Focussport Turbos

Obviously everyone knows already but i was just on the site again and i must say, those are amazing deals. One your getting turbos from a reputable dealer where theyve been heavly tested. Two they give you amazing numbers, almost 200whp and wtq for the 2.0 and over that for the 2.3, and thats the non intercooled versions. Three the price, what an amazing deal 3k for a turbo, where else can you get a turbo for that kinda money that is already tuned and ready to bolt onto your car, a jrsc used to cost that much. Great deal, has anyone picked one up yet?

I am debating it right now. My only concern is trying pass emissions tests every two years. I personally think it's an awesome setup, it's just the emissions BS you have to deal with. This is killing me!

Wait for the Hi Boost turbo kit before making a decision it comes intercooled for not much more money and from a Co that knows what there doing with turbos and have been doing turbos for many years more than fs , Hi Boost is a Co. that has been doing Turbos kits for a long time with a VERY GOOD customer track record with the Mazda croud and others

focussport makes their stage 1 turbo setup stealthy. it'd have a better chance of passing a visual inspection if need be. if i move to cali i hope its just a sniff check and call it good. anyone know the whether or not they look in your engine compartment?

The Hi Boost kit is the way to go. I believe this is the kit Tom is talking about. Better price, better components, good company and they made good power. They have some options on turbos as well.

WEll just to give my .02

The Hi Boost folks may have more experience in turbos, but they don't have a proven track record with the Focus people yet. Focussport, on the other had, has proven that they will stand behind their products. So maybe a little piece of mind is worth more that a couple turbo options.

I believe Tom and ourselves have more experience with the Focus than FS. If we work together it will be a no brainer. Don't let marketing cloud your thinking.

On a tune for a turbo, don't you tend to run richer? It's the sniff test I'm worried about. Where I live they don't look under the hood. They just look under the car for a cat, then do a OBD and tailpipe test.

as long as they don't look for both cats, you should be fine.
