Well, at least there will be another SC option for the focus.

I'm wondering if it's going to be reasonably priced and will it make some decent torque ?

Glad to see that they chose the M62 blower. Still don't see why the JRSC for the Focus isn't M62 instead of the M45 since it's been proven to work on the zetec engine.

Yea, I'm psyched; I'm really scared about the price though; Cosworth probably doesn't mean bottom of the market price; then again, I guess they have to be competative. If its between the JRSC and the intercooled Vortech, I'm in (once I get, you know, money)

it says 220hp, but I'm sure with other stuff (cams, smaller pulley, etc) you could get it up to ~270 with the right stuff...

With a head package and cams, the M62 blower on a zetec made in excess of 230 whp in the MM&FF project car.

The benefit of this setup is more power obviously but also the ability to run more boost efficiently because of the intercooler.

I would like to see a pic of the engine bay with this installed.
