I have the 2.0 Zetec.... and ive been looking at alot of options for forced induction..... the turbo seems like it would produce the best results, but also seems like alot of effort and money compared to the Supercharger.... Right now im running a simple intake, exhaust setup... wich sounds nice and all, but i want somthing that you can hear the blow-off valve explode when you rev it... basically... my main priority is sound and looks right now.... im getting a Superchip put in soon as well, wich i heard when paired to the MAC shorty intake sounds really loud.... but i dont need a 400+ HP street rocket here.... just somthing to get me around... quickly

you use what they give u from focus power. its not a factory turbo not much for options on intakes there.

jaekae turbo isnt really a feesable option for u if u just want looks and sound. paying 6 grand to hear a blow off is a bit overkill IMO. but if u get it, focus-power or precision tuning would be the ones to get. with good tuning, which focus power can offer, u can run a turbo safely on stock internals just at a moderately low psi, but u will have ur blow off :)

There's a shop in AZ(Mental Addiction Motorsports) that will be doing my kit.They are mainly a Mustang shop and have been doing turbo setup's for 4-5 years.My kit will consist of a Super60 T3,internal wastegate,intercooled,etc and it's going to retail around $3700.They are going to use my car as the donor car.
They have several Mustang turbo kits and are doing a Mazda Protege 5 right now.When I was speaking with the owner he was saying they are going to do a few different levels of kits.
My car goes in in 3 weeks.

We will see how it turns out, many shops have tried and failed in the focus turbo kit buisness.

and if they do some how succeed at staying in business, how many of them back up their product after it's been installed ?
90 days or 90 feet....which ever comes first...j/k

I know tom offers a Life time warranty with his turbo kits.
If you got the cash, tom's kit is the way to go.

Also, I don't think a superchip is going to make your intake louder.
I don't know who told you that but they were misinformed.

If you want a loud intake, just buy a 3inch cone filter and slap it on the end of your stock intake tube. Cost you about $20-40 bucks.
Some guy did just that and posted this in another thread on this forum.
