Got 12 months to figure out what FI to get.

Hello All,

In 12 months I'm going to get some sort of Forced induction on my car. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do and wanted some suggestions.

I've got a couple of factors that need to be taken into account. First I've got an Automatic transmition. Second I don't really know any tuners in my City that know the Zetec engine.

These two factors are pointing me towards the procharger supercharger kit. It is ATX safe and you send out your ecu to get it programmed.

My dealership is a rousch partner and suggested I go with their turbo. I would be willing to do this but I don't know if the kit will work with an automatic or if it is still available.

Please let me know your thoughts,

That sucks, so what FI options do I have. Just Nitrous and TC?

I dont plan on adding some sort of FI for another year or 2 so hopefully by then there will be one available but you never know, I have had some serious cravings up modify my car and make it faster. I might just have to get something sooner.

FocusSport's turbo is pretty sweet I think... check out www.focussport.com

I'm not sure what else there is for the Duratec. I think Cosworth makes a beastly N/A kit though... but might only be for 2.3 liter.
