You will spend 10K+ at the end of the day setting up your car properly. Ask me how I know.

Motor alone will be 3500+, add turbo kit, drivetrain, etc. There is more that just the motor that needs upgrades after injecting 400hp into a Focus.

lol, i just realized the OP was from Feb of... last year.

The all stock MTX-75 can easily take 350 pound foot of TQ , add a LSD and can go above 500 pound foot of TQ

Egz Its torque that auto transmissions worry about. And a high HP NA build won't have anywhere near the amount of torque a turbo'd engine makes.

04ZTSJelf What could it do NA? Want fairly good HP, but don't wanna drop the $ for a turbo that I really wouldn't get the use out of. Its a DD too.

ZXthrizzle05 as far as I know the focus hasn't seen that high of number from NA but if it does it would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO incredibly hard to use for DD it would be damn near impossible. that's like rally type performance
