I'm no expert in Turbo kits, but I have heard nothing but terrible terrible things about Gude kits here on this forum....do a search and you'll probably find some informative reading.

I'm not in the market, I posted this only because SVT kits are so far and few between and I thought others might appreciate the info ... as with any products, kids, do your research ...

They may or may not be the most reliable kits, etc., but that is one sexy looking kit. Super clean and all that crome would look sick in my engine bay! Can't get over losing my warranty at only 15,000 miles though.

i've seen that kit as well, I haven't heard much good response on GUDE...or response for that matter, but it doesn't exactly specify wether it's for ZTEC or DURATEC, if it's for DURATEC, i'd buy it toos out the turbo and intercooler, and go with something like HKS, or GReedy...something like that.

That is a ZX3 kit ONLY gude does not make one for the SVT (thank goodness)

Crome holds heat and heats up faster you want as little of it under the hood going to the induction system as you can

I disagree. Turbo kits are about power and that kit looks cheap. I wouldn't want to show off a sorry turbo with no manifold, internal wastegate ect. The chrome adds some bling but most car guys will see through that when you pop the hood.

Here is a Focus-Power kit. Notice the optional Greddy Blow-off valve next to the Pro-M Maf, and the Turbonetics Evolution wastegate on top of a tubular turbo manifold. If the light was better you could see the T3 under the manifold.
