What kit??

Now that my exterior/interior are done its now time to move onto the engine. I am thinking about getting a kit but cant decide what to go with and what my options would be with upgrading/tuning/tweaking.

The origional plan was toms turbo but i feal that kit is to much for me. I am only after 200HP for my summer cruiser. If I were to go with a SC such as Vortech or JRSC what can I expect for numbers. Is it possible to hit 200 with a zetec engine? Do you think I should just stick with Toms kit? Im not sure if after i get a kit if I well want more or stay. I just want to have my options open.

Please let me know.

Im sure that if you get toms kit that will be enough to hold you over for a while. Toms kit will put down way better numbers than a JRSC

The Jackson Racing unit won't mess with your warranty, though. Also, it's going to give you a more progressive and smooth power delivery. Don't know how important that is to you, but there you go.

Thats was the biggest topic on my mind was warranty. I still got 4 years left of it and it owuld be nice. What exactly are the gains of the kit with a JRSC and what parts are upgradable..

If you go to the JR site you will find the info you want but it is 150whp vs. 103 whp stock. There is also a boost upgrade from focus-central that will give you 15 more whp so now your at 165whp for the ZX3. Thats about 15whp more then a stock SVTF. Plus whatever other mods you already have on your car that are compatible with the charger will add more power too.

The torque numbers are way low, and IMO that's what counts! Are there any other kits out there that will work with the warranty?

You might want to buy the book by Richard Holdner: Hi-Po Ford Focus Builder's Handbook....
they custom made a JRSC for the std Zetec, but utilized the SVT kits, larger M62 eaton blower, and otherwise, with only a 65mm TB, custom air intake, Headers, Borla, and flex pipe they squeezed 197 WHP @ 6750, and 170 ft lbs out of it. That is on a std 2.0 Zetec, not SVT.

How does the jrsc not void your warranty? I thought that any form of FI and engine mods would void your warranty. If this is true Id be very happy. I want FI too but since I just bought my car I didnt want to give up the warranty.

It DOES void the warranty 100%

You could always go with my STG1 turbo kit it makes 190/190 and cost much less
