Let me get this straight - You're willing to let a "shop" place a F/I system on your Focus, and they can't even pick out or recommend which system to go with?

My feedback would be to avoid letting them do the F/I job.

if you are looking for reliability.. I would say focus-power.com, but I have been seeing some very good things about the precision kit as well.. Just make sure that you do this right, do your research before you do anything, and make sure that you know what you are putting on your car.. FI is very fun, but not too fun done the wrong way.. The are some good superchargers out there as well- vortech, jr, maybe procharger.. Just do some research.. good luck

Yes. Doesn't it require some extensive (and professional) tuning?

yeah i have looked at toms kit before to.. its kind of a toss up...
we also know a guy that works a dyno shop so i will more than likely go to him.

you dont get as much out of the supercharger. but for the money i guess you do but i want to do the turbo set up.

also if i was to have focus power do the install where are they located?
