WHats up? does anyone know anything about these the SVT Focus? like how fast they are? do you all think it should be able to beat the legend. i was kinda racing a modded one last nite, from about like 25mph till about 90 mph and we were pretty much even. then this tool starts yelling over to me to see if i wanted to race for money. do you think i shouldve done it? i have a mostly stock 91 5 speed coupe

You realize that Steeda is a Ford tuner and SVT is the performance division of Ford right? Two separate companys.

The SVT Focus sounds like a hot little car. Grassroots Motorsports had a great article comparing the SVT Focus to the new Civic Si, Sentra SE-R V-Spec, Mazda Protege MP3, and VW GTI 1.8T. They spoke very highly of the Ford.

No idea how you woulda faired against that particular Focus. There are plenty of people out there building very fast Focuses now.

Steeda is an independent tuning house that usually works with mustangs as their main business. They are in the Same category as Saleen, and Kenny Brown etc. It seems as though the person started with an SVT Focus as a base and add on and change different parts. Intakes, exhausts, body kits and a whole range of parts are all avail. for the focus from Steeda. Starts with 170 hp, so its decent out the door.

In the April issue of Car and Driver they did a review on a Jackson Supercharged Focus, it was pathetic. It gained like 1/10 of a second in the 1/4 and that was it. A total waste of money. Whre did you hear 250+hp????
