Most of the components should be available separately.

I ain't gonna lie; the car looks pretty pro. I'd love to get a crack at the internals if it won't break the bank--but really, I'd settle for the cosmetics. I upgraded from some crap 90's rav4 to this brand spanking new Ti, so I have been pretty pleased with the performance, etc. Unless you take your car to the track, kinda pointless to have all that hp. 90+mph = fat $$$ ticket/jail (ive taken my Ti to 120... Plenty fast lol)

Cool

I love the front fascia!! The aesthetics are spot on IMHO, better looking than the catfish opening {grille} of the ST. Sure, I'm certain it's functional but that's what the MazdaSpeed 3 guys say too.

If ROUSH's past is any indicator a "S3" offering is going to equal or better the SVT version from the showroom. BTW, that will be warrantied.
As mentioned before, ROUSH is polling potential customers for what would be smart packaging.
PERSONALLY ... I like the ROUSH Focus and would love to have a ROUSH styled daily driver. I would not track my focus so I'm not looking for a S3 version but I agree it would have to be able to compete with the ST to justify the cost.

A supercharger uses fuel to spin.
A turbo spins for free. I'd rather have an ST. But then I'm biased.
I bet you couldn't turbo this engine without excessive engine mods. Maybe with a new cylinder head with larger combustion chamber, different pistons.

This Roushcharger is set-up the way that I would want it to be.

It's outright sexy!

I'm sure that there will be quite a few low-boost turbo kits coming out very soon. Don't sell the '12 so short just yet.
