I have a 2003 2.0 zts It has a shorty header high flow cat and stock exhaust after that. I also installed a cai on it. I got beat pretty decently today by a stock 04 zts with the 2.3. This is my wifes car on top of everything. I drive a 1998 Navy Blue Metallic Trans Am. So this car is the DD until spring when the srt4 caliber comes out and then shes outta this car. I was wondering if there was a cheap way to step the rev limiter back or if there was a focus tuner in the Manhattan Kansas Area or surrounding area that would be interested in doing it for low cost. This car is by no means a race car but I held the 2.3 until midway through third because it pulls all the way till right before the rev limter which i think is at about 6750 or so. Everytime I would rap it up I would pull slightly and as soon as I shifted it would pull back on me until in 3rd he went on by and that was all she wrote. This was from a dig as well and I put about a car on him from a dig because I can drive this car decently. My T/A goes 13.0 with a shitty 2.1 60 ft at about 110 so this car is just to screw with the local ricers. Anyways could somebody help me out?

Also are you saying you run 13.0 @110 with a 2.1 60 ft at the track? What kind of track it this?

Uh..he's obvoiusly running a 1/4 mile,and those are good numbers.He's making good HP(110mph trap speed) but having a little trouble putting it down on the track (13.0ET and 2.1 short times,probably running drag radials) That's a pretty fast Trans AM.Orange,try a focussport Xcal2 tuner.It will wake up the mods you have and make the lower end of your power band come alive.You can also have them raise the rev limiter.[strongman]


P.S. Mopar...move over,people are racing!

Ya its a zetec. There isn't any way that is any cheaper to do this? I was thinking maybe a mail order tune or something.

No cheapo way on a tune,unless you can catch one on Ebay,but it's tough to find one the same as your own ecu code.

Oh, in the Trans Am. That makes more sense. I thought those were the Focus's numbers and was highly doubting them. I see, sorry for the confusion.

If you may keep the Focus for another year I would put an aggressive cams, preferably Crower2s, Cat2s, Comp2s, or FordRcing3s and a custom tune. Since I heard a lot of good things about them. I'm gonna start tinkering inside the engine of my car soon and I may go Cat2s.

BTW, one of our moderators here named Tom Lesperance has an 11 sec. focus or may be now a 10 sec. focus (probably THE fastest focus not only of the east coast but the whole nation).
