So far it's affordable and most powerful turbo with 91 octane on the market.

He probably meant most powerful without having to take out a loan just to turbocharge an economy car

I've driven one and it was pretty nice, the power wasn't crazy , but it was sweet and it seems so far to be reliable,

Also, the break the bank comment... I think Tom makes a stage one kit for a pretty reasonable price...last time I checked

when did anybody say and or show that getting good power from a focus was cheap? Let alone a "Good/Cheap Focus Turbo Kit"?

I personally like the roush kit, good power, looks nice under the hood, and it's made from a quality company. They are also working on CARB certification for it which would be sweet. the kit is also supposedly capable of 400 whp with a built engine and so on, looks like a promising kit to me.

It shouldnt cost over $5k to get an intercooled kit for a focus, especially when I only paid $6200 for mine. But hey, thats just my opinion, if you dont like it, dont look at what I post

I should have kept to 5.0s
