After posting this thread sometime ago I have come to the conclusion that most people are over 16 seconds with there mods standard mods like TB, COmplete exhaust, Intake.

So that would shed about 2 seconds in a quarter mile from a stock car.

So its up to the individual person to ask themselves is 2 seconds worth 1500.

It depends on the person. If it makes you giggle like a schoolgirl everytime your focus WAGON beats an svt or a riced out honda, etc. Then yes it is worth every penny.

17.22 in my friends focus. Did a 16.79 in my stock PZEV

in a z06 w/borla header and cat-back exhaust i did 12.92. Someone did 12.6 in a stock z06. Those things are pretty damn fast.

hey Justinzx3gfx
it could be a lot of things- first if your exhaust is 2.5'' all the way back with nothing but pipe u have lost to much backpressure- shifting well a lil late there more like 5500 is where i try to shift when i ran my 16.7 stock i was shifting at 5300-5500 and geting off the line is crucial - not ur R/T but ur 60ft times are big they affect ur whole run, got to get off to a good start. try power shifting? just keep practiceN

i just got some more play time with my SAFC and now i getN into the 15's easy and all i have is HP racing race header, full 2.5 exhaust with muffler, AEM intake and SAFC 2nd ed. brembo rotors, and H&R springs (1.4'' drop is all i got out of them )

plan to add Optima battery (not sure yellow or red top yet), MSD ignition as soon as they come in.
then plan on the AEM alt. pulley and the FC water/crank pulley set then we'll see what i run

just tryN to get into the 14's (mids prayN) without tryN to touch the inside of the engine
