But things brought to my mind are trucks for that price which suck to drive. Maybe a forester?

I wonder where my Powerworks would fall on the reliable, fast, cheap business triangle.

Fast and Reliable I would assume.... also given the MI person price probably would be on the cheaper end of the scale haha..

I'd say reliable and cheap but realistically it would depend on your definition of cheap and your definition of fast.

a pwsc'd focus is a billion times better than a stock focus in power however you're still going to get hassled by relatively stock stage 2 subaru's evo's mazdaspeed3's and well built stock turbo 1.8t vw's and wrx's

its cheap for a full boost setup definitely, but for someone whose got say a $4k focus it's more than half the price of the car.

IMO the powerworks is one of those "the sum of its parts is greater than its whole package leads you to believe"

the blower whine, instant torque and dead nuts reliability of the kit makes me miss my pwsc all the time (not the car it was on though because goodnight that focus was a lemon!)

ha ha. Thanks, I would have to agree with what you all posted. Not the fastest but fun for a relatively reliable daily driver and considering the kit cost $5000 brand new (prob overpriced), isn't priced too bad.

For some reason, the add (first link at the top) raises a red flag for me considering I discover my Supperlegeras had been stolen at the same time. oh well, water over the dam at this point.
