2005 Saleen Focus Turbo

I want to turbo my 2005 Saleen Focus. It's the s121 model. I just wanted to know what turbo would be best for it and exactly what I'd need to do to turbo the car. Thanks for the help.

Question will be determined by couple of things,
1-power goals
2-car use
3-budget

It's a daily driver. I'm looking to get some more power out of it. I don't need anything crazy. I definitely want something that's gonna give me power but won't give me any major problems. I'd be willing to spend more to get a system that won't fail me

Fswerks was crazy expensive! I don't have $3,500.00 to spend. I have a price range of like $1,000-1,500. And would a turbo be best or could a supercharger be better potentially? Also I need to know exactly what I need. I know I need an intercooler and the actual turbo but what else do I need?

That's why I asked, with the budget you have is very difficult to go into a quality and reliable kit. Even after the kit a SCT and tune is half the budget.

Boost isn't cheap or else everyone would be boosted
