Well to beat a car like an SRT-4 you need alot, no bolt ons will help you.

You need to match him power for power, what kind of $ do you have to spend.

The turbo is gonna be your best bet - if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Not cheap though, and the SRT-4 is fast right from the dealer and only gets faster with mods. Has your friend done anything to his car? You can put a turbo and exhaust and CAI and whatnot on your Focus and probably keep up with him or even beat him, but if he's modded his car then things get that much harder for you...

Srt-4 is quick and will smoke you in a straight line, and it even handles almost as good as the focus, You will need something called a turbo to beat him, get together about 5 grand and we can help you kick his butt, otherwise, in a straight line I;m afraid he has you

Yeah but he mentioned in the "Best Turbo" thread that money is not an object - if that's true then he wants Tom's kit I would think.

Ha, well you never know. [rolleyes] Maybe he's got money saved up or something. But yeah, most people say money is no object UNTIL they see how much it's gonna cost to properly turbo or supercharge their car...

Exactly, money is no object, whoa $ 5500 is way to much, I only have $ 327.02 saved.

Forecd Induction is the only way the Vortech Supercharger or Tom's turbo will let you be able to do it or you can take him into some really hard twisties and hope for the best

Uh-huh I know what you mean focal, what those of us penniless people like myself need to do is to befriend someone for whom money really is no object, and then convince them to pay for the thing, or give you a loan. [:D] I'm still hoping the guy who owns the driving school I work for will spring for some SRT-4's, after all they are Neons and that's almost exclusively what he buys. They'd be great for teaching stick-shift and we need a new stick-shift car. [rolleyes]

LoL thats a great car to learn stickshift on when first learning I don't think its a good idea to learn stick on a faster car its harder cause your not only worried about shifting, clutch, etc. but then also very worried about the throttle and bursting forward in speed

yeah, I know but that's the only rationalization I can come up with for getting one, that they are a stick and our current stick car is a serious POS. Oh, and I guess that they come in red - our cars are always red with white logos.

Sorry there buddy but it's gonna take an act of God for that to happen.
At least I don't think so...
