Is that the 3.1L v-6 or the 3.8 your talking about? My moms 3.8L Buick keeps up the 3.1L camaros (dont ask how I know....) The focus will give the camaro a run for its money, as for who comes out on top, all driver.

I've raced an automatic V6 Camaro with my Focus. I lost, but not by as much as you would think, especially considering I have an ATX. I was suprised how well I kept up with him.

Oh what do you know, a 95 camaro? I have one of those actually. There were two v6 engines. If it is the 3.4L like mine had...you will own him unless he has a lot of junk done...and I mean own him.

If it is the 3.8L (green state car in 1995...1996 they were all 3.8L for the v6), it will be close. With intake and exhaust I had no issue beating my friend's 5 speed 3.8L firebird and it had intake and full 3in exhaust. Should be the same with the camaro. If you mess up, he will pass you ( I only took my friend by prolly 2-3 tenths in those races).

You should win. The I have out ran many a 6cyl Camaro, and my buddy has out ran a lot of them in his 6cyl mustang (98). There to heavy, and the Focus is to light.

Um...not against any regular 3.8L camaro I've seen. Just don't mess up the launch and it should be close at the least.

If you can drive and get a good launch, I think it will be close. My ATX hung with a V6 camaro...I lost, but not by as much as i was expecting...
