I think the Roush and Persision are the only 2 kits left on the market atm (for the zetec; correct me if im wrong). either one is great from what ive seen. I think that persision kit is cheeper than the Roush kit, but then again its ROUSH!! If you have a little technical know-how, and a few friends you might be able to DIY a full custom turbo kit for yourself.

Yep get it on and go to the track but make sure you turn the boost down (detune it) Yep FS detunes there stuff why at the track , for even more safety they add race fuel after "detuning"

Yea thats right all the crap they gave me about race fuel and with the small amount of power there making having to kill the power by "detuning" 65HP by turning the boost down AND adding race fuel makes me wonder ? ? ? ? ?

It says because it was sooooo hot BS the ECU sees the temps and adjust timing, Wish you would try that crap with me !

Go with the roush kit save you self a lot of problems

can anyone tell me why the roush kit is the best? It seems to be one of the most expensive, but i guess you get what you pay for right?


I have been looking specifically at this one.... check it out
