The BRZ runs about 14.7-14.8s and a srtock Focus has been run to a 15.9 so you do need a second to run with it and I think you're close.

Wow poor BRZ its running so rich. With a tuned BRZ it would be 190+whp car with no mods. The bottom line look how the Afr dips into the 10s...

Hey just wondering, did you get a shop to do your exhaust or did you do the dual exit on your own?

Interesting thread. Makes me wonder what the real power of the 2.0 GDi is?

In North America it is rated as 160hp and here in South Africa it's 125kw yet the Focus is a global car. Only difference I can think of is that we only have 93 octane and 95 octane available.

I would love to get my hands on a 2.0 GDi and do some dyno testing for you guys but here are just no models available and the few owners out here are so scarce and in hiding

Technically if your fuel is sold based on the RON number 93 octance RON (research octane number) is about 4-5 points higher than the Antiknock index which is an average between the research octane number and the motor octane number, the two competing test methodologies for comparing the anti knock properties of the fuel. Ergo 93 RON is the same as 87-88 octane fuel sold in the U.S. and the 95 octane is equalivent to 90-91 AKI octane fuel sold in the U.S.

So the fuel is not better or worse, but the headline octane number sounds better there than it really is. Most countries use the RON number as the headline figure on the pump where as the U.S. uses an average of the two methods.

Ergo your base fuel is the same as our regular fuel give or take 1 point on the anti knock index

Just to pipe in here, my friend's bone-stock FR-S and my MK3 Focus w/K&N and snorkel delete are surprisingly close in a straight line, with no distinct advantage between the two. I'd call it a draw.

That's pretty good considering FR-S are supposed to be 200hp and 2800 lbs. if I remember correctly. Anyway you guys can get to the drag strip. I was going to go this year and never got around to it. I've had my TC light come on in third gear at times on dry pavement if I grab a gear just right. So we are making decent power still crossing fingers for tune though.
