Turbo help/tips!

Hi!

I will soon buy an Focus, and I want more HP. So I thought it would be nice with a turbo under the hood. And I do not know which, how, where (and so on) about turbos. (Okei, I know a little bit, but not enough).

My question is, which turbo are great, like: Garret HKS Gude (not spesificly the best turbo)
, and must I upgrade other things so the turbo works?


Thank you
(Sorry my bad english)

Install a larger exhaust

Get a chip for tuning

Get a turbo kit

Install it get it tuned

Drive it till motor blows

Been down this route. Not too exciting.

Anyone else feel their zetec kicking in?

You need bigger injectors, BOV, an intercooler for safety, and of course a tune. The zetec stock handles 7-10 psi fine, as long as the tune is good.

Tom, has a kit for sale in Marketplace. Check over there, and if you have any questions just keep asking or use the search feature.
