just want to say my first hello

hello, this is my first post on this forum and been on a few other's for a few years and now that i have a ford focus this forum look's and seem's to be the best one on the the web. i been messing with inline 6cly turbo's and supercharger's for a few years now and never did like the lil rice burner's 4cyl but when we got a 2000 focus SE with the ztec 2.0 and seen how fast they run even without a turbo and then seen how they run with one i got hook quick, now that i'm all most done with my ford 300-6cyl supercharged f-100 (www.photobucket.com/thelastf100) i can kinda start finding out a few thing's on the ztec like best place for oil return line on pan or which manifold to use ss,cast, top mount turbo or bottom, will i still be able to use my ac and ps maybe i will need a lil help, being a newbe to this kind of motor i like to read up on all the post for a while before i do anything. has any one try the ebay turbo kits $399,499,up to $1500 i know that it"s not a top of the line turbo's but it can get you started or i may just buy by part by part,,well just wanted to say hello to every one that's in to what i like,,,,force induction,,thank's,,,keith

Yes sir!

And stay away from Ebay kits. Look at the buy and sell section here. there is always something good in there.
