Yes, a major reason is my Focus doesnt have any power. I would love to turbo it but it has 125,000 miles on it and a auto tranny that has already failed once and was rebuilt at 85,000 miles. If I could safely turbo my focus I would do that, but I dont want to dump 5000 bucks in a car and have it blow up
If I save that 5000 and put the 4000 I could get for my car that would be a hell of a down payment.
