Turbo and or S/C.
Okay, I need info on where to pick up turbos/super chargers, And it needs to be cost effective. Love the pro charger, but she's to much cash. the sc for svt only give 18% gains or say nominal hp gains of 25-30 hp, not worth 3000 bucks, at least to me. Anyone know any web sights to search. I did a yahoo search and found nothing worth while. also can our little svtf's handle the power increase. How much hp can the stock clutch take safly. I do understand that I'll need bigger fuel injectors, 42 psi injectors should be suff.

Two things that dont go well on the Focus is cost effective and Turbo/SC

There is no cheap way to do it and make GOOD HP and GOOD TQ , It cost money , Turbo will give you the most and the best of both worlds (turbo/sc)

There is for SC
Vortech
Procharger
PowerWorks (nothing for the SVT at this time but say its coming )

I quote Tom on there is no cheap way to make good hp and good tq, everything cost money to do it right and you might as well spend all that money at the start because doing it cheaply is only gonna cost you more money in the end.

you can always buy a non aftercooled vortech kit. theyre relatively inexpensive compared to a nice turbo setup or other vortechs. and its probably much more worth the money as opposed to the jackson racing. i dont know exactly what you could expect for gains but i would think they would be pretty good.

Or you could do both . You won't get massive power as the supercharger does restrict the system, but you get loads more bottom end torque and no lag. As for the cost probably too much but can you really put a price on individuality. The car belongs to Ruth Beaver who is a member of the ford focus owners club www.ffoc.co.uk Here is her web site
