i never really noticed how bad the focus accelerates when your going 40mph and i floor it. I was just wondering what kind of bolt ons would help this. I mean it shoots off the line great but the mid to end torque it struggles.

Thanx fellows p.s. i got a ZX3 if it matters

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">definitely pertinent. if youre in 4th going 40 and you want torque, drop to 3rd. correct me if im wrong, but when most ppl talk about power ranges for torque, they mean rpms in a given gear. i can get to 4th without producing very much torque by shifting at 2500 constantly and end up doing 40mph. alternately, i can rev higher and make 40 by 3rd gear, putting more torque to the ground.
