We can get that already without turbo, just header, exhaust and intake, not even needing tune, throttle body or intake manifold, putting a Turbo on top of that could add another 30%, unless the DCT can handle 50% or more torque over its rated amount, its unlikely. The DCT shouldn't hold back the 5MT though.

It's only a matter of time.

I think they should have used the wet clutch DCT from Europe.

I agree, but MPGs is why, but it would have stopped all the whining about DCT issues.

Eventually I will import one so I can turbo but that is a 3-5 year plan

Mind posting a link to the headers? Has anyone had any problems with doing this yet?

There is currently no header specifically for the mk3, injected is working on one, or you can buy the ones for the older focus and modify where it connects to exhaust so that it fits, Everybody that I know that has one bought them used

That it would lol
Edit:my header WAS just a cheap obx racing from eBay that I did as an experiment and they were ok but it needs to be lengthened about an inch and add a second o2 port,I have a new custom shorty header I'm gonna try hopefully this week.and on the worth it note I'd get a f2 over any other.
