BWM2006ZX3 I'm still iffy on the subject because of the TC issue mentioned above. I do not think i can justify the $4500 for stage two and stage ones doesnt seem worth it to me. And with the extra costs of gauge pods and other hardware... Ect

BWM2006ZX3 Can't decide between stage 1 or stage 2...

BWM2006ZX3 At this point, no power goals. I just would like to see what kind of potential it has. For fun right now. Something to putts with. Racing on a drag strip or road course maybe depending on what happens. And so its not like every other focus out there with an intake, exhaust, and drop.

X!FOCUS What are you're power goals? ..and reason's for turbo? (racing, fun, etc..)

mikebontoft Boost is VERY addictive... you'll keep wanting more until there's none at all.

BWM2006ZX3 The only real worries i have are the lower end for one and my Trans. I WILL NOT be doing lower end with initially. And i hope that i won't have to... Crossing my fingers. Somewhere i had heard that the ATX in the 2006 focus could only handle up to about 220whp... I don't know if this is true.

Definately fun to drive! It's a lot of money to drop all at once but if you DO, don't think twice just enjoy it and don't get too carried away. Like anyone else will tell you, boost is VERY addictive!

mikebontoft oh yeah I forgot about that.... throttles always open so there's always boost
