stellablueflame Great input all; keep it coming. I want the kit to have an intercooler with it also. I live in AZ and as any car enthusiast knows it's important to have a great cooling system. I definitely will have to upgrade my clutch to something a lil more sturdier. Any suggestions to pair with 300whp?

Energyblue98 those should all go hand and hand pretty well. 5k will get you about 300whp. I'm not sure about the 2010 focus.. but I know that the older focus's zetec engines will only hold about 220-250whp.. with the exception of the svt holding about 300whp..

I'm sure someone else will chime in which how much your engine will be able to reliably hold.

Mother Focus Talk to Tom (1turbofocus) or FSwerks, refreshing to see someone more clear on goals and budget. Check out the buy sell trade section in this forum might get a kit piece by other member for a good price too. Should be enough to get an LSD and clutch.

Energyblue98 Tell us these things in this priority.

1. Budget
2. Hp goals
3. Reliability (this will effect 1 and 2)

Mother Focus Let's make it easier, what is your budget?
