Yea but there stock boost is only set at 12 psi which means theyre not gaining awhole lot from the turbo slap a supercharger on one and u could get pretty close to the same output just sayin

i believe that it was aftermarket. I would assume it made less power also.

You may have seen a supercharged focus with RS badges, but I doubt anyone would take a real RS, pull of the turbo, and put on a supercharger. That does not make any sense at all. That would be a ton of work and $$$ for little or no gain.

That explains things. It wasnt a real RS. The RS cant be imported here in the states. There are a few guys who have imported the body panels and converted their cars, but they arent a true RS.

Ive seen a few replica RS's that were SVTs converted with a Jackson Racing supercharger.
