Any Engine Performance Mods??
 
Hey guys, I am just wondering what performance mods you have done. I've been driving my 2012 Focus for a couple months now and I want to start doing some things to see some performance gains. Any ideas or tips you have would be much appreciated!

fswerks cat back worth about 10whp
you can do cold air intake (steeda, fswerks, Aem, K&N)
headers

these are the most common bolt on for now!

no F/I yet because no tuning is available yet..

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.

Roush had a supercharger on one for SEMA last year. No public release on the kit though.

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.

What is the possibility of a supercharger? I was thinking about this today. Would it be pointless without a tune? How would the supercharger affect the engine compared to a turbo?

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 02-03-2013 10:24 PM

What is the benefit of the ceramic coating? Does it help protect with the high heat? Or is it just for looks?
