How much low end can you expect from a 2.3? A CAI should help a lot with low end torque though if thats what you want. Very good numbers too less then a 15% loss in the drivetrain thats great news!

those are pretty good numbers, that's less than 20% loss, the se-r with 170hp makes on the dyno about the same number.

Very nice numbers. I'm getting mine dyno'd within a couple of weeks too, hopefully I'll have numbers just as good as you.

When I had my Focus I had abudy with an automatic Focus. We used to race whenever he got a new mod (mine was sock).

He got an Injen intake - I beat him
He got a Borla exhaust - I beat him
He got a header (don't remember the brand) - I beat hm
He got underdrive pulleys - I beat him.

Finally he got rid of the Slushbox and got a Focus SVT, I didn;t bother trying :D

All those mods couldn't make an Automatic Focus ZX3 beat a Manual Focus ZX3.

Well you should try dropping 800.00 on a intake, header, flex-pipe and an off-rode pipe only to get a exhaust note that sounds like a pissed off bee. Took that stuff off fast sold it and saved for the Mazda3.

12% hp and 10% torque loss, if anyone cares.

For sure, the torque converter will rob at least 10Hp
- So where's the dyno graph? I would be interesting is seeing the auto numbers. I highly doubt the loss is 28-30%. Thats asinine. In fact the loss is between 18-20%.
