V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Okay so my friend just got this blue SVT Ford Focus.

When he first told me he got a Focus I kinda laughed a little but then he said it was the SVT and I got a little worried.

But then I found it was a four cylinder and I got some relief.

His engine looks and sounds nice, but I don't like that exhaust sound he has,.. too bumblee-ish. worse than my V6's lol.

But I was thinking, if we were to race, On the track of course, who would do better?
He mentioned it had a supercharger in it but I'm not sure.

It IS an SVT but I don't know.

We were playing around revving up the engines determining which sounded better, and then my brother rolled up with his 5.7L Vortec V8 packin Chevy 2500 and blew us all away haha.

Anyways, he mentioned that he just got the clutch, flywheel, everything and spent $2600 doing it. It was apparently some high end performance stuff.

I was just curious, if we were to race, how do you think we would do?
What is your opinion on the SVT Focus?

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

O.o I didn't think that the focus SVT's had the charger on them, or maybe I'm wrong. It must have been some really high end **** 'cause i've never seen a clutch cost more than 600-800.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Well, he told me $2,600 for everthing and that's including labor for installing it and such.

Yeah I looked it up and sure enough they do.
A supercharged 4-cylinder.
Interesting.

They only make about 170hp though, which is awesome considering the size.

The air intakes really intrigued me.
There is one located at the front towards the front end where the grill is located and another at the left side of the engine bay stickin up.
They suck (in a good way) big time!
It was like having your fingers stuck inside a vaccum cleaner.

Pretty sweet.

This says nothing about a charger. They do have VCT, though, which is pretty sweet.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

There was a roots blower option for them. It's a mini Eaton blower on top (Jackson Racing sold it aftermarket for awhile). They are quick little buggers. The real way it would mop up a Mustang is in the turns. They drive like they're on rails.

A few years back one of the Sport Compact magazines took an SVT Focus and the Terminator of the same year... and then took the price difference and dumped it into the Focus. At the end, they ran them in all the 'normal' comparisons (1/4 mile, 0-60, 60-0, lateral skid pad etc....) Focus walked all over the Terminator in every event for the money.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

they are NA and rather slow in a straight line, he wont be much slower if not any slow than the V6 but stock they are pretty slow, they do handle good.

You think so? People look at that concept wrong. Your buying a Platform not a street monster. You pay for the name, r&d, and platform.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

I'm just sayin' dollar for dollar, the end result showed the Focus out performing the Terminator at the $$ level you have to play at. Seems like an easy choice to me.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Yup if its just about money I can buy a POS notch back all rusted out, drop a motor in it and beat the crap out of and run 10s/track it/etc for dirt cheap... but its all in how you want to perform I guess.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Back to the point at hand...

The SVT focus is an N/A 4-cylinder (2-litre i believe), making roughtly 160-165 peak HP and around 130ft-lbs of tourgue...They are definitely quick little cars & handle similar to a Mini...

So straight out of the box, the V6 Mustang would beat the SVT Focus by maybe 2-3 car lengths at most...I would guess that the SVT focus is a high 15s to low 16s car while the stock v6 mustang would be mid-15's to low 15's for typical drivers...

The 04 Civic Si (which a buddy of mine had) has similar performance to the SVT Focus, and Brad (aka Lowflyn) beat that Civic Si in the 1/8th mile by about 2 car lengths as I recall...However Brad's v6 was pretty far beyond stock, so it would have been a much closer race stock for stock...

That being said, I think the Mustang should win slightly, but it could definitely be a driver's race...

Of course, this is all straight line racing...If you throw in a few twisties, the SVT Focus would win by a long shot...

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

My biggest issue with the SVT Focus is the clutch assembly. They do not last long at all and are extremely hard and expensive to replace (as seen in above post).

All that aside they are some fun little cars. Is it a 4 or 2 door Focus?

But...stock for stock it will be close either way, just don't try to go in turns.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Well apparently the SVT Focus fuel pumps are pretty good, as a lot of people use them in their mustangs.

Did the SVT version come in a 4 door, I only thought they came in a hatchback?

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

It's a 4 dr. and it's Sonic Blue (sweet color). i asked him if we was going to do any mods to the engine but he said it was already fast enough and he'd rather spend money on a audio system.

The interior is pretty awesome.
He's not planning on doing any racing or anything, and the whole race thing between me and him was kind of a hypothetical thing we don't really plan on going to a strip anytime soon (though it would be cool.)
So, it seems like a real fun daily driver.

It'll be funny when he has to replace the clutch assembly again due to the fact that it is his first time to drive a stick and he has no clue how.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

On a track with turns... I'd be betting on the Focus, unless you drive like a maniac. Straight line... 'Stang. Either way, it'd be a neat race to watch. Especially if it had some longer straights to it.

I doubt it, the focus don't have the hp or superior handling to do it.

A regular focus, by all means... No.

Either way, I was just saying my personal opinion. Most likely just a driver's race.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Wrong! Mustang V6 hands down, on either track! A Focus has great handling, but it is def not far enought superior as to wax a car the is definetily quicker than it on the straight line.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Actually that's not true. The SVT Focus has an amazing out of the box suspension from from Ford. It will hand even a slightly modded (suspension-wise) Mustang it's own tail.

yeah if you don't know how to drive, if your good you can take a full size Diesel van and out run bmw's, motorcycles and such including the svt focus on roads like, say, Nurburgring, those here say that suspension is that important just don't know how to drive.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

true.. But a novice driver, (pardon me op) vs another novice driver makes that point moot.

Like I said, and others.... Drivers Race.

A full size deisel van outrunning motorcycles anywhere much less in the the twistys must be racing against Harleys. I take corners in my bike hard enough to scrape parts off. (I'm on my 3rd set of footpegs.) The only place a full size deisel van is gonna beat me is to the bottom of a ravine.

Those bikes where just cruising along that track. Lemme see her pass some knee draggers.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Excuse my lack of knowledge in all things racing but wouldn't the V6 Mustang dust the focus easily? I know they have similar HP rating but the V6 mustang is a...well a V6 versus a 4 cylinder that has to get 150 hp by being supercharged? Well what I'm saying is doesn't the V6 give the Mustang a lot more torque? I know my Mustang despite only having around 150 hp has well over 200 torque against this ones 145.

I've owned 2 150hp cars before a altima and a mustang and the take off from stop was dramatically different. I mean isn't the torque basically what gives the V8 300hp cars advantage over the 300hp V6 turbos?

But like I said I don't know much about cars and racing in this aspect so feel free to correct me.

I know you guys are gonna talk mess about me on this one but Ive owned and raced Saturns before I got my Mustang. And yes i beat plenty of V6 mustangs in that car, both on the strip and on the streets. HorsePower and Tourqe are just part of racing. you also have to take into consideration the weight of the car and the driver in the seat. My saturn stock was at 124hp 122ft/tq but curb weight was only 2500lbs. Adding an intake header and free flwoing exhaust plus becoming a better driver got me into the high 15's before I got serious or stupid(depeninging on your point of veiw) and added nitrous. So could a SVT Focus beat a V6 Mustang? It is possiable. If its got a jackson supercharer it should. It just depends on the driver.

Are you sure they were racing? :p

Just kidding..

At the SCCA solo events our auto club at school hosted twice a year.. there was ALWAYS a saturn SC2 there, bone stock except for suspension, brakes and tires.. and it kept up with the evos (short track, tight corners, few acceleration areas - its one where you get up to speed and keep it up)

Then again I don't think the evo drivers did so hot.. I ran close to them in the BUICK, understeering and smoking tires the whole way


As for the SVT: It'd probably outturn you, definitely out stop you, might be close 1/4 mile.. but in the long run your v6 will own him as he hits up the shop for more of those 2600 repairs..

They'd only been out a year and a half when I left my job as a tech - and they broke down left and right - I saw tons of them (the only SVT tech at the shop..) and we were not a high-volume (car) dealer (we were 80%+ trucks, ocean town = construction town)

clutch was a big one, half shafts, oil consumption, oil smoke, oil leaks, shifter cables, evap.. Hmm.. people did abuse the balls off 'em though

Okay lets say you're the driver in both cars and you're racing against yourself. Everything you mod on your Saturn you mod on you V6 Mustang. Which you would win?

Saturn vs Mustang and me drving. Well if there was some sort of weird back to the future event and some how with out messing up the flow of history and I actully raced my self. I would have to say me in Saturn.

This is why....

It's has been over 2yrs sinced I actully raced any car. When I was racing the Saturn I was racing every week every night, weither on the streets or at the Track. I didnt care about anything else. All I wanted to do was race and get Faster. Since I raced that car so much I knew how to launch and when to shift that car. My best 1/4mile time was 14.7 on nitrous. Saturn: over 200Hp on Nitrous plus light as hell.

I never timed the Mustang. So I dont know what my time would be in the car as of right now. I do know that the Nitrous is not complete(working) and the car is heavy. I am not as good as I was back in the day. I dont know the car well enough. Minus the Nitrous witch is not working The Mustang is probabaly around 200hp also. Agian heavier car plus I am out of practice on racing. Saturn wins

Now If I actully started racing again like did back in the day and the nitrous was working. I would hope I would win the Stang. But the only way is to actully get on the track start racing again and run the Mustang on Nitrous. As of right now I am more into looks of the car then racing the car.

pictures of the Saturn.

Re: V6 Mustang vs. Focus SVT

Gotta love them saturns. My parents have an Ion 3, and it doesn't move like my Mustang, in speed or corners.. it's too top-heavy, needs a good swaybar... almost died in it once.

Then again, its a value car, and for the value, its a hell of a car.
