This is my wife's sign on she has a focus, I own a 2004 tiburon v6 6-speed, to racerdan you don't have a clue what this car will do. The 2004 is rated at 172hp and 181tq. I have cold air intake, headers, and lowering springs, stock everything else. The car also has 4.40 gears from the factory. You say 14's isn't possible, i have two bolt ons. I run 14.798 fastest run. I average 14.89 consistant.

I remember when the Tib first came out with the new body style, I think that is when they over rated there numbers. Any ways, when ever they did over rate it I remember they did get in some trouble for it. It was kind of funny them jacking the numbers up and getting caught for it.

I still say a ZX3 will not be able to keep up unless the Tib driver is a half wit and you the focus driver is the NHRA reigning champ. Now the SVT vs. GTV6 stock for stock it would have to be a drivers race. The Tib makes up for its chubbyness in TQ... something that most foci lack. But still satanding true to my statement that a GTV6 will smoke a regular ole foci(non SVT). The best pull I've ever had in my focus was 15.63 with a perfect r/t and 2.17 60ft with all my mods in my mod list, and I only got two pulls in my wifes car and her's hit a 15.28 with just an intake and added weight... not to mention I had a horrible r/t and 60ft time. Now that she has her exhaust and sts I assume she'll be in the 14's... if she practices more.

Ford did that also... I think it was with a Cobra in 97 or maybe the GT... I can't remember. They did catch some sh!t for it though.

I didn't hear about the cobra thing but it figures. I'm glad that they are getting caught doing it (yes even good ol ford) it will keep them and other more honest in the future. Also, hell I thought we were talking about a SVT vs a Tib. I don't think the non SVT would stand a chance in hell. I think the SVT would be a toss up, but with a good driver (I'm not) I am pretty sure the SVT would take a Tib.
