For one that guy with the civic must either be running REALLY low boost or have something wrong with the motor.

as for comparable cars...a 160 whp Focus would be somewhat in between a most "sport compacts" out on the market, including specVs, Si's and what not...and the next level of performance such as stock RSX type S's, and 1.8T's.

actually hes running 8 pounds of boost but theres 2 dynos in maine and 1 closed because of insurance and now theres only one so i guess there arent too many places around that are good tuners. or people that know what they are doin.

what he means is that you should think about where you're asking your question. this part of the board is to ask questions pertaining to nothing else other than making a Zetec faster! Pit Stop is for general car questions such as yours here.


Same goes for your "why am I a rookie" post. I know you're new here... so I ain't slammin you.... but just take a look around and figure out which place is best to ask your questions. Stop for a bit and take a look around... read other peeps posts... get a feel for it.

My ZX3 with me in it weighs 2800 lbs. There are several online calculators that can help you figure out how fast a car is. Each of them are going to give you a diffent answer though..
160hp, 2800 lbs. Should be about a 15 second 1/4 mile...

Hey man if your from central pa there is a lot of fast cars around here Mcnew's is running 13.96. and I have seen a bunch of turboed hondas that are running in the 12's. I know somebody who has a VW Golf 1.8t he is running 25 pounds of boost, and he is on the verge of blowing up his motor and I would say he is pushing well over 300 whp. I don't have any of his time slips but I have seen him run 13.6 but he can't brake that time because he can't get it to hook up. You just have to look more to see some fast cars in pa.
