roger911 Iv heard its gonna be loud. That's why imbthinking about another muffler. And what do you mean about the tuner?..

PSUrivie ok yeah I/H/E/Tune is a nice set up. The header with the race exhaust is LOUD. I ran my car that way and didn't mind the noise, but my wife hated it and I got pulled over for it. How is your tuner? Tom? Randy?

roger911 I have cai, race exhaust, eibach springs that I might take out and get the frpp setup and I also have a tune

PSUrivie ^I would wait and just save for boost. In the meantime, if you really have the mod bug I would start on some suspension mods. Do you have an exhaust?

roger911 I feel like I know nothing when I talk to you and slammed lol. I'm gonna try and save but in the mean time I might get a header for a little more power. Atleast that's something I can do sometime soon.

PSUrivie The kit you are looking at looks like a Chinese knockoff kit. The turbo isn't going to last long. Hot Rod magazine had a big article a couple months ago dealing with these Chinese turbos. I think they bolted one up to a 3rd gen Camaro or something like that. It made power. However, there was tons of fab work and who knows how long the turbo will last. I vote not too long.

Search Google for these knockoff turbos and you'll find some crazy pics (like compressor blades breaking off).

The piping isn't going to directly bolt on to your '11 Focus. You would have to custom cut the pipe. If you have the money to buy the kit you are looking at I would HIGHLY recommend saving that money toward a legit kit (FSWerks, Top Speed, etc). These kits are expensive, but there is a reason for that.

roger911 Seriously? Haha that sucks. I wish I could find one or something used. Now with that one I posted why is the IC piping wrong and couldn't I just use a tune from fsw or find a place that could dyno tune it?

roger911 That's what I was thinking.. It sucks but if that's what I gotta do then so be it.. I need more power so it will be worth the wait. Lol

PSUrivie With that kit you still need many more parts. I would recommend saving your money and buying the full kit.
