To sell or to turbo, that is the question!

Should I sell my focus and get a evo X(dont like the suby), or turbo my focus?
Im thinking I could probably get my whole turbo setup for like 4/6 grand (gonna push like 12-17lbs). Or I can sell my focus make idk, 3k-5k use it as a down payment and get an evo X next year. Idk im so confused! I <3 my focus, bout a new evo X would be so cool! What yall think?

Well, a turbo focus is more "exclusive" to me...Its always cheaper to mod what you already have. IMO.

unless you have an early model focus and it breaks all the time.. *sigh*


anyways i think really it all comes down to what you want in a car. if you just want it to be fast then you'd probably save some money by keeping the focus and turboing that. but if you feel you "need" or want the awd then maybe consider the trade.

If you could sell the focus and buy a superfast all-wheel drive car that's going to be extremely reiliable AND have a factory warranty at the same tme, go with the EVO X :-D :-D

EVO X.

Its just a higher class car. The Focus is great, but in the end you just have a turbo Focus, and unless you drop tons of money into it, it won't be any faster than the other turbo Foci around. But a new EVO X, it would be something nice.

If you can afford the car payment ,I say go with the EVO ,but if it puts you in a situation were your working for the car and not getting ahead in life, turbo the Focus. The EVO is a better car ,but a Turbo Focus is a blast too.

Both the Evo and the Subrau are terrible looking cars to own and drive. I would commit suicide than to drive one of them.

There are most owner on this site that turbocharged there duratec, Turbocharging ur car is worth it than buying one cuz, I guess If U don't tell Ur insurance company that ur turbocharging ur car; U will be paying the same payment for insurance instead of buying one that's already turbocharged and half to pay double just to have one..
