I would still have to retune and adjust timings. Feel free to speculate. This wont happen soon by any means, but I may give it a go some day!
Right. I assumed it would take a lot less work to turbo a 2013 Focus than say my old 07 Taurus. If you decide to give it a go please post a thread for your build.
