rerun other than Dylde,

Thank you all for replying. I wanted to hear someone's exp with a TopSpeed kit and CFM DIY kit. Also did Focus Werks drop the SVT kit they were working on?

There are 12 years worth of information in this forum to answer all these questions. A simple BASIC search would provide plenty of information...which you provide near-none on any of your posts. SO, "Doing nothing" is the best answer to most your questions because don't seem serious or have the initiative to look or provide decent information on what people have asked you.

Just my thoughts...
dylde,

You didn't read the post entirely, i asked those questions regarding 3 different Forced Induction systems, then once everyone answered i asked another serious of question regarding everyone's exp with these systems.

Everyone is going to give you different opinions.


I myself went with a custom turbo set up ( biggest mistake of my life not due to the parts but the company that set it up)

But Focus-Power fixed all my issues, answered all my questions, and now my car runs like a champ. I highly recommend Focus Power for all your needs. But that is MY OPINION based on MY EXPERIENCE. Great People Great Services Great Prices.

Reliability comes from commons sense and proper maintence..

Oil quality is important, dirty oil = poor lubrication on turbo bearing.

Not letting your car idle before shutting off is hard on turbo bearings and oil. I'm not sure the proper cool down egt for gassers is. For my diesel I like 280-330deg. 1-3 min normally.

Letting your engine come up to operating temp before it sees a lot boost is a good idea. A lot easier on your hg as well.

Studs would be on my list..

Hope this helps, it sure heps my diesel surive 70+psi.

matrixx Your main goal should be to devise a plan on what you want from your car. Unless you have tons of cash I see this ending bad

SVT motor. I really don't have a HP goal, been doing research on boosted focus threads. Main goal is MORE TORQUE.
