svt gude turbo

I remember reading on this site how some people bought the Gude kit and there engine blowing up and stuff like that. From what I remember is that the waste gate and the blow off valve that they give in the kit are pos. If you were to buy the kit and right away change out the two pos with a boost control would the kit be ok?

unfortunately I cannot answer about the substituting of crap parts.. but for the money and risk involved why not save the extra cash and get a decent turbo. I dont know much about them,. but word of mouth, GUDE is crap.

HaHa i just thawt that maybe the piping and turbo were good. Because man the piping looks sweet. I just thawt maybe switching to the greddy blow off and maybe a turbonetics would make the kit reliable ya know.

yes thats a good idea..kriston geesh, a friend of mine has a stage 2 gude and she has a blitz blowoff valve and a 1500 dollor turbo boost controller...im going with gude just cuz i dont want a huge turbo, just a fast spooling one with lots of torque and immediate boost.

I drove hers once(in a bribe) and i like it...given the fact that ive never ridden in a focus with ne other kinda turbo..hers looks really good. Im trying to talk her into selling it to me. and for 2200..i think thats the way to go.

oh and i might mention that the turbo did blow her first engine..but that was before she got the new blow off valve and boost controller(the guys didnt tune it right either).

For 2995.00 and 1050.00 you can get my STG1 SVT turbo kit that is made for the SVT and it has a stainless manifold and a lifetime warranty on all piping and manifold , I use a turbonetics external waste gate and new turbonetics turbo

gude has nothing for the SVT that will work , and what they do have for the Focus isnt hitting on much still

Tom if I got a turbo I would love to buy your stage 2. Your turbo just costs a grip though itís the best by far. The tuning and everything but man that price is killer. I was even thinking of just buying your piping and intercooler kit and just putting together my own turbo kit with that potato turbo from hks (think its hks from what I remember). But then to do that I think everything greddy type s blow off turbonetics waist gate different injectors and everything else it would just be as expensive as buying your kit. I just wanted more horse power but still a little cheaper then 5 grand.

Whats really caused the motor to blow? Bad tune and just ran wrong, or boost walk, or creep whatever they call it?
