Roush turbo installed!!!

Just got done installing my roush kit on my svt. Took some work to get it to fit since its not made for the svt. So far so good! Just took it to my exhaust guy to get the downpipe made. :)

Oh and started it up and drove it abit with NOOOO exhaust, sounds like a v8 killer. :)

Nice! Happy for ya. What tuning are you using?

It looks like you need a Zetec dipstick and tube so you don't have to hassle with what looks like a bent up stock one.

Thanks man!

Tuning: Tom's, J&S. Not too sure how much boost Im going for yet. I want it reliable.

As for the dipstick. I didnt have to bend it at all actually. Just twisted it and thats how it ended up. :) But yes I need a regular zetec one. lol

I'm not sure if it will measure the oil depth correctly, now, though. Not a huge deal if you know for a fact you don't have any oil leaks, but a Zetec dipstick will make your engine bay look a little cleaner instead of having a twisted one

Glad you're not taking it to get tuned at some local shop who is used to your run-of-the-mill b16 swapped Honda hatch...probably A LOT of those in Bakersfield.

As for power, I'd say shoot for 250. Super reliable and will destroy a lot of people. If the turbo is good for a little more (280ish), I say go for it.

Tom said hes tuned a roush turbo focus to over 400whp. Just have to find the right turbo I guess. :)
