1/4 mile times anyone?

I would like to know what others are getting as far as 1/4 mile times with their turbo focus.

I got a 14.92 at 93.7 MPH in

2001 Sedan
Lentech Auto with LSD
Internally Stock Zetec
Top Speed Turbo Kit
CFM 65mm TB on Y2K Manifold
Full 2.5inch exhaust
12psi of boost
Tom Tune

350lb Driver and 200lbs of stereo in the car.

I did this on my G-Meter, but supposedly it is very accurate.

Is that a good time?

Thanks,
Joe

And they say go turbo ...

I ran about that (higher trap speed) with my N/A car.


But check the drag race section.

Kinda sucks but then again your doing it off a g-meter and not a track where you can get 60foot and accurate times ,I have seen many of the g-meters off by a little to a lot

What boost you running ? sorry forgot

Stock engine you should be high 13`s to low 14`s

I made 1 change since the last tune. I took the Air Filter off the turbo and piped it up into the fender well for cooler air. I am going to have to send you a log and have you check it.

I will email you sometime this month about it.

Thanks,
Joe

That 550-600lbs of weight is going to make a huge difference. You've piled on sway bars and audio equipment that will only hurt your speed. You're basically trying to power a Mustang with a Focus motor now.

Given the added weight, tires, boost, and transmission I say that's about right.
On my old turbo at 11psi mine ran 13.6 @ 102, but I weighed around 180lbs, pulled weight from the car, manual transmission, and drag radials.

Light is fast.

Yeah, you should definitely be running quicker than that. A 2.3 duratec with basic bolt-ons and a good driver can hit the mid 14 mark. A stock SVTf is in the low 15s.

Get yourself out to a proper drag-strip and get the real numbers from a few different passes. Be sure to record the altitude of the track and the temperature outside.
