If you're running a small enough pulley, you'll build boost faster but you have to have the engine to handle the boost at the other end.

This is my dyno sheet for my mustang. The larger numbers were my boosted 5.4 the lower numbers were my cammed 4.6


Once again, you can see there really is no spike in the power band and the peak torque is higher in the rpm band.

You saw it cuz I tapped it
True, guess I didn't think that through long enough. A well put together turbo setup would yield similar results too, but it's harder to do.

Turbocharger available yet?

As it's almost 2014, are there any turbochargers for a 2012 yet? I couldn't find much but the roush focus.

Yah you can build it yourself. But you have to remember that the mk3 na's are running a 12:1 compression ratio. Not to great for turbo setup. You will have to wait till there are pistons and cams out for it :)

Remember, under no circumstances never a buy a damn ebay turbo kit.

The only thing usuful from a ebay kit is the piping. Throw the intercooler away and use the turbo as a custom paper weight or toilet paper despenser.

What exactly would be the benefit of a turbo on a NA focus? I would think it would be cheaper just to trade in a NA Focus for a ST. Not to mention all of the other goodies that that would go along with that.
