Sport Compact car did a test on a Supercharged 04 Tibouron a couple months ago. It went 14.7 with a Supercharger and exhaust. That was in California on 91 octane. Tibourons hear at the drag strip dun low 16's I have seen one run a 15.9 and that was the quickest. It is rated at a 15.9 1/4 mile stock

I saw that article and it has got to be horribly wrong on the numbers... check out newtiburon.com. I've talked to a few of the SC Tibs and they sure as hell run better than 14.7. Look at my slip posted earlier. I ran a 15.2 with a CAI and extra subs. Add an exhaust, headers and few other bolt ons and I'd be knee deep in the mid to low 14's. Add a small 75 shot of nitrous with some good tuning and I'm sure I'd be in the 13's. I'll let you know as soon as my Zetec can keep up with the Tib... once that happens I'll start doing some more to the tib.

Does he have any mods? I think the PZEV can take it stock, what do you think? I'm planing to hunt one down here in my region, it seems like a 00-02 (exhaust, rims, probably intake,bodykit) what do you guys think, my car is stock. Any help aprecciated.

Intake and exhaust, I believe it would be a drivers race... as soon as we get it in the mail we will be installing a turbo kit from Alpine Developments.

I ran a Tib last night...beat it on a roll....keep in mind i have a SVT. But i will say this...there is no replacement for displacement...no matter how much you mod a 2l zetec, the v6 tib will make more power once modded. regular zx3 won't be a stock v6 tib w/o alot of bolt ons. The saving grace the focus has is it's weight advantage. If you could put the tib on a serious diet there would be no way for us to keep up w/o doing our v8 swap...but that's a diff story all together.

Remember folks...u can go as fast as you want to go...just depends how much money you want to spend. Also remember...there is always, and i mean always, someobody faster out there!

They are chubby bastards but very tourquy. I can break traction from a roll just by mashing the pedal in the tib... what can I say I love Foci and Tibs.

I spanked some wanna-be-thug in a Tib GT-V 6 by about 1-1/2 cars by 3rd gear. Not to bash but I dun think your ZX-3 would win.

I raced a guy with a 6 cyl tiburon with an exhaust and intake. We raced from a 10mph roll, getting onto the highway with him in front of me, and I beat him pretty easily up to 110 or something, by quite a few lengths (yeah, street racing, sorry. It was on the highway with no cars around at all at around 12 at night, no danger to anyone but ourselves...and for the record, I dont like to street race anymore). We talked after, he just said my car was quick, no excuses as to why he lost or nothing. Not bashing tiburons or anything, just telling my story.
