turbo tom this forum your posting in has really good quality stuff from what i hear its the best. he specializes in the FOCUS.

im ordered his stg1 and if you wanna wait till the middle of july ill have it all done on my car.


downside is to focuspower.com turbo kit is its hella expensive BUT you get what you pay for.

i think if your gunna spend a lot of money on something you should really research the shit outta it, and do it right the first time. that way you dont have to go over and fix something and end up paying a lot more.

a cheap alternative to the forced induction world would be a jackson racing supercharger but the power gains are minimal in stock blower form, now you can upgrade it but then you run into issues like you need to upgrade and get a methanol injection. eventually you spend just about the same as a stg1 kit.

A stg1 Kit can be upgraded easily, also when you get the JRSC you usually dont make a lot of torque. toms stg1 kit is a pretty good deal, you can find better pricing on other turbo kits but quality could be an issue and like is said it just makes more sense to me to get it hooked up right the first time and not mess with it anymore.


i say turbo tom

other companies you may want to look at are

Vortech
Power Works
Precision Turbo
Roush Turbo
those are the main ones think about what you want

prices are from around 2,500-5,200 dollars.

my kit all together including tuning is around 4k dollars.

THEN you need to look at guages which YOU SHOULD GET

THEN you need to consider install AND YOU MUST GET A TUNE!

it will cost around 5000 dollars i would say on average to get everything done maybe ive 6k i dunno depending on how crazy you wanna get.

this turbo buiznass is deep.

check out your options and good luck

focituner , Have you ever drove a turbo car makig the same HP and about 40 TQ more ?

There is NO more maintenence or any less reliability with a turbo

"equal torgue and HP curve" equal to what i hope you dont mean to a turbo
