Is this setup safe

Stock zetec engine (130,000 mi), T28 turbo with log mani, Tial external wastegate, 8x26 IC with 2.5 IC piping, custom intake mani with stock SVT TB, stock 03+ fuel pump, stock 4.6 V8 injectors (not sure of the flow rating), MSD coil with 9mm wires. I'm planning on running around 10psi DD, with 15psi at the track. I'm planning on getting the SCT for tuning. The shop by me uses that for all the mustangs they tune so i know they have the experience to tune mine. I'm just not sure if these injectors are big enough mainly.

First welcome to the forum. second no the injectors from the 4.6 are the same size has your stock injectors. Your mileage should be ok just do a compression check to make sure there still good for boost. Has for the amount of boost your saying your going to run. I do believe 11psi is the max the stock internals can take. Some have put out more but the reliablitly ends there. Here is a link to Toms section of the forum he will be able to tell you alot more since he seems to be the turbo guru around here. He has tuned and made a many of powerful foci DD and track.

Here is the link to the right forum

He very good at what he does and offers great tech supportt/ help with any questions

Thanks for the info on the injectors. I wasn't sure what they flow. I just knew there off a bigger engine and there a different color than mine so i figured they were a higher flow rate. With the small turbo and low 10 psi of boost will i be needing a BAP or should it work stock with a good tune.

they could be 24# er's but I'm pretty sure they are 19#er's. Your stock fuel system should be good you might need a BAP (boost-a-pump) but Tom would be alot better on telling you what you need

You won't need the BAP as you won't be putting out that much power at 10psi.

by the way no real need for the msd, stock coil and wire work fine. as for injectors you probably need 42#.
I dont really see you needing a BAP for 10 psi, 15- probably
and 15psi on stock zetec internals is kinda pushing it...

I also dont see you needing a custom intake and I wouldnt use the SVT TB

Also just because a shop tunes a lot of mustangs does not mean he will be good at tuning you Focus that has been shown here dozens of times before , look around and see if you can find a shop that has tuned some Foci

^^^ very true, custom intake mani's are expensive, and need to be done right.
and i dyno tuned my car when i put my cams in at a mustang place that had done a couple foci, i was not impressed.

There is only one Mustang tuner here locally that ACTUALLY knows how to tune a boosted Focus. All the rest have just been horror stories. Dig around. You'll find them or they'll just come in and post up.

BAP isn't needed as long as you plan to stay in low boost. 10 psi in a Zetec is plenty fast for a DD.
