Est. My 1/4 time plz

Alrighti was wandering what my car could possibly do the 1/4 mile in. I have a 2000 ZX3 so i have the Early Intake Manifold, Bosal Cat-back exhaust, Pace Setter Shorty header, Mac Short Ram intake, Ford Racing 9mm wires, Champion Double Platinum pluggs. My car is 5spd also. I know it varys on the driver, but just give me a good guess. Ive heard that a focus is possible of running the 1/4 in 16sec, so what am i running now?

well its hard to estimate 1/4 time, part of you getting faster times is done by you, not by your mods..but i'll say in the 16 prolly, a focus can run better then 16 seconds, some run 12's

I have also heard that some focus can run between 12 and 13.

yah that one focus in the ff mag runs high 8's :) thats cool...anyways its hard to say what u run cause lots of weather considerations must be taken into consideration also...u could run a 16 by me and have the same temp out in florida and run a 18 cause the temp might be the same, but the sea lvl is diff among many other thigns....prob a 17 though

Yeah i ran a 16.7 with cat back, intake. and some bad wheel spin. I have 65tb, udp, and wires and the other stuff of course. I'd say I can run about 16.3-16.5 but haven't checked yet. Oh I also have better tires so they stick better. And I agree it's the driver making the better time. I can drive well but I was nervous as shit with 16.7 so I think it's not avery good time. one more thing Stock Focus is not a 16 sec car. maybe the SVT. Infact I think the SVT is a 15.9 and the Civic sir is a 15.8. At that point its the driver.

OK guys, now how dumb are you????? Ive seen a stock focus run between 15.9-16.1 in the 1/4 mile. Now either u guys cant drive worth shit, or somethings wrong with your car.
