Welcome to FF. You aren't going to find a complete kit for under 3000. Some places to look at are topspeedperformance.net, focus central, there is a guy named turbotom he makes kits as well

^focus central has been out of business for years. if you check the buy-sell-trade forum religiously u should find one for around 2500 or maybe less

There are many fast Foci out there , It cost a lot to go Turbo on a Focus , If you get it turbocharged for 4000.00 you will be doing good

The Focus isnt like the Honda market or even close

Always keep your eyes open for a good deal on a turbo/supercharger kit in the forums. I picked a supercharger kit up on here about 4 months ago for just over 1500 dollars. Given turbos make more power and tq then superchargers it was too good of a deal to pass up. So always be on the lookout for a good deal. These are great cars, I love my svt. Good luck

look in the foreces induction section. there are many foci in the 400+ range, but its not cheap getting there.

coilovers, good tires and atuo-x that biotch! thats what these cars were built for.
