'03 SE Wagon Auto potential?

Hey everyone this is my first post, im not new to the car scene im 27 years old and have been around cars since I was 4 years old. Had an '04 Cavalier Ecotec Auto I/H/E/Tune/75 shot of Nitrous got it to a 14.05 in the 1/4 with Nitto Drags. Recently I acquired an '03 Focus SE Wagon Auto Trans for 1500 bucks couldnt pass it up since I needed an economical car. My '97 5.7 Chevy is killing me.

Anyway what is the potential of these cars with the auto trans in stock form? What 1/4 times could I expect. I plan on doing a CAI, Header, Full exhaust with a Dynomax super turbo, and Tune if I can find someone locally to do it. Could I at least get this car into the high 15s, with the mods I mentioned? What is the Max amount of a wet shot of nitrous can a Zetec and auto trans handle stock?

No your looking at 16.9 or higher my auto sedan has the same setup and a reaction time of .4.... yeah bad i know lol it got a 16.8 thats with a 93 pump gas tune, headers, CAI, 2.5 cat back and back end striped out and the wagon is heavier than the sedan

And I think 75 hp is the most stock and untuned can take from wet but i know with good tune you can spray more

I'd go for improving the handling rather than power........

If you start making power with that weight the ATX will grenade pretty quick. They are well nigh indestructible at stock power levels but any BIG increase saws them in half pretty quick.
