I know both FSW and F2 make kits for the 08+ foci. I believe Tom can even tune the 08+ models. You can always also do a custom build if thats your thing.

it is worth it....for any underpowered 4-banger.


He bought his car like that, already turbo'ed and everything (not trying to start an arguement...so dont go there...), and from what he has described it was worth every penny.



so....DOOOOOO IIIITTTTTTTT!

If you are intrested in the F2 kit I'll have dyno sheets on the 22nd. And you'll save some money for a upgraded clutch which you will need for anything over 8 psi.

Honestly anything you can do to your engine has the chance of blow it. Risk is part of the game.

Both kits are good and there are groups of people out there that like both of them. If you're gonna look into them just do the research yourself....don't start a thread here asking which one is better. (it won't end well.)
