On of my good friends has just got him self 52 plate 2.0 focus.

Had a few plays with him and my 1.7 puma was a quicker everytime, and he wants more power!

I know on the pumas you can get the racing puma manifolds and get it mapped to make the racing puma power as they are the same engine.

Is this the case with the 'normal' 2.0 focus and the st170?

2.0l Foci (sp?) are slow considering the engine arent they? I assume they made them that slow so the ST would look so much faster?

But then similar story at Vauxhall with the 1.8 Astra being faster than the 2.0, but IIRC that is due to different gearbox ratios?

I really doubt that the person can drive then. 130bhp as apposed to your 90. And they aren't THAT heavy.

I doubt that, my 1.6 sport is neck and neck with my mates 1.8 focus

I'm guessing your 1.4 sport is fairly tuned?

according to the stats the 1.8 is 9.9 to 60 and the 2.0 is 8.9 so the sport is somewhere in the middle

Not much heavier than my puma tbh

Saying that though i think i get get my corsa off the line quicker than the puma. It has this stupid traction thing you cant turn off
