No offense bro but if you had to buy a used focus then 99% likeliness you wont be able to afford any FI kit, turbo or supercharged...

you have a very nice dad. Not that I am griping, but for some perspective I have saved my parents nearly $10,000 on their cars the last three years (I work at Ford and get them a discount) and "all" I got from them was a catback system. Like I said, I am not griping, but your father must be nice with the money.

the fact that he posted without taking 5min to search & read what people have posted hundreds of times, negates any rule against posting such "useless" info

Did you point him in the right direction or even suggest that he search? You coming into his thread and suggesting that in your opinion you think that he wont be able to afford it helps no one. So what he shouldn't even research it. Your post answered no questions and helped no one out therefore your post was useless.
