I wouldnt recommend it.. You would probably want to get a Limited Slip Diff, and a J&S Safeguard.

Im not sure what else the standard zetec requires, but those are kinda basic necessitys.

At 81,000 miles, you are also pressing youre engine pretty hard.

check the engine compression. i asked tom about high mileage engines and boost not long ago and he pretty much told me you arent looking for high compression numbers, just the same compression numbers across the board. if all 4 cylinders are showing very close to the same compression then you are good to go for boost. you dont really need a limited slip unless you plan on spinning tires alot but it is very very nice to have. lots of people have had success with supercharging automatics with no problems. but be warned because there have also been several people that have totally popped them. take care of the car and keep a close eye on the trans fluid, check it regularly. if anything at all feels weird after you install the JRSC stop whatever you are doing immediately before you cause more damage. 99.5% of the time catastrophic failures happen because of small problems that get ignored or go unnoticed. ive learned this myself the hard way. experience through trial and error over and over and over again. on day i might learn something lol

Shouldn't be a problem. JRSC is made to run on a stock engine. As for the J&S, I don't think its a necessity on a non-svt, but you may want to double check with Tom. A tune would be a necessity especially with an automatic.

I installed my jrsc at about that mileage, and now have the bbk. I now have 103k on it now and it runs strong as ever. I say go for it, but make sure when you buy the kit it has all the brackets and everything hardware wise you will need.

You'd be fine with the JRSC. Limited slip and J&S are unnecessary. IMO everyone who drives a focus quickly needs to change out the differential (Torsen ATB diffs FTW), but it is not necessary at all.
