Pro's/Con's of These Kits?

I've been doing a lot of research on both turbo kits and my options as far as a DIY deal. Breaking it down to the kits I'm left with the FSWerks and F2 for my Duratec. I'm having a hard time finding any power numbers with the F2 but I have all the information I need on the FSWerks kit.

I guess my questions are:

What kind of power to the wheels?
How versatile is this kit?
How easy is it to install in comparison?
Any other pros/cons you guys can think of?

Thanks for you help in my ignorance :)

Yeah, I know all about the FSWerks kit. I'm more worried about expansion room later down the road, and if there are any advantages of each kit over the other. I know it's a good kit.

Okay as for the F2 kit. Great quality parts. Tom here is currently tuning my car with the F2 stage 2 turbo. Currently off the market F2 was looking at using the Comp turbo with the kit. However they may stay with Masterpower and add the Garret as an option. When the kit hits the market again you can always get the kit without a tune and have Tom tune it. He is doing an awsome job with my kit. We are planning on finishing the tune this weekend for 8 psi and maybe even 10-11 psi if I can find a piece of vacume hose that will fit the turbo.

If F2 stays with masterpower then go with the fs kit or ask if they will add a Comp
