"drop in K&N filter resonator delete"

These really dont add much power, if any on a zetec. Your time sounds about right for a Zetec/ manual. What was your 60ft time? we can tell a lot by that, ill bet youll get faster if you practice launching it

yep, not to shabby for stock and right about where you usually see them. but as buickboy said, some practice on reaction time and launch you may be able to shave a little more off

Find a used SVT intake system, you can get those really cheap and they perform at par with cold air intakes. Sticky tires will help, and lower your pressure in front so you don't spin them.
