Hey folks was wondering how much diffrence there is between my [b]1.6[/b] 04 focus and a [b]1.8[/b] of the same age. I find my 1.6 every bit as quick as my previous MK3 Cav 1.8, mind you the focus handels so much better so dont have to slow down on the bends as much ;)

My mates mp3 must have a real problem then he can have me on the straights but only just and round the bends i can close right up again and sometimes have to back right off so i dont go up the back of him. Think hes just a naff driver that and the fact i refuse to be beaten by a lesser ford.

Saying that ive nailed a mk6 fezzy zetec-s and thats supposed to have an identical engine to mine yet mine walked of and kicked up the dirt at it i just dont understand these things lol i thought the fex would just fly up the inside of me. Oh well i think the guys girlfriend weighed the car down :P

was she that fat lol as for 04 plate cars example 1.6 edge and a 1.8 edge

1.6= 98bhp 0-60 10.6 seconds 143nm torque and weigh 1171kg


1.8= 113 bhp 0-60 10 seconds 160nm torque weight 1195kg so an o4 plate 1.6 v 1.8 is pretty much even just a slight increase on the torque

bloomin hell my mk1 1.8 is quicker than the 04 plate
