm pretty sure we can run down the drag there for $10 bucks a piece.

Well, I have two more question.

What would it take to beat him, as in what would be my easiest mod to go for now, that add's good HP, I'm thinking with what I got, and the OBX header that's going on soon, I'd only need another 10-15 HP?

Maybe Stage 1 cams on stock internals?

And if I lose at drag, maybe I'll see if he wants to go autocross, I know the focus's turning capabilities will smoke the Honda.




EDIT:
And wouldn't this all mean, that if I took the 2.0L Duratec head, then I could raise my compression ratio too, and make more HP?

Those old hondas with the right suspension set up will dominate an autocross so don't get too cocky.

Jeez, I thought focus's were built to beat Honda's.

I have the "High performance builders handbook" by SA, and they talk as if the Zetec by itself was made to dominate Honda's, that V-tec guys should watch out?

This makes only a little sense to me, I know Honda's are made to make power at higher RPM's rather then on low RPM's, but how could a 1.8L swapped with a 1.6L head beat a 2.3l with mods?

If everything that is being said here is correct, the SVT would have a hard time just as much as my D23.

Am I missing something here? Whats so special about the Honda motors?

1/8 mile your focus wins.

1/4 mile the honda wins.

i recommend a 50 shot, just to ensure victory.

I never F with nitrous, just seen to many people do too much damage, more parts however, is something I'd be willing to spend the $$$ on.

W/E it takes to beat em, as long as I can afford it, there is no schedule for the race right now, we both still have work to do to get em race worthy.

As said in previous post, I am getting a OBX header soon to finish my exhaust, and I want to know if Crower stage 1's are just drop in and go, or is measurements needed, and would that be enough of a gain to compete?

Nitrous is a crutch and I don't believe in temporary ponies.
