whast up guys. Havent been in here in a while cause I ended up picking up a different car. But my g/f is picking up her 04 SVT Focus today and I was curious what a stock SVTF will run in the 1/4

They're really tricky to launch, like most four bangers and the six speed doesn't help any, so consistent times are hard to come by. I've seen times ranging from 16s down to high 14s. Mid 15s are what a good driver is suppose to be able to net, but it all depends on the car, the driver, and the track conditions.

high 14's on a stock SVTF? [???:)]
I was guessin more like high 15's
oh well, guess i'll have to help her break it in and take it to the track

Sorry, didn't read the post well. The high 14s are all run with the ORP. With the cat still in, I think the best anyone could do is a mid 15 with a good launch around 4k. If you've got traction control and don't pull the fuse, you'd be lucky to break into the 15's at all.

ohhh, ok. Yeah, I looked on MSN Autos and they said 16.02 which I thought could be right but I thought that they should be able to break into the 15's without a problem. The TC though does make that sound more accurate now that you said that.

I remember a while back when I was looking into the SVTF's that there were problems with the ECU having to be re-flashed quite a few times. Is this still a problem? Also, whats a good break-in period for this car before she starts going crazy with it? Are there any problems/facts that she should be aware of when she picks it up?
