steeda's intake that is still is testing has got 10hp and about 19 tq if i remember right. not bad gains for a simple intake. that with an exhaust would yeild around 20-30hp gain with similar tq gains. crosworth is most likely gonna come out with some parts seeing as to how they took part in a focus st that is gonna be at the sema show.

going from 230-240 hp stock to 250-260 from an intake and exhaust isnt a bad deal. match that with a tune and you could be close to 300 but like tom has said that turbo is holding the car back. takes a gaint drop right at the peak. a slightly bigger turbo would take untill 3000-3500 to spool up but would give better results with the right tune and breathe easy mods.
