would this work?

Before i got my focus, i had a 96 turbo eclipse and i rolled it 5 times down the middle of the road and went in the ditch on my top a little ways, hit a tree that bent my right rear wheel strait out which flipped me back on top of my wheels and finally stopped after going 250 feet down the ditch. I was doing over 110 on country roads which was very stupid i know. i learned my lesson, trust me. so i bought a car that wouldnt go that fast . just kidding im very blessed. all i had was a black eye where i got knocked out. but anyway this guy told me that he could take my eclipse turbo and make me a manifold to fit my focus. i know i'll have to buy a new clutch, bigger injectors, 3" exhaust and probably a few more things. so what do you all think about this? good or bad?

Wow.....that is really wierd. I know a kid who lives in the same town as me and had an eclipse GS-T and he was out driving on country roads and tried jumping something and completely f-ed up his car. Damn that crazy.

And youll want all the things you listed along with an lsd and youll probably want to upgrade the suspension very soon too. You can pick up the injectors along with a 70mm MAF and tuning from tom at www.focus-power.com for around $850 I'd suggest doing that. And hey if he can mock you up a manifold I say go for it, hope he'll be able to make you some piping too otherwise youve also got that to worry about.

i think id go with a turbo made for the focus. the kits have everything you need and you dont need to worry about blowing up the engine.

What turbo he uses wont have anything to do with blowing up the engine. As long as he gets proper tuning he'll be fine.

1. This is a zetec tuning section not the FI section.

2. Going cheap and hand made on a turbo kit is silly. If you are poor, save up.

he could make the kit, wuld be interesting to see how it comes out.. you would also need some sort of computer control. you could ask tom and see what hes got, i dont think he sells the mic kit unless you but a turbo kit from him. and theres also cfm has chips too. youd have to call them on that...

why go through all the trouble to get custom pipes and everything else he needs? save up and do it right.

Very good point, I am not against custom setups, I am against thinking it can be done for cheap.
