Anyone have Tom's turbo kit?

Where did you get the parts that aren't included in the kit, and about how much did you spend?

I have 2 of my kits LOL

To answer part of your question there is many places , the easiest is ebay , you find what your looking for and if your not sure just shoot me a link I I will say yes or point you to what you should be looking for

zx3 from what I am seeing guys are spending roughly 4200.00 avg on the ZX3 with xcal and tuning

I have an SE is it the same Zetec as the ZX3. $4200 sounds about the average price for a kit. If i get this kit should I dyno and tune or should your tune be sufficent, and after upgrades should I dyno or again just tell you and get a tune?

My buddies car was the first full Toms diy kit i have installed. and everything went together very smoothly (very surprisingly) nothing ever goes as planned lol, But there were no fitment issues at all. all in all, you just bolt everything up and move to the next step till its done. ill have chris the owner chime in cause he has never installed a turbo kit and he was doing it right there with me plus he bought all the parts i told him so he can chime in on that also.

Heres a better break down for you.

-For the best prices on couplers go to CXRacing.com
-Oil lines i got from a local performance shop but any -3an 3ft line is perfect for the feed for return went to homedepot for fittings and oil resistant hole from autozone.
-Check ebay for great prices, make sure its not a knock off

Tom posted a parts list in your thread in the Focus-Power forum if you have any questions on a part you dont know post it in here and i will help you out. if you have any questions feel free to ask we will all help you out
