I want to say something here..

Me and Fordcus Fan may differ on our views of which form of FI is best and I'm sure that over time we both may have misinterpeted each others posts... which is easy to do on a forum.

But that doesnt mean he doesnt know what he's talking about, I'm sure he's a very compentent mechanic and educated as well.

And I will admit that sometimes I am biased towards turbo's... I try not to be but I am not always able to pull it off.

I would like to apologize for any misunderstandings that may have occured and I invite him to contribute any helpful information he has to this thread.

Be it either turbo or supercharger, in the end it all boils down to 2 things... preference and budget.

All boost is good... and some boost can be GREAT!!!

I dont like seeing fuel pressure go below 40psi and some people will run it closer to 30psi..... plus its really just a guessimate from motor to motor.

does a 3" exaust really benefit a S/C focus that much? I was under the impression that it was just turbo...

Now your warning me that my post is thick with sarcasm? If the warning was directed toward everyone, why is the quote box on with my Label? If you need times, dates & threads of the insulting responces which can STILL be seen by everyone I can provide them OR if I'm wrong and/or making a big deal out of nothing, then give me my first strike & I will move on.

Yes, it was thick with sarcasm, I'm sure everyone can see that. No one is questioning your mechanical knowledge. Like I said earlier, your post had the potential to start a flame war between everyone over which method of FI is better, that is why I singled it out.

If you have any further questions or comments about this, pm me rather then posting them here.

Thanks

3" exhaust will definitly help .... you can even see gains on NA motors... and yes there is dyno proof.
