Tom, I have some Q,s about your turbo kit.

First, as I had mentioned before, I do plan on buying a motor from you. But as I am a highschool student, it will take quite a while to save that much money. So I think I will get the turbo to start. Anyways, my questions are.

1. would your turbo kit be alright for my SVT, it has 105,000k miles on it, runs perfectly fine too?

2. About how much power could I expect from it?

3. Would I need any other aftermarket parts to work with the kit? My car is stock other than a CAI.

4. Is this the same turbo kit on your 700hp focus??

5. Is this kit something that I would be able to do myself? I have some mechanical know-how but dont have shop tools and whatnot. Thanks for your help.


Weston

* With a good tune you should have no problem

2. About how much power could I expect from it?
*That depends on how far you want to push it , many are safely running 300HP on the stock engine a good number is the 260-280 range

3. Would I need any other aftermarket parts to work with the kit? My car is stock other than a CAI.
You do understand my DIY kit is NOT a full turbo kit you have to buy some of the pieces

4. Is this the same turbo kit on your 700hp focus??
*No but very very close , I see no reason with a change of turbo my DIY kit couldnt see an easy 450HP

5. Is this kit something that I would be able to do myself? I have some mechanical know-how but dont have shop tools and whatnot. Thanks for your help.
*That depends on your skills , many install there own kit

I actually did not know it was not a complete kit. is there a lot of other stuff I would need? I'm sorry for all the questions, I need to catch up on my FI knowledge, haha.

Thank you very much Tom, I will defenitly be be looking into this, hopefully by the end of summer I can get it. One more question, Is 60lbs injectors the LARGEST I would want? I have seen some RC 71lbs injectors for a pretty good price. Are they good injectors?
