Talking Ford Focus RS8 Vs. Ford F-150 SVT Lighting

"The Ford Focus RS8 "5.0 Engine" Vs. The Ford F-150 Powered By SVT A.k.a. LIGHTING"

[Lighting]
A 5.4-liter SOHC Triton™ V-8 powers the 2004 SVT F-150 Lightning. The Triton™ V-8 is paired with an Eaton™ supercharger and water-to-air intercooler, providing 380 horsepower at 4,750 rpm and 450 foot-pounds of torque at 3,250 rpm.



[RS8]
Using the European Focus RS as a starting point, FRPP worked its engineering magic to mate its new, all-alloy, 5.0-liter 4-valve "Cammer" crate engine – cranking out a pavement-pounding 420 naturally aspirated horsepower – into the engine bay of the Focus. Although a handful of aftermarket firms have successfully mated Ford V-8 power with a Focus, the RS8 was built to show the versatility of a "Cammer" crate engine and "plug-and-play" engine electronics installation in a pure stock-looking Ford Focus.

That focus would waste the lightning, its all about power to weight ratio....

It's a picture of the concept L that never came out with the wrong engine pictured

And I'm going to be the bad guy here and say....
if the race is straight line then either L would take the edge

i would think the focus would take the L in a straight line not only is it putting down more power it has less weight giving it a better power to weight ratio.

It would be an interesting race to see take place. What are the numbers, what's the best 1/4 time the RS8 laid down ?
