And where in the world would be able to fit a twin turbo system in the engine bay.

Single turbo systems are already crammed in the Focus Engine bay.

It is a nice idea though. Some people back in the day use to talk about supercharging and turbocharging a focus ... all talk, way too much money, never happened.

Its torque not hp. The Duratec trannies are not known for being able to handle much torque.
