Hi there,

Just joined up in search of some US Stock rear lights for my new car, thought I would show you some pics seeing as you don't get this model over there. In fact only 500 of these cars were made!!

115bhp @ the flywheel, and 185lbs/ft torque! On overboost (for short periods when you press your foot to the floor) it will peak at 24psi. Normally it holds around 20psi. Plus I get 50mpg!!





Imperial Blue - the best colour there is!!

Cheers

Matt

Yet again, America is screwed with the Focus models. Gorgeous car! It shouldn't be hard at all to find US lights, either. It's weird how people over here want the Euro lights, and people on the other side of the pond want ours.

Because, until a few weeks ago, the Diesel in American had a lot of Sulfur in it, making it near impossible to pass emmisions on a small motor.

Horsepower is a function of torque. That means torque is independant. If it could keep making torque at higher RPMs, it would make a lot more HP. All diesels have a low Rev limit.

50 mpg......don't think Exxon is gonna let that happen anytime soon! More torque than hp is cool concept though, does it pull crazy off the line?

It does go well, and on the congested roads it is faster than a normal petrol Focus, and it has better in gear acceleration than a ST170/SVT.

It has a 5k RPM redline, and really starts to pull about 2k. Gives a nice shove in the back :)

Your car looks great ! [thumb] I'd kill for a nice turbo diesel drivetrain in our Foci, but I don't ever see that happening with the latest diesel fuel and emission restrictions/requirements coming up. Maybe next generation, who knows.

The clean fuel is here now. It's cleaner than Europe's. The door is now open.

p0sitivevibez, the pull off the line isn't that great. It would be beaten by a 2.0 petrol, however once rolling, I can sometimes spin the wheels in 3rd :)
