I think honhon was thinking of the JRSC setup on the Zetec. Powerworks gets you close to Duratec country.

Is everybody feeling better about owning a Focus now ??
With the right settings dialed in, the srt should be a blast around corners.
Didn't the srt4 school the competition around the track when car and driver/motor trend? had that track race with the wrx , Evolution etc etc..? I'm talking overall track time...

ALSO... the duratec with stage 1 focussport turbo kit at 8psi produces 200whp...

the zetec with a supercharger at 8.5psi produces only about 179whp...

My little Zetec with a Powerworks put down 208 at the wheels on 8.5 lbs of boost. And thats being safe and only pulling to 6600, on a Mustang dyno.
Proof....

And still climbing!
So take that!

this thread should just be closed. its getting dumb

why are people still arguing on this.
SRT's go straight, SVT go round and round.

simple. street racing is bad...blah blah blah... SRTs go fast
