Ohhhh The Irony......

I thought this was funny.......

SUPERCHARGE your focus with a TURBOnator.......

Considering this is one of the biggest 'scam' products out there, and with it being a google ad on our site, I thought this was ironic in at least 3 different ways, funny to.....

35 HP increase......ummmmm NO! I think that went up at least 10HP since I last seen the advertisement, must be some summer promotion??

hmmm, I never even look at those ads. I like the whole turbonator/supercharger thing, lol. I want one of thiose fans you put in the intake manifold with the blades that look like knives. That's funny.

SUPERCHARGE ANY FOCUS, wonder if the SPI's and the SVT's get the same gains? It's probably the SVT that gets the 35, so using the foci math I learned back in the day I think that means 28.5HP for a SPI, 32HP for a Zetec, not to shabby......

It's all in the numbers.......

yeah, since I got the intake, I might as well mod the intake manifold. Actually, I want the air razor. It's somewhere in your signature. You think I could go air razor and turbonator on the same application. Imagine the horsepower gains I would get. I would be smoking SRT 4's and STI's

And hey, you gotta have a big-ass APC aluminum wing, and some altezza taillights.

Good Lord, with all this stuff on my car, I'll be pushing 600hp at the wheels.
