BS turbo?

Hey guys i'm looking to put a turbo in my focus at some point in the near-ish future and while i was looking around on FSWerks' site in the classifieds i found this for a measly $1000

http://www.405media.com/esclassified...Turbo_Kit.html

Is this a pos or could I possibly switch out the turbo that it comes with for a bigger one and have it run fine? I'm only looking to push like 9-12 psi, nothing special

this is what he said, The manfolid is a JDM and the turbo kit is TURBO NICS. I was going to put it on a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 but I wrecked it before I got to use it. Now I have a SVT Focus and don't need the turbo kit for this car. So the turbo kit is brand new, never been used.


i don't think i would spend my money on it but hey it's your car.

JDM!!!! Bwahahahahaha. Yes, because the Focus is based in the Japanese domestic market so of course they make a manifold to fit it....
