My current performance mods are in my sig. I was told that what I've got isn't putting out that much more horsepower. How much more of a difference would it make to add a 65mm t.b., & a screamin demon coil pack?
With most tunes, your peak horsepower wont increase substantially, but midrange is improved immensely. Never had a before and after dyno but I had heard with Waynes tune there is approx 15-20hp increase in the low to mid range where a focus lacks the most power. Def a worth while mod especially since you have a decent amount of other mods. Oh and the coil pack most likely wont gain any hp but help your car run alot better and unless you are very heavily modded, a larger TB isnt going to net much gain either, has better response but i literally barely noticed a thing from stock to 65mm.Bizzy_13 said:Thanx yo. I am planning on getting a tune @ Massive Speed cruise in in June. That will give me nice gain? How about the coil pack, and t.b.?
I'm not "hll bent" on anything. I was just asking a question, if you reread my first post here. And basically why I said I wouldn't really go for the cams is it just seems to be a lot of hoopla to go through for Zetec performance, wich lets face it, it's never gonna be a rocket ride. lol. It's not a money issue more than a b.s. issue. Im not really tying to make a super fast race car, (if I were I wouldn't have bought a Focus) I'm just trying to give it a little more energy, and touchier throttle response to make it a little more fun to drive.SkaAddict said:So you'd rather waste the money on stuff that really isn't going to do anything for you...? For the cost of a TB (~$250) and coil + wires (~$150), you could get a set of stage 1 cams (which is about as far as you should go on a stock head w/ATX) and adjustable gears, which will give you dyno-verifible power gains, unlike the TB and coil, which will just make the engine rev faster and give you marginally better gas mileage.
But to each his own...if you're hell-bent on getting the TB and coil, go for it, its not going to hurt anything.
