Went to the Bristol FFW this weekend and did a best MPH of 108.69 with not the best conditiond but she was flying

That makes my best times 13.400 @ 108.69

Where was every one

Going to try to install the intake in the next week or two and have it ready for Cordova IL FFW

Impressive trap speed! I'd say once you get the launch sorted out, low-mid 12's should be available. Nice job!

So far everything is well with the Tranny no problems at all we just have to keep pushing it to see where its limits are

But with Tom's kit, is it really an SVT Focus anymore? Isn't major engine work done to get those numbers? I.e., the Focus drag car is NOT a focus. It's a focus station wagon body, but that's it.

Well, I have to disagree. He is running all stock internals with full street trim. Is he not? That to me is an SVT. Since svt tuned this zetec with stonger internals and what not. I believe he is even using the stock intake mani. I agree on the focus drag car. But, tom is running just everything stock (internal). That to me is still an svt focus. Now if he were to use a different block and what not I would agree. But, as of now it is still an SVT with a Turbo set up on it.

Sure its still an SVTF. Full interior, probably street tires, all stock internals, etc.

The only thing it has is clutch, lsd, turbo kit, and i think thats about it.

Yeah no joke. I thought that too till I started researching f/i options, and found that tom was running with this thing with stock internals, full street trim, and DOT tires!!

You may not realize he has his ZX3 which is built big time and then he has the SVT which he bought from I think the first guy he did the svtf turbo for. But maybe you did know he had both. Just clearing it up in case you didn't know. So the actual svtf is a true svt. However I think he changed the flywheel, clutch and differential or whatever it is called. Other than that I from everything I have read it is all stock motor.
