yeah you're going to basically have to ditch anything stock on the zetec. pretty much starting from scratch with a cgi block and up until you even think about bolting 2 turbos onto it. i don't really know why you would want to twin turbo a fwd car imo. if you have the money to twin turbo a focus you might as well make it awd at the same time.

if u went with a twin turbo setup im pretty sure u'd have to have 2 of the same turbos... u cant pull more out of 2 cylinders then the other 2... and if goin with a single now which is the way to go on a 4cyl i'd say use that t3 depending on the specs
