Yes you can, With my tune I got it up to 142mph.. This was on a private property road on private property that I have rights to. DO NOT DO IT ON PUBLIC ROADS, and honestly our cars are not made for it lol. Mine was gliding but still you can really tell our cars aren't sound deadened much haha.

It was a one time deal. I was in my last gear and let out at about 6100rpm

^^^^Yep, i have only been to 110mph while at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. (AKA a real race track, not on public roads!)The sound was deafening with my super loud tires, wind noise and so on. it just costs too much to drive fast in our cars. thats why i love blasting around in the desert, you cant go fast and you dont need a lot of power either!

I'm sorry to be such a bully, but I'm going to need some solid proof if I'm expected to believe you were able to do this.

First of all, if you were in 4th gear at 6100 RPM you would have actually been going 154mph.

Secondly, even to achieve 142mph you would need a minimum of 175 wheel horsepower.

I'm not saying its impossible to achieve 142mph in an automatic Focus. The transmission's actual top gearing speed is 164mph.
What I am saying is that unless conditions were unnaturally perfect, you could not have gone 142mph in your car. With data provided, it is physically impossible.

my gps is spot on speed up to the 120mph the dash shows and the gps showed 142 when i let out. Like i stated above I will not be doing it again as our cars are simply not made for it and I wont be out to my parents for several months.
As far as the parts to make 175 wheel horsepower some of My mods are
FS Werks CAI
Custom 2.5 inch Exhaust
SCT xcal 3 with Custom 93octane Tune
FSWerks 4-1 Race Header
FS Werks CAI
Custom 2.5 inch Exhaust
SCT xcal 3 with Custom 93octane Tune
FSWerks 4-1 Race Header
FRPP Suspension

I'm not going to argue with you on it but I know what my gps speed showed.

Okay well I'm just guessing here but since you don't have a dyno sheet to show us of actual whp, your mods on an automatic 2.0.... I'm guessing you have about 138whp. Maybe 140 on a cooler day.

Nope it is very possible I have had mine up to 143mph on the Autobahn germany.
