hey, i am wondering if i wanted to install a turbo on my 1.6 focus would i need to upgrade alot in the engine or not that much? if so could someone please explain to me what would need to be replaced...
I think i have found a turbo that should fit my car, its a Garrett GT2560R Turbocharger.
As I don't know alot about turbos i would appreciate any help.

it seems like you can turbo these focuses pretty good without having to build a new engine like you might think. there are a lot of guys on here and on www.focaljet.com that have turbo kits with stock engines. i was looking up turbo info just the other day and that turbo you are asking about is a good size match according to garrett for your engine. do you have focus pros where you live? i'm guessing you are not in the usa since you have a 1.6 engine??

oh ok thanks for that,yeh i live in Cheltenham, England, and there arent any focuspros near me..
would you think that it would even make sense to install a turbo on a 1.6?

^^^ no. Buy a new rs hahaha. Do what you want but it would prolly be good for you to read the stickied threads in the top of the FI forum.

if i had a 1.6 i would turbo it, but that is just me talking, never done it.
