    6FEBE80A-DE72-43B9-8D4F-9438D8D696EC.jpeg I have been to the track several times with my 2.0 RWD. My best run so far was a 14.2. I’ve been waiting to see what other 2.0 have been doing. Have you run your car yet?

    No, i havent decided on what tune to get or what exhaust upgrades to do. I found a shop that will do a complete custom from manifold back. I might do that but i really want a tune also. I thought bryan2.0 had a berger tune not the racechip... I do need to see what stock times are or atleast dyno results. Im slacking sorry

    Bryan,

    Thanks for sharing your results. Would you mind listing what you've done so far? Was this a JB4 on a certain map, plugs/gap, etc.? I tried searching and couldn't find a list. Thanks again.

    I’ve ran on both map3 & 4 and have tried adding a few gallons of 100 octane gas as well. I honestly don’t remember what map I was running when I got that time.

    NGM intake
    Custom axle back exhaust with magnaflo mufflers
    HKS plugs gapped to .022
    Eibach Springs

    I hope to have the mid pipe done soon. I will get to the down pipe later down the road.

    First update with Racechip RS on Stinger 2.0. Let me start by saying that I traded in my 2015 Optima (of 4 years) SX Turbo with 274 hp for the base Stinger. I've outrun a base Stinger about a year ago in the Optima and always wanted to know how the Optima would fare against a Focus ST.

    I didn't have to wait for more than a day after installing the Racechip RS in my Stinger. While at a stop light with 3 lanes, a Focus ST made a U-turn from opposite side now headed in my direction. I'm pretty sure he saw me at the light with my bright parking lights on. He accelerated with his exhaust blaring.. .. now in my direction. Low and behold, he was at the next stop light in the middle lane. Of course, there wasn't a vehicle in the lane I was in. I thought about rolling to the light thinking it would change before I got there, but it didn't. I had no choice but to pull up next to the Focus ST which had aftermarket parts stickers, etc. I said to myself, here goes nothing which a tiny thought of GT remorse. The light changed and I went half on the throttle until I saw the red color of the STs hood through my front windshield.....and then I nailed it. That was the last time I saw the red paint until I looked back through the rear passenger's window. I could see he was trying to race and could hear his engine racing. I had also realized that as my Stinger changed gears, my rear tires chirped and the Stinger was off and gone. The time that I looked back, the ST was a full car length behind and then he gave up before reaching the next light. I can honestly tell you that before the Racechip install, regapped plugs and K&N drop in filter.....that ST would have ate me for lunch. GT remorse was put to rest after that. The Stinger was in Sport mode and the Racechip was set on mapping 5. I will try to get quarter mile times at a track later this Spring and possibly a Dyno Test. For now and at 1500 miles on the odometer, I will let everything gel for bit more and enjoy my new performance boost.

    By the way, when the rear tires chirped, traction control was on.....and no Launch Control.

    You're welcome. I just find it hard to believe that I could add 40 to 50 crank hp without upgrading exhaust, ecu mod, etc....for a simple install of piggyback chip for $400. I'm almost certain that I am very near or over 300 hp at the crank when on mapping #5 and 93 octane gas with plugs gapped around 024. Looking forward to Dyno Test. I want to get to at least 2k odometer miles first.
