I kind of like it, but not enough power. It needs to be on part with the ST in terms of HP. I wonder how far a tune will take it.

Took the ST out for its first "beating" on Sunday and had a fuckin' blast. Went with the guys on the Starved Rock Cruise and we had a lot of high speed corners and straights. May have hit 100 once or twice

It is disturbing how often I hit 100mph in the Focus. Especially since i have disconnected the sound symposer and the car is dead silent.

Sometimes I'll just throw it in 4th to pass someone and mat it. Start coasting down and after I while I look down at the speedo and its still at 85-90 and all I can say is Ooops.

The apple size turbo is great for DD on the focus, plenty of power in every gear. We are interested to see the 2nd gen of the 2.0 maybe for 2016 model? and hopefully it will perform even better with mods.

@Boomba Racing, what kind of true hp/tq numbers could one see from the full set of light weight pulleys for the Focus ST? They are tempting me...

I love your rmm, now make a passenger side and trans mount.

I'll be ordering your shifter bushing set most likely tomorrow

The pulley kit really wakes up the motor and makes it rev quicker and much more responsive, the hp/torque gains are about 5+ hp/tq. If your going to install the bushings i would HIGHLY suggest getting the short shifter as well, it makes world of a difference. Give me a call or stop by and you can check it out first hand on our shop car.

Supposedly its going to be 330hp AWD.

if so, and not priced stupidly, I would very much consider it. I really like the usability of a 4dr hatch. If the subaru dealers hadn't been such 'tards I'd have a STI Hatch instead of the Focus.

Lol, sorry guys. I did alright but was sort of disappointed. I drove the car and the girlfriend drove the truck. Wanted to compare because the truck is a low 13 setup on street tire.

I was getting bad wheel hop and wheel spin but was able to manage two 13.7's one at 103 the other 104. But a shitty 2.2 60'



There's more in it, but not for this season on my sticky tire. I need spare wheels :

Launch control was way too low for a decent burnout. One of the ST guys I met up with mentioned to Freek Tune in a group talk about my issue and he responded to me on his own.



So, a little late but I have a new 100 map.

[email protected] just sent the first file last night for my 93 tune.

I know there is more in it because I was pulling on the truck. Just wish my 60' was better. I'm going to get either one or both of the top mounts and the helper air bags for next year though.
