Would you do it?

I am pretty sure that this might have been brought up in another post.
But here goes. We all know about the RS8 Focus and that it is really
expensive. But set that aside and concentrate on the real question.

If you had the V8 conversion done on your focus, would you

put a full blower on (with the intake protruding out of the hood)

or

try and make a twin turbo setup work

Twin turbo...I'd try to make it as much as a "sleeper" if that's at all possible.

Blower, definitely. I don't want TOO much horsepower in the biatch.

im going to say blower, and then i would put a cowl hood similar to what hypnotic has on his to cover it up. i just love the way a supercharger sounds.

btw its kinda hard to make a v8 swapped focus a sleeper when people will hear the rumble and see the diff in the back... but i'd still try to play it off as a regular focus with exhaust.

Me, I'd save the money, and buy a 1987 Porsche Turbo Cabriolet, with the whaletail, and painted Fuchs alloys. And while I'm at it, I'd sell the Focus, lol

^^^^^^^OMFG, YOU'RE NEIGHBOR HAS AN RS AMERICA. SOMEBODY HOLD ME. THAT'S MY DREAM CAR, BUT ITS TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE. Ok, I'm done now. but daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn, I though our car was cool, she ain't nothing compared to an RS. Tell your neighbor that I'm gonna steal the car, so he needs to leave the keys in the ignition, you know, to make it easier for me to drive it away.
