Not to be mean but if your asking that question you may need to do a lot more research on turbo's and the install of them on the Focus.

You control the amount of boost through a valve (Wastegate) which relieves the extra boost the turbo makes over what you want (can be mechanical or have a digital boost controller). Ideally you want a turbo for what psi you will be using (don't get a turbo that can do 40psi on the Zetec if your goal is 10).
