Killed a '18turbo focus in my NPI GT

This one is kinda funny. I was on my way home last Friday morning around 0630 from working the graveyard shift. I kept hearing a turbo bov behind me, I looked in my rear view but didn't see anything that would resemble a turbo car. Low and behold at the next red light a focus st turbo rolled up besides me, and I thought ah ha! It was you. He had the blackest tinted windows I've ever seen so i couldnt see in, and my windows are down. As we take off from the red light, he keeps giving it gas so I can hear that bov, as in I wanna race you. I kept ignoring him, and I guess he got pissed about me doing so. So at the next red light he finally roles his window down, and asked me if I wanna run, I couldn't resist, so I said yes, but he wants to run from a 50 roll, so I laughed and said how about a dead stop. He wanted no part of the dead stop, or even a 20 roll. I can't stand people coming up acting cocky about their car and not have no confidence in it when it comes time to roll. Anyways, I agreed with the 50 roll since I knew he wouldn't go any other way. I did ask him if I do out run him, will he take the car back to the dealership, he didn't awnser just laughed at me.
We was on a good stretch of highway, so we kicked it at 50, he stayed with me for literally 2 or 3 seconds and I immediately started pulling on him pretty good. I let off at 100mph, looked in the rear view, and dude was probably 10-12 cars behind me. I actually thought it would give me a better run than that since its HP rating was 260 HP. My GT is a 97 5 speed NPI 4.6 all the way through not ect a PI intake swap, .020 over 11cc pistons, around 9.7 to 1 cr, .030 shaved heads, 3-angle valve job, BBK x-pipe, flowmaster 44's cat-back, ported factory crown vic plenum/factory throttle body that's plished and half shafted. Engine now has 46k miles. Very, very minor mods. For some reason my car really rips for a npi car. Now it's no LS killer or anything like that, but it runs damn good for what it is. I've took down a total of 3 PI 4.6L cars, 2-5speeds, 1-auto. Out ran 1 Hemi Charger by about a car length up to 100mph. From a 10 roll I out ran a Nissan 350z around a car and a half up to 70mph, we had to let off cause traffic, I know he would have probably inched closer towards 100mph, but we didn't race again. I really don't race, I just enjoy my car, and stay to myself. It's only when someone comes up besides me taunting me, so then I race. I always say if you go out looking for a race, you're going to bump into something that will bust your bubble. Case in point, the focus st turbo driver. I really did like that little car, but damn, he actually thought he was going to bust my ass. I ignored him until I couldn't no more, so it had to be done. I just seen the "KILL" section, and thought I would write about the Focus st turbo guy. Happy Kills Everyone. BE SAFE THOUGH! PLEASE BE SAFE! I MEAN THAT! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!
