So with a properly tuned car, could we expect around 190?

Not necessarily. You can't just add hp gains of different modifications on top of each other, and his car has always been one of the strong ones. A tune on his car may our may not have gotten him to 190, but someone that was 135 stock wouldn't even get close.

I honestly think the difference between strong runners and weak ones is the difference in fuel used. I understand a 5whp difference in engines but when one is 135whp and another 150whp stock then its more then just the engine being a freak. A lot of focus owners like to use garbage gas to save a buck or two even though better fuel will perform better and most of the time get better mpg.

The ones I have seen are with premium and most are 140-150whp. I think there was one on focaljet I believe that posted 13x whp and was using 87 or 89. As you know there isn't many dynos around.

there isn't because I think a lot of us are dreaming that we are going to jump from 150hp to say 190hp with only changing headers, exhaust, intake and tune. This is a 23% increase in hp. this is very hard to believe though it would be nice. Now i know i am going to piss a lot of people off but if you call and do the research you will see that a 23% or greater increase is just not possible. You might get to 180hp max on a good day lol

That and too many people are scared by the idea of dynoing and having to drop $75-100 each time for a piece of paper with colorful lines LOL
