and i have my 5 speed duratec, and he is very sure he is gonna whoop me cuz he has 170hp and i only got 136, who do you think will win? im assuming i have a good shot seeing how my spi hung in really well with him last time we raced

Assuming you launch well and don't miss any shifts,I say you will be faster.The Cougar is about 400 lbs heavier (I'm pretty sure...)than your Focus,and automatic.Take it to him!

He weighs about 2900lbs and has 165hp with an auto. You should take him easy, if your spi was that close with him.

I would hope so. They are heavy and slow pigs. Focus should win easily

yes i have. And I stand by my statement. A stock 5-speed ZETEC might have problems with them, but a Stock 5 speed Duratec would own one. My focus can reach around 120MPH too and it had (before my header and R/T cat) around 115HP, Of course, it was on a track

This guy in his 2002 Cougar 2.5 V6 ATX with mods ran:
1/4 Mile ET: 16.577

Mods:
Throttle Body: SVT
Intake & Air Filter:: Cold Air Intake, SVT Manifolds
Headers (downpipe): MSDS Shorty
Mid Pip: Trubendz Test Pipe
Exhaust: Borla Duals
Tires: Kuhmo Ecsta 245/45/17
