JPfocus23 How much was your header and where did you get it? A link would be much appreciated!

SPRAYPAINT A DIRECT INJECTED ENGINE IS NOT NEW TECHNOLOGY. I ASK THE QUESTION THAT HOW CAN A DIESEL HAVE A TURBO WITH VERY HIGH COMPRESSION. ANSWER: DIFFERENT HEAD DESIGN, HEAD STUDS, BETER GASKETS, TUNING, TUNING, TUNING. A TURBO ON OUR CARS IS NOT A BAD IDEA IF YOU HAVE THE $$$ TO PUT INTO IT. MYSELF, I WANT A N/A CAR THAT HAS MORE THAN THE ST.

Back on topic now. I have done KSport coilovers, TSW 18X8 et40 wheels, removed the airbox top with OEM filter, removed the rear muffler and had a straight pipe installed in its place, OBX header, and SOLID (NO BUSHINGS AT ALL) engine torque mount. In that order.

I plan to put the factory mount back on today. The solid one was just to see "what if". I do not recommend it unless the car is tracked only and you plan to have a rattle trap car in a few years.

JPfocus23 So the supercharger is a possibility, it just isn't worth it because the gains would be limited and have side effects right? And the car would need a tune to help maximize the gains and no one has a tune for car correct.

They had a concept car, but it wasn't a viable proposition or they would have gone further to make it work. My guess was that they realized they couldn't get more power out of the supercharger than the turbocharger on the ST. SVT's headquarters/ office in Allen Park is located at a Roush facility, and therefore Roush does a lot of their development work in their garage for Ford and SVT. There is enough room for differentiation between the Mustang Boss 302, GT500 and the Roush Stage 1-3 Mustangs, however there likely wasn't enough room for the ST and the Roush Supercharged Focus.

JPfocus23 What is the benefit of the ceramic coating? Does it help protect with the high heat? Or is it just for looks?
02-03-2013 11:20 PM
thejsx FSwerks has some nice headers, ceramic coated, otherwise you can go with OBX which is a little cheaper but not coated.. design seems to be pretty similar too..

JPfocus23 I plan on doing a FSWerks cat back this year. I also want to do an intake, still researching about which one want. What headers would you suggest? I've read a little into them, just not sure about which one to get.

12:1 compression doesn't take too well to added boost pressure. Its why the 2.0 L GTDI EcoBoost engine is running at only a 9.3:1 compression ratio compared to the stock Ford Focus, and why it only makes 93 more horsepower as it had to become less powerful and efficient before introducing the boost pressure to try and regain what it lost. That plus the tuning issue, but the stock mechanicals would be a bottle neck compared to the ST as you already have much higher cylinder pressures to start with.
