2007 Ford Focus w/manual vs 2004 Ford Mustang w/automatic

So my mom thinks that her Focus is faster than my mustang because hers is a stick shift. She keeps telling me to race her but when we have a chance she never does, I think she's bluffing.

My friend has a stick 2007 focus, mostly stock and the thing hauls off the line... i'd say you only hope is top speed.

You can borrow mine if you want to blow her doors off. But I'm sure you got it.

You need like 360 for a tuner plus tunes. Gears are like 200 plus install around 400 to 600
