I hit the 7200 limiter often. No damage to report, in fact I think the little 2.0 likes it.

Haha I abuse my girl and she keeps coming back for more. I like having the Focus and GTI now. The GTI has insane low and mid range power and the Focus has good Top End. Depends on my mood on what I want to drive. Although I have been driving the GTI mostly lately.

I never have any noise from the gears. But is hard to hear over spinning tires. Crappy chinese radials dont grip at all.

I beat an 8th gen before. But sometimes they edge me out. Depends on the driver really.

Yea, I figure I put about 155-165 at the crank now. My car weighs approx. 2650.

An 8th Gen Si has 197 crank HP and weighs like 2877 lbs.


But the factor to be considered is torque. The Honda has 139 lb. ft. and my focus has about say 145-150. That is the big difference.

NO THEY DONT.

Oh and I just remembered. My 08 would rev to 7K sometimes when she was stock. Like when I would have it in neutral and floor it. It would go to 7000 then settle to 6500.
