saleenmonkey think im going to delete the nitrous and add the turbo! kinda pointless other than the fuel economy of 32mpg and 225hp when wanted by pushing a button.. although i think turbo would be more reliable in the long run....engine rebuilds r not cheap!!!i have been thinking really hard about this ugh!!

Turbo Turtle my zetec/svt kit will be for sale after im finished with maniacs car. i'll be working on the duratec kit as soon as im done with his kit. the price of the full kit will depend on what i can get my turbos for. im hoping for a "byot" kit for 1700 and a full kit for 3500 but those prices are just guesses until i actual get the kit built and figure out taxes fees etc that it will cost me. but they should be with in a couple hundred +/- from that

the kits will not have an off the shelf iron manifold and turbo fitment problems or the price problems found in the kits that have a tubular manifold

ZXthrizzle05 correct, its just tb placement difference

focusmaniaczx3 svt and standard zetec will most likely be the same kit. the only thing that will need changing between the two kits will be 6 inches of cold pipe and a different elbow to put to the throttle body. everything else will be the same.

what about SVT zetec

turbosvtfocus04 I can't run the 4 inch inlet with the 2.5 inch outlet otherwise it does hit. I tried mocking up a 6765.
But yeah the 3 inch inlet with adding a 2 exhaust manifold gaskets I could fit it.

But once you get into the tubular manifold setups is where it gets pricey. One shop by me quoted me $1500-1600 for tubular manifold, dump tube and down pipe to connect to the off road pipe.
