mid-high 15's generally. Since it's a 6spd, it varies with the driver, plus where you race it. In florida, you'll probably end up being in the low 16's from the higher temps.

I was looking at a magazine (MotorTrend I think) yesterday and they said the Focus SVT was doing something like 16.1 - 16.3 on the 1/4 mile..

it depends on the options. dave is one of the only people ive ever heard claim a 15.3 stock... without t/c and some weight loss i could see maybe a 15.5 but 15.3 would have to be a perfect launch in perfect track conditions. someone on a dif focus forum was running a 14.9 on the bottle... the bottle generally adds more than .4 of a sec if its a decent shot. but yeah. 15.5-16 seems to be what ive been hearing. i was messin with an svt on the highway yesterday and he wasnt pullin at all i jumped about half a car length on him from 50-70 he had catback on it too.

Yah, I got timeslips of the 15.3, and it was only a couple days after i bought car. But you really have to drive the sh** out of the car to get it close to that. It was a 15.3 @ like 91.7 I think.

60---2.292
330---6.470
1/8---9.905
MPH---69.74
1000---12.790

Solaris, i'm worse off than you lol, the only thing different between our mods, is you have the intake and tb, and you run a full second faster than me, know what sucks more, i have the atx. Amazing how an atx can be a half second off your E/T, gah. I want a 5spd!

keep with it but building up an auto is a bizzle. I dunno i've gave up on the strip my goals are nothing but autox now. I am actually happy with the mods i've done thus far and feel that when i get my Ebach pro-system and new set of wheels/tires for summer/autox driving i'll be good to go. Ok i'm off topic the only time i was ever at the track no svts were there so i couldnt' race one. I've raced them on the street and it's pretty cool i take them off the line and through 2nd but they pull on my through 3rd but not by much i feel that it's a pretty good match. But ya 16.8 with mods has to suck =\ atx = [?|] gl to ya bro

The 2dr ZX3 runs 16.7 ....not the SVT. The SVT ran 15.8 in Motor Trend, and that seems to be generally what they do.

Consumer Reports sucks when it comes to car testing. They don't abuse the cars when they launch them, they just put the car in gear and hit the gas. They have different opinions when they test cars too like a while back they gave the BMW X5 top ranks for handling and now they tested it again same model and everything but now it's last with "unpredictable handling". I never use there info about cars only reliability.
