Thread title should read HELP* install... sorry! I'm not that illliterate. LMAO!


FINALLY Getting ready to prepare a order for a stage 1+2 kit for my ST and would like to install over the weekend with some friends vs. paying out the ass to have a shop do it if I can avoid doing so....

Right now I'm looking at the FSwerks kit but have also left a message for C-F-M to get back to me on a kit... posted an ad in the classifieds section here as well but I'm serious about getting a turbo kit and would love to share a weekend with a few of the FF crew installing the kit. haha

what are your power goals? reason I ask, Top Speed should be coming out, within a year, a duratec turbo kit.

Also, external wastegate > internal (can the FSW be modified to take a non gated housing?) for boost control.

Clutch? Diff? tires? engine mounts? Tuning?

I'm not going for any major power goals right now at the moment... I just want to get boosted.... looking at fswerks but i'm waiting to hear back from c-f-m as well which boosts focus's.

I want to run a low psi setup initially and work on other thins like differential, clutch stuff like that later... backwards way of doing things... maybe? but I want to get the most expensive thing out of the way first and go from there...

the fsw has proven reliable for many, many people. id want an externally gated turbo/turbo housing and with the 2.3 id go with the 2871 or 3071
