nothing yet for the SVT yet.

Like alot of us figure LOL. Focus released in 2000 and took them 5 years to make a supercharger. Another 5 till the SVT stuff comes out LOL Just kidding.

The PowerWorks is prolly the best bet right for SVT guys.

Now all they need to do is get the air filter away from the 200 + Deg incoming air and get the piping off the hottest part of the engine

If SC is a MUST i would say the jrsc BIG BOOST KIT is the least cost for the most bang

I think this kit would outperform the JRSC big boost on 93 octane. Plus your looking at intake temps of like 110 vs 150-180 or so with the JRSC. Plus take both out to the track and which would perform better??? I can't believe you'd suggest something that is prone SOOOO prone to heat soak over an intercooled option. Take a 93 octane JRSC big boost kit tuned to the max (like the one mcNews is doing) and take it to the track, run it for 20 minutes, come back and see how much power it's putting down. Betcha you lost at least 20-30 whp!

This is being tuned for 91 and they are seeing over 200 to the wheels safely. The intake is so the user doesn't have to rewire his MAF electronics. And the intake tubing isn't bad at all, it's not like it's over the header. Plus this is intercooled with an excellent heat exchanger. This is by all counts a better option than the JRSC big boost. Yes it's more expensive, but since when have you been on the side of "cost matters" with your 5K+ turbo kit ;)

I'm not a fan of SC's in gerneral on a focus, but the filter does need to be relocated to someplace cooler.

I do have a question.....

How good do those little inline coolers work?
