Quiet power adders.

My goal for this car is simply to keep up with and hopefully just barely beat a 2013 Civic Si (I work for Honda and have to show dominance). Right now the only mods to my car consist of an E Focus RMM, a 93 octane tune from Injected Engineering and a Green air filter with a snorkel delete. With those mods the Slowcus was able to squeeze out two back to back 15.3x passes at 91.xx MPH. I feel that shows with a little bit more of a push my goal is achievable.

This car is my daily driver so I will not stand for loud droning exhaust and such. That being said, what else could I do to the car to squeeze just a bit more out of it while still being able to come home at 3 AM and not wake the neighborhood or take a 150+ mile drive and not have to blast the radio?

weight reduction will help acceleration

nitrous is quiet

That doesn't really add any power.

Plus that(snorkel delete with drop in air filter) is already done to my car.

I also want to stay away from nitrous as I do not have enough experience with it to put it on a car I use every day.

Magnaflow catback is very quiet. I work midnight so leaving at night quietly is a must. At first my Cobb drop in filter was louder than the exhaust but gutted the pzev cat and the volume is perfect right now. Noticed a little more pick up after deleting the cat as well.

NOS is the best way to go esp since you have a tune. That is for when you need the power. I had NOS on my V6 fusion and was fun to blow the doors off some unsuspecting drivers.

Consider a custom exhaust with dual resonators and a muffler. I've read good things about the Vibrant Ultra Quiet resonator (as far as removing rasp and/or drone from an exhaust), add an additional bottle style resonator and a good muffler, and you may have a freer flowing yet relatively quiet exhaust. (not likely quiet as stock, but perhaps not too much louder)

A stock 2012+ Focus SE will not beat a 2013 Civic Si. The Si is good for mid 14's at 95ish mph with a good driver. Acceleration-wise, it's about on par with a stock ST.
