Hey everyone, new to the forums and I've read some of the older 0-60 topics but I want to see if anyone was able to achieve better times? If so, what year, M/t or A/t, and modifications?

According to the program I'm using I'm consistently at 5.2 for 0-60 and I have hit 5.1 once. I have a 2015 VT with m/t. My modifications include SFR tune, catless down pipe, 3.5 intake, hot pipe resonator delete or "tork pipe", one step colder spark plugs, stiffer lower mount bushing, modified exhaust, turbosocks hks replica BOV, and modified grill area to allow more flow to the intercooler.

I'm not sure if the 2015 made some changes internally to make a difference, but I do recall Jay telling me he noticed the stock tune on the 15 was more aggressive than previous years. Before the tune I was recording about 6.3 0-60 and after the tune I jumped to 5.2. Here are some pics of my results.

I would like to take it to a track soon to get more official results.

At this point the only way I can verify its accuracy is that my times are consistent and when I use the same program on other stock vehicles, the 0-60 time matches the reported stock 0-60 for that vehicle.

It looks like 845 Kyle was hitting 13.9 in that post so it looks my results seem somewhat realistic. Numbers aside, it's a blast to drive. Ever since I had it tuned, it pulls very hard once I hit 3.5k all the way up to about 7200. This is my face when it's pulling.

If I told you I would just be guessing. I don't think the times seem that unrealistic?

What is everyone else's best times??
Dont let the people here convince you that its not possible. With that being said driving her on the street is alot different than the track and it might take you some time and practice to get her running those numbers.

When calibrated and mounted correctly it's known to be very accurate. I haven't personally compared it to a track slip, but from reviews I've read, it supposedly reads almost exactly the same times.

I had SFR tunes on my VT before going with tork, and I was completely blown away by one of the tune revisions he sent me. It honestly felt like unsafe power for the stock motor because it had been tweakerd from the previous one and felt WAY faster. I am not surprised at these numbers, I just hope your motor can handle the power :). I essentially had to return the tune because of issues, but it was always the fastest tune I had.

Agreed, i have an acquaintance with an SFR custom tuned VT. He took me for a ride and i was speechless. It seemed like unsafe power for the motor. It pulled way harder than my stage 1 Tork. I hear it's hit or miss with SFR though. Some people love them, others hate them.

I think unless your using a proper measurement device, VBOX, a 5th wheel, radar or a gps based system, the times arent that accurate. A $5 ebay dongle and an app hardly seem the most professional.

A Focus ST is a real quick fwd and they are mid to high 5 sec 0-60. A GTI is a tad slower and both should easily trounce even a modded VT. The VT doesnt do a very good job of putting the power down either.
