focus vs. contour

I'm selling my svt contour really soon, and thinking about picking up a focus. How do they compare? I've heard the focus feels higher in quality, atleast the SVT. Has anyone driven the svt focus and the svt contour? I was wondering how the transmission of the getrag feels to the mtx-75(don't really like). Also, how easily upgradeable are the focuses? I've seen several superchargers on cars for sale, how much do the supercharger kits cost vs. turbo kits and how much do the stock internals hold up to? My next car I definately want to either supercharge or turbo, and I'd like better gas mileage too, how do the focuses do in the city? How easy are they to work on, like changing a clutch, installing suspension? What should i look for in a used focus, and if I'm going to be modifying one does it matter if I get an SVT focus or a regular focus?
