Smile Roush Turbo

So as you guys can see, im very undecided on forced induction. I heard that the Roush Turbo is no longer available. Is that true? If so, Is there any way else to get one? A good one? Also, what needs to be changed to make it fit an SVT other than the inlet pipe?
Thanks for any help guys!
-Nathan

Whats a charge pipe? The down pipe is from the turbo to the rest of the exhaust right? Where does that connect to exactly? Flex pipe?

The charge piping (piping that carries boosted air) will always be different from any zetec to svt kit because of the TB position.

Yeah, thats what i thought. How about the down pipe? Shouldn't it connect to the same spot the normal Zetec would? By the time you get to the flex pipe, aren't both exhaust systems the same other than size? I know that due to the stock SVT header, our cat is located in a different spot, but other than that... the same right? Thanks for the help guys.

the downpipe would only be different than the normal zetec because the svt comes with a header and the cat under the motor, the zetec has the cat on the front of the motor and a funny looking exhaust manifold that hooks to it. the roush kit is made to bolt up to the cat on the zetec. all you have to do is go to a exhaust shop and they can make you one. i had a 3" made for mine. and as far as the charge pipe goes and the tb location you could always buy a 2k intake manifold and save a lot of trouble rerouting all the piping.

there is a guy on the for sale forum on here that has one for sale. his shed got broken into so you may need to contact him and see if he still has it. he has a good price on it too.

Eh, with getting a 2000 intake manifold, wouldnt I lose power? I mean this Dual Stage intake manifold is what gives the SVT alot of it's power right? Plus I'd have to do cam work considering the... V...C...T?
