What kind of head with Turbo

I just put $15,000 in to my Focus and before i race it i just want to knjow some things.
First, how much boost can i can have before my stock block cracks?
Second, What is a good head that i can buy with my turbocharged car?
and Third. I got my job done in some help baked shop and i think they never tuned my Diablo chip, so Tom, I live in Philly and i really want to bring my car to you, what should i do. I was tols that you are the man when it comes to focusz and turbos.

What's wrong with the head that's already on your car?

Well there's nothing wrong with my stock head i was just told that if i have aftermarket pistons, rods, cam shafts, then i should get an after market head for better air flow. And Tom, i know somethings about cars but what do u mean by FR, (stock?)

McNews has the Ford Racing head for 795.00? , This is a full C&C Ported ready to go head with larger stainless valves

For 400.00 more i will go in and redo the combustion chamber and finish cleaning up the head and reassy the head

There are some new cams coming out for FI in a few weeks you might want to look into as well if it is in the budget

A tune is the most important thing tho

Tom

I would run stock before the STG3 crowers there far to big for FI

If you have a chip , I charge 350.00 to dyno and custom tune
