Not boosted anymore.

So I sold the ProCharger and plan on doing a different route. I been looking at the VF/FocusSport s/c but the #;s seem kind of small for now. Im sure they will get better in time.

Im open to some suggestions. I will have my Xcal 2 pretty soon so tuning shouldbnt be an issue anymore once my wideband comes to.

What Im after. Kit that will provide me with some decent power (200whp range), if FMIC it would have to be custom to fit into the euro collection front space, qaulity and fitment of parts has to be a must and being able to supply me with a decent base tune since

I was looking at Tom stage 1 kit. Curious what power #'s are and how upgradable it is?

from what I understand tom's stage 1 kit is easily upgradeable, all you need is new plumbing, an intercooler, and tuning. as far as numbers...I think it's around 200/200 whp, but don't quote me on that, ask tom

There is no way i would look at the VF FS it will never support good numbers like the procharger will and wont hold a light to a turbo

The STG1 is 100% upgradeable to the full 300HP kit , get in on the full kit GB and save 500 off the full kit if everyone comes through that makes the full kit 4700.00

If you want a supercharger go with powerworks kit,but for that price now you can get tom full turbo kit.Either way I think these two kits are the best in the market right now for a zetec engine.

Unfortunately I wont be able to do the group buy :( I decided Im just going to catch up on some bills first this way giving me more freedom and room for any possible problems when I do choose my next setup.

Tom I do plan on picking up a Xcal 2 pretty quick here. Would that work for your tune if I do plan on getting your kit.

Also how much work is needed to get your STG1 kit upgraded?

To go from my STG1 kit to the full kit will take you about 1.5 to 2 Hrs , most the time will come from taking the bumper off and replacing it

If it wasent for the bumper you could upgrade in about 45 min to 1 Hr
