2008 turbo kits available?

Since this car is quite new, I'm aware there aren't many options. So far I've come across a turbo kit by Focus Sport & one by F2 (although I'm not sure if they're finished with they're kit yet). Now I have a few questions here. Are there any other companies out there who produce kits for the 2008 2.0? Would a custom turbo kit be better? I have an automatic so I'm looking for a setup that would put me between 200-250 hp. This would be my daily driver as well. I've also been told there shouldn't be a dramatic change in MPG if it's tuned properly. Is this true? I'd like to have some opinions here on which route to go in order to have a ballsy automatic. Thanks!

focussport is the only company i know of that has installed a turbo kit on any 08 focus and actually has that kit in production.

but even their kit has to be modified to fit the 08...

and a custom kit will cost a bit more...

if i were you i would call them on monday and talk with them to see what they can help you with.

X2 FocusSport is probably your best bet. As Honhon said you could do custom kit but it's gonna run you probably at least $500 more.

There using a bigger turbo which means more lag. Get the focus sport kit. Much better preformance.
