Didn't see a thread regarding 0-60 Times and now that I finally have a focus that works...long story but I've been thru 3 including a manual and 2 dct's.

My current Focus is a 2014 SGM DCT with the sport package.
Current mods: K&N drop in w/ snorkel delete and 91 octane tune from injected. DCT tune for my car is still being worked on so keep in mind it's engine only at this time.

0-60 Times
Stock: 8.1 Avg of 3.
Tune and K&N: 7.2 Avg of 3.

Hoping that when I get the DCT portion the snappier shifts can land me in the high 6 or at least 7 flat.

Mods to come later this year are exhaust (undecided brand), maybe a real intake, RMM, drop, race header.

Have a buddy with a 08 civic si running I/E/H and flash pro. He hasn't ran at a track but I've seen similar mods run 14.8-15.3 driver depending. I think a full bolt on tuned focus can hit that.

You should be able to do high 14s no prob with full boltons. I did 7.4 stock and 6.7 with mods listed in sig, i am manual tho. I have a thread on it somewhere.

My manual had a spectre cone filter and the 91 tune and I was able to hit a 6.7 0-60 but the trans had a reverse issue since right after I bought it. Ford could never duplicate it so I traded it back in. I don't regret the DCT but I miss 3 pedals. My 1st DCT was tuned only and then out of no where at 900 miles the DCT got locked into neutral even tho it was in drive. Ford reset the TCM and got it to work again but I didn't want the car back so they bought it back after much argument. The car was on the stock tune when it locked up though.

I'm sure once I add the DCT tune to the car it will hit high to mid 6's 0-60 as the car cannot rev to 7k as of now and the shifts are slow. The DCT will chirp 2nd after the trans tune

Yup should be quicker with a tune for sure. There is a guy running 15.0 with injected tune so with more mods 14s should be possible.

I saw that a bit ago. It's promising to take down some modded Vtec's. This is the first time I have done a naturally aspirated car in 7 years since my MK1 Zetec. Every other car I've had was boosted.

I have an uncle in Ovideo. I personally live near UCF, but I ride out to the track every once in a while, used to go all the time in my Camaro, but it also made nearly 500 at the wheels. Join the group Florida Focus on FB, they just had a meet in Daytona and we try to meet every couple months, I think the Daytona meet had 15-20 cars. I personally haven't been to one yet, I got my car not that long ago, the Daytona meet was only the second one I heard about since I got my car but I know a lot of people who do go out and say its a blast, I met at least 4 people personally in Florida because of those meets and they always lend a helping hand, I myself and probably anyone else in the group is more then willing to help you out too man!

Awesome, be sure to check out Dyno's car. Also you would be only the second 3rd gen at the meets so it would be cool if you came out, next one is planning for June. OR come out to Orlando SpeedWorld and let me know, if you need to you can couch surf at my place for the night.

At 15.0 you might be able to take down a 04-05 GTO, I held one off just the other day from a roll at Orlando race wars, we rolled from 20 and he pulled about half a car instantly but never pulled more. From a dig he killed me though.

Lol damn. My SRT use to walk away from GTO's and Mustang GT's. Kept side by side with a GT500 with minor bolt ons just before I got rid of it.

Bs not with 91mph trap speed. They are slow but not compared to n/a 4 cylinder. They trap 100-103. Unless the guy was not pushing it hard.

If the GTO was in 2nd gear for some reason I see it as possible. As 1st gear is generally long in them and 2nd would've been weak at that low of rpm

I don't see how a high 14's car is much faster than a sprayed low 15's car, espically when my spray just makes me spin off the line.

They are that slow, they run a 14.8 in Florida.

My cousin had one with a t56 and I owned an 04 for about two months, my 94 Camaro Z28 was faster bone stock.

It was in first, my car kicked to first and instantly sprayed since it was over 3700 RPM's the cut off is 6200, right before the shift and kicks right back on after the shit, WOT switch controlled 50 shot on a basically stock auto Focus.

He did not shift aggressively and was quiet surprised when I stayed near him. I wish I got a video, but they do not let you record while driving.

I wasn't arguing with you. I was just stating some possibilty. I guess Florida heat can slow them down as 6.0 GTO's run 4.7 to 60 and low 13's according to car and driver.

My SRT was stage 3 with 50 trim turbo.

I have never seen one that fast, mine ran a 14.5 with some bolt on's and that was worthy of a few pats on the back. One of my friends that drive a Z28 last year when I did now drives a 06 (I think) 6.0 and runs like a 14.3 or so. Im not saying its not possible, rather I just haven't seen it personally. I actually never knew they were that fast, the GTO was cool but I never got obsessed with it like my other cars. It just, wasn't for me I guess. At the time I was really ready for a turbo'd 4 cylinder, and since money was tight I decided to go nitrous instead, which I don't regret, other than sound, I wish I had the whistle.
