Question Turbocharger for 2003 Focus SVT

I was hoping someone could help me select a turbocharger (kit) for my 2003 Focus SVT.

The sky is definitely not the limit for the cost of the project and I would like to do some, if not all of the installation. Is tuning possible for me to do without a dyno or is it best to get a shop to do?

Brief background:
The car is all stock, 9000 KM, it is my everyday driver and I am looking for around 240 WHP on pump gas.

I was looking into Garrett's GT series turbo's but need help selecting components to make a complete kit.

Any information and recommendations is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
A

Are there any other options other than Tom's turbo? Any kits out there that use Garrett's GT series turbo's?

Yeah.....Tom then would be your best bet 'cause honestly I just went in a shop that had done the work on a ZX3 in Quebec City.

It's a fun drive all the way to NC..:)

Peace....

I am thinking about doing the installation myself or have a local shop do the install....Cannot see myself doing the drive to NC - actaully just came back from there and I wish I would have stopped in, oh well.
The cost of the kit is huge so I want to do some comparisons other kits available and see what I can or cannot do wrt installations to save some bucks!

If you don't have alot of money then don't go turbo grab a Vortech Supercharger you will have alot of horsepower just not as much torque as a turbo

Is Tom's Turbo reliable? I mean will it put too much pressure on the engine?
