for maf best place would be tom. He now sells Diablo MAFai and custom housing. Easiest route to go.

You could just get a MAF from a Mustang GT

The cavalier extreme guy has a ton of information to soak in before I'd consider him a good source for a turbo kit. Why on earth would anyone go with a guy who knows little about a focus building a kit for the very 1st time over someone like:

Precision
Roush
Turbo Tom
????

All three of those are solid kits with experience in the industry and with a decent rep.

As for building your own kit. Why??? Unless your like me and just willing to pay more to have things done exactly your way and to have a kit that nobody else has.. I just dont see the point.

Yeah I'm with Bela. I built my own, 100% myself except for the tuning and it was alot of work and frusteration. Good luck,

Scott

Mix matching parts to build your own can be a real pain.Most companies have good warranties on their turbo kits.It might cost you alittle more for a manufactored kit but in the long run it is worth it.
