Not trying to shoot down the 10 sec focus in the other thread (sweet foci by the way, wish mine was that fast), just representing for my dad's buddy since he's signed up on here but hardly ever posts. This is Joe Morgan's 8 sec 2000 focus wagon. He still has all the interior pieces except the rear seat. The radio still works along with the alarm system as well. Last time i talked to him he said he was only pushing a lil above 800hp at somewhere between 24-28psi, but he has had his engine dynoed and it put down 1100hp+ at 44-46psi, he just said he couldn't get his trans to hold up to the power. But anyways.....here's some pics and vids.






Esslinger 2.3L turbo with just about everything done to it. And yes, last time he was here in atlanta we gave him a coolant reservoir cover to make it look better lol.




Nitrous is only sprayed to spool the turbo up faster at the starting line. It's not used down the track.




I tried to ride with him down the track while he was here but i didn't have a racing suite and helmet.






8.3 sec run


8.6 sec run

Comments and questions are welcome.

Well one thing i found funny was that one of my buddy's out here races a mustang in the NMRA and his name is Joe Morgan. I guess it's a popular name lol.

I've always wondered if Mr. Morgan was a member here. It's about time someone put up a vid of that wagon in action!

It's not a regular 2.3L block. It's a complete Esslinger 2.3L motor. I don't know what all is done to it, i'd have to ask Joe. If i remember correctly, there was also one of these motor's that was put on a drag car for the 4-cylinder drag car NOPI class. I saw it last year at NOPI and the guy said it was pushing 1400hp+ with 40psi+.

The guy at NOPI told my buddy he could have the motor as it sits for $15,000.

Ya, like Frush said, it's the same guy. He had a turbo ranger before he had the pinto as well. The pinto used to run 10's in the 1/4 on nitrous.
