300WHP SVT Focus Turbo Build

You can follow my build on instagram
@SVT_Focused



So I recently decided to get a little more powerful car because I missed my SVT Cobra so much. I thought about getting another cobra to build on the side or maybe even going over to the "darkside" (as some may call it ha!) and getting a subaru WRX or STi.. I thought long and hard then came to the conclusion that I can get more power, keep my reliable SVT Focus, and have gobs of fun just by boosting my focus. I did a lot of research on the forums and decided that a turbo build is the definitely the way to go for me. I shopped around; looking at kits, parts, accessories.. Nothing really caught my eye. I came across Tom's DIY Turbo Kit while in the process of looking (go figure ha!). I contacted Tom and began asking a million questions. Mean while, FF's very own JaFocus01 was also helping me out by answering most of my noob questions and helping put me on the straight and narrow path that leads to boost! After almost a week of talking with Tom and JaFocus01 about my goals and whatnot, I decided that this was it.. time for BOOST! I bought Tom's DIY Turbo kit and continued shopping around to piece together everything else that I needed to turbocharge my car.

My goal, as you can see in the title, is 300whp. I hoping to be able to do it on pump gas as well. No race fuel for me. Ha! The car is currently my daily. So I tried to make sure I had all my basis covered, so that I could order all I needed at once time and start and finish the build ASAP.

Lets get this started.. Also, I hope this thread can be very useful for other people down the road who think about boosting their SVT focus.

Here is a list of everything I have

The turbo and intercooler have arrived late last week. Comp too MUCH MUCH longer to build the turbo than expected. Sadly I won't be able to start until December. I was wanting to be finished by now, but things don't always go according to plan. So Lord willing I can start the second week of December, after the Fall 2016 semester is over.

I will do my best to keeping the original post updated as I go through the process of turbocharging my focus. This is my first big project like this and first turbocharged vehicle to own. I am hoping to document everything and included detailed information. My goal is that people here can refer others to this thread for instructions on how to go about this process. All that said, I thank all those who have helped me thus far. The project shall begin soon. Next week is finals week. After that I shall begin the install ASAP.

Thought this would need a move to the Showroom until I read the detail here.

Good start on a build/discussion thread for the Turbo project with useful detail for anyone considering it.

(Still not sure about location, Forced Induction might get more general Turbo info.)

Thank you. I wasn't sure where to put it either. Since it is my SVT I figured SVT performance would be a good location to begin. I figured a moderator would move it if need be. Thanks.

Awesome! Thanks, man.

BTW, I am getting Tom's oil pan option and will just ship him my old one after I finish the build.
