**Checklist for Procharger?

Hey guys! My check just came in for the time I got rear ended, I'm looking at 8k and I plan on getting a procharger.

Can you guys tell me what I need to up my completely stock Focus (aside from a catback with 2.5in piping) up to speed so I can get the kit in place when it arrives?

I know I need gauges (looking at EGT, Boost, Fuel Pres, Oil Temp) Does this sound about right? Do I need more or can I cut some?

Do I Need a new MAF sensor?

Would I benefit much from headers and a high flow Cat? (would I regret skimping on these?)

What size injectors do I buy?

Is a BBK tb ok? (can get this cheaper than FC tb)

Would I want to get rid of my stock clutch or fly in advance?

Any misc info and tips would be most appreciated too!

I know I am a newb to forced induction, but hey we all gotta learn!
Please let me know if I am missing anything, hopefully I can get pics and dynos up within 2 weeks


Thanks for the input guys!

Supercharging the ZX3...go powerworks or procharger, and how to upgrade once install
That's a rundown of all the things you should do if you want to suck every last HP out of your SC system

No turbo, since I live in CA and the super cops down here would get me for having no cats for sure... I am registered in OR, and I dont think they allow running around with no cats either... (does OR have emissions?)

I did 42lb injectors, 1 step colder plugs AZFS22C (something like that), 2 1/4 magnaflow exhaust. 4-1 race header with flex, 65mm tb, svt maf, vf engineeing rear motor mount. I think thats a good starting point.

have yet to get the dam thing running. pro charger sent me a faulty tune and waiting for them to send me a new chip.

No state can you go with no cat that is why with a turbo you add a high flow cat in line

thats the same as i have except for i have a 4-2-1 header and pro-m maf and high flow cat but i also have a problem with the chip from procharger but they r paying for me to get a delta chip and tune so if it was me i would go s/c and spend a little extra and get a front mount intercooler
