sell the focus?

So I drove my friends neon srt-4 and I totall love the car. I own a 03 focus svt with 35k miles. The car handles great but just needs more power. Now i'm wondering if I should attempt to sell the svt or try to turbo or supercharge it, do you think it's worth dumping 4k for a turbo or just buying the srt?

spend the 4stacks and get the turbo and some more mods then you could be faster than your friends srt4 and have a better looking car. not saying your friends cars ugly but hatches are better! lol

depends what you want, turbo kits for the svt r expensive!, but you can put on together for half the price,or even find a supercharger like i did for cheap, but you wont be looking at any crazy number, also ur going to have to do clutch and flywheel, and tuning and prob LSD
it adds up$$$$$$$$$$$$$
you can choose a stock beast
or go with a custom built svt beast

you can do it for cheaper, just find used parts. but definitely turbo the beast. the focus handles better and after boost, you will be putting out more power than the srt. don't get me wrong, the srt is a great car, but the focus has so much more potential!!
