tspitts You might call PSI Motorsports in Kemah. They are all Ford certified technicians and do a lot of turbo work on Mustangs and F150s. I have taken my SVTF to them a couple of times for some general repairs and they did a good job. I don't know anything about their turbo work since I don't have FI on my car, yet, but it might be worth a phone call. They also have a website you can check out.

SvviftSVT Welcome.
From the green-eyed (literally and jealous) svt owner.

Wish I could help with info.

PocketRocket I'm amazed at the reception. I have been sorta on the down low, mainly while I was saving money to put into my car. Now i'm pumped to get this turbo in then start putting my own touch on the car. I will definitely try to make it out to the meetup, and if any of you guys find those mechanic #'s a PM would be greatly appreciated!

joesperformance unfortunently, i dont know any shops off top of my head that do turbo's on Focus's, but then again, ive always turbo'd my vehicle's myself....

hmmmm, let me look up 2 shops, they might be able to help u, or at least send u in right direction..... i know a couple of the guys at one of the shops....

sleepyboy Make sure you have a base tune ready to go. If you just install it don't drive it till the tune is ready to go. Even if you don't get into boost you could still run it lean which means boom to the engine. Personally I wouldn't take it anywhere to install it, I would just do it myself. Can't imagine it would be too hard to install. Probably take a day or two.

tukaniSVT There is a place that one of our other members took his car to for tuning and installing his supercharger .... may need to give that guy a call and find out where he got it installed. That was close to League City.

And years back in 04, a performance shop in the Westpark area installed a Turbo on an SVT Focus.

I can check.

And yes, none of the Houston guys have installed any FI on any of our cars, so us working on it would be a bit new to it as you.

If you decide to go to a reputable performance shop, I would make sure they can dyno tune your car with your tuner that you got from FSWerks. It would be a hassle and cost you more if you didn't have the tuner that they need to tune your car after installing the FI.

VonKrause GUH!? That's awesome! You have to let us see it, also it would make you the envy of all 3 of us second gen guys. What part of downtown you live in? I live near north loop in the Heights, there are a ton of us here in Houston and we all love working on cars, I personally would love to get my hands on a turbo or help install one, there is a guy in Lousiana that just did a turbo install on his 2nd gen and we might be able to get his help or get him down here for an install day if he's up for it. His screen name is Slammed_2.0, talked with him a few times really cool dood. Hit him up for some info.

Anyway, you should come out to some of the meets that go down every month, the next one is the K1 go kart meet on the 25th. A whole bunch of us are going out to it and it's always fun to meet new peeps.

PocketRocket Yeah, It took a lot of saving and money so i'm pretty excited.
That would be pretty sweet, either way i'm sure someone will pop up with a mechanic eventually.
