low and behold

so its about friggin time i got promoted and work and hopefully will have a hold of that FS turbo pretty soon.

this brings up questions i want to figure out now before im buying out of a crapshoot.

i'm not familar with 4 cylinders or turbos at all so bare with me please.

mine is the 2.3 dura/ manual tranny/ on an 05 ST

can i safely run the stage 2 without changing my internals?

do i HAVE to have an aftermarket exhaust right away or can i get away with the stock one for a bit?

how will the injectors and such supply fuel with a turbo now?

is ther anything else i need to know before diving in?

Well good to hear you decided to go with the FS turbo.

1. No internals need to be upgraded while running 11psi and lower. If you decide to run higher then that then you need to look at a few things internals, Intake manifold and a few other things

2. Stock exhuast is fine for now. You will be limited on how much boost you can run since its restricted.

3. Injectors are supplied are 42lb

Lastly Im running Stage 2 and have over 35,000 miles on the kit and total on the car is almost 53,000miles.

I turbo'ed the car when it had around 18k on the clock.. Some think im a weee bit crazy and Id proby agree.

Running 11psi on stock internals and see sig for WHP numbers. Once you get it you'll never look back!

06-ST: Not your typical focus
-14.2 @ 101.50 on stage1
