i'm new and i just bought an 03 focus svt. i don't know where to search for a good turbo or supercharger for it. i saw cavalier extreme had one but i'm just not sure. another question is if i do throw in a turbo would the stock exhaust be suffice to handle the added power? like i said i'm new and i need some help. thanks

do your homework before you purchase either. the supercharger will have a constant power band and will give pretty good gains(around 50hp). the turbo is going to give you better gains and will allow you to upgrade as you go. thats prob the way i would go. the stock exhaust could stay but you will get better power out of the turbo with a larger sized exhaust.

1turbofocus aka Tom recommends a 3" exhaust with his turbo kit.[;)]

True. 2.5 to 3.0 inch are the reccomended exhaust sizes for turbo. The choice in size will depend on your engine setup and how many PSI you will be running.

if tom recommends a 3" exhuast why doesnt he sell one for his kits?

I do for the guys that come here for install , A local muffler shop keeps all the parts in stock and installs it for my customers with muffler for 350.00

350 for turbo back or just normal catback?? how much would it be for a 3" downpipe???

There realy isnt any room for a 3 inch downpipe because of the AC compressor

i am currently trying to purchase one of your kits from honda hunter (FJ) and i dont have the ac compressor on my car... the next upgrade for the car is going to be redoing the exhuast so let me know how much... i think i would rather trust your exhuast shop with the welding than one of the local boys out here :)
im looking at getting trubendz from there back but to have a quality down pipe would really complete the exhuast
