Sorry this is wishful thinking with a small amount of money. That's a 13 second car. I think your best bet of keeping up is FI.

Maybe FI and a shot of NO2. The WS6 is one bad mofo. As much as I love the Focus I'd give her up for one in a heartbeat.

Yeah, sorry for us to all be downers here, but you'd have to spend a lot of money to get into WS6 territory. Look at the specs for the 2001 model:

Top speed : 165 mph(estimated)
0-60 mph : 5.2 sec.(manual), 6.0 sec.(auto)
0- mile : 13.4 sec @ 106.2 mph(manual)
60-0 braking distance : 120 ft
200 ft skidpad : 0.88 g

That's bone-stock, no mods. Never been a big fan of the styling of that car (screams butt-ugly to me) but you have to got to respect numbers like that (except maybe for the handling numbers). Your best bet with a car like that is to get him onto a very twisty road and beat him by outhandling him on the curvy stuff.

We have a 2002 WS6 and a 2003 SVTF. Hahaha, sorry you'll need a few prayers and "as little money as possible" doesn't fit into this catagory. Maybe www.focus-power.com can help you. I'm a V-8 hata' but this car makes me think twice...

Edit - We once almost ran it with nitrous, we were told it could handle a 150 shot stock. Look out, make sure you know what you're racing. BTW - handling is typical RWD crap so maybe in the twisties you could take it.

Trans-am = Muscle Car
Focus = Economy Car
They are the total opposite. That's like trying to get the Trans-am to get 30+ MPG
You could maybe keep up with a V-6 but not a T/A, keep dreaming. You will need ALOT of $$$

No matter what you do to your Focus (aside from turbine engine, lol), that WS6 will snort you up its Ram Air nostrils and spit you out the dual exhaust. End of story.

You'd need a big boost custom turbo to run down an LS1 powered rwd car, sorry. Big boost isn't cheap either. To beat that T/A, expect to spend atleast 7grand.

Yeah, I saw a WS6 commercial a few years back, and I will never forget it...

It's nighttime, and a sports car (I think it was a Mustang maybe, but it doesn't really matter) is sitting at a red light. You hear this rumble, and a black WS6 pulls up behind it. The WS6 driver revs his engine... sucks the car up into the Ram Air nostrils and spits its smoldering carcass out the dual exhaust. I was laughing my ass off... it was hilarious. That was one of the best car commercials I have ever seen.

Now every time I see a WS6 behind me, I am like NOOOO, GO AWAY!!!!
