Although it's a cheap ass kit, I *am* curious if the manifold puts the turbo in the right spot and if the downpipe lines up with the rest of the exhaust. If everything lined up, I would be impressed. All the Honda guys don't seem to have any shame with that stuff, hah. If I had a beater Focus (and money to throw around) I'd be tempted to see how well it worked.

I wonder, if anyone has bought one of these "kits". I would venture to say yes but i havnt seen a thread about someone trying to put one on, as far as the manifold putting the turbo in the right spot and the downpipe lining up/fitting correctly. Cause you have to wonder about how much work was put into this because it comes with stuff we cant use such as the fuel pressure regulator.

Just by looking at the pics you will still need:
MAF Pipe($100)
Injectors($250)
Tuning($300-1000)
Different Oil lines, since you have to modify the oil pan($50-250)
Custom Exhaust ($50-200)
Slim fans(I think about $125)

And don't forget all the guages
And if you get Tom to tune it: J&S

everyone on here is good enough to give good advice, and people are smart enough to ask, so i'm hoping no one will ever buy this except for an experiment!
