I have seen several ebay manifolds in person before, and there is a very common problem of the having extremely crapy port matching. The cast ones are usually alot better than the stainless ones.

Now looking at that, it says turbo, oil lines, and filter included. But later on it kinda sounds like just the manifold. What did he say to u Tom? I cant see turbo or anything else included for that price.... Very curious, keep us informed please.

Just eyeballing that design it appears that it won't fit a focus. Turbo placement looks like its going to sit it up to high. I almost bought that manifold years back to try out but ended up making one.

The mazda 3 & 6 have a ton more room between the motor and firewall. It would be cool if it worked on a focus though. I hope so.

I did find a made in china kit that looks like it would fit a focus. Complete with intercooler too.

I'll have to post pics of it.

It looks to me like it would fit the Focus , turbo placement looks good , he would not tell me who makes them , I am working on trying to find that out next week

There is another place on there with this manifold for 249.00 for just the manifold

Here is a complete duratec focus turbo kit I stumbled upon. It's made in taiwan.

I saw pics of this mounted up on a Focus in China. I can't seem to find that pic, but here is a pic of the layout of the kit.

Anyone want to guess the price?

Actually the only foci you can get in china have duratec engines.

They also only run a map sensor so that is why there is no maf provision on this kit.

what's retarded about a 3 bolt flange?

It's a subaru / IHI flange. It's been used successfully for almost 20 yrs.
