which is more reliable?
 
I don't know if this question has been asked before, and if it has I'm sorry that I asked again.

Which is more reliable?
Which has more torque?
Which will have more MPG?
Which is easier to install/lest amount of parts?
Which has the LOWEST cost to power gain ratio?

Turbo kit, Vortech SC, or JRSC?

There only as reliable as the parts you use and how you treat/take care of them.

agreed with tom as in your sig just says you drive a FOCUS...okay that tells us everything....not....to answer your question you have to describe what you do with your car what you want to obtain and maintain and what your future plans would be too

SVT motor. I really don't have a HP goal, been doing research on boosted focus threads. Main goal is MORE TORQUE.

Your main goal should be to devise a plan on what you want from your car. Unless you have tons of cash I see this ending bad

A Turbo by far makes more TQ then any otther type of boost

ok, thank you Tom.

Now which kit is more reliable compared to price? Topspeed, Focus Power, SPA/CFM, or custom?

Any recommendations?

Reliability comes from commons sense and proper maintence..

Oil quality is important, dirty oil = poor lubrication on turbo bearing.

Not letting your car idle before shutting off is hard on turbo bearings and oil. I'm not sure the proper cool down egt for gassers is. For my diesel I like 280-330deg. 1-3 min normally.

Letting your engine come up to operating temp before it sees a lot boost is a good idea. A lot easier on your hg as well.

Studs would be on my list..

Hope this helps, it sure heps my diesel surive 70+psi.

Everyone is going to give you different opinions.


I myself went with a custom turbo set up ( biggest mistake of my life not due to the parts but the company that set it up)

But Focus-Power fixed all my issues, answered all my questions, and now my car runs like a champ. I highly recommend Focus Power for all your needs. But that is MY OPINION based on MY EXPERIENCE. Great People Great Services Great Prices.
