no no no i donated my car to science to have a brand new extremely efficient turbo kit fabricated from scratch around it. it also got the engine pulled and built and got a fuel return setup that very very rarely gets used in a focus. now i have the car back and it would only take a solid day of work to get it running and driving but i simply dont have time to fool with it. working minimum 60-72+ hour weeks every week while trying to keep up with family and friends doesnt leave alot of time for the play toy

if you have EVERYTHING you need you can have the kit on the car with the car running in less than 6 hours. thats also if everything cooperates. you WILL run into snags though so dont get frustrated. thats just how it works.

also agree with sailor. you would do well to do this in stages if this is your only car to drive. do the stuff that you can still drive with and save not point of no return stuff for last. hang intercooler, wire up gauges and plumb the lines, oil pan (plug the sucker), tap the engine for oil feed for the turbo, and then after that you pass the point of no return. you pull the header and intake and install turbo manifold, turbo, wg, bov, hot and cold piping, maf tube, attach lines to everything, etc. but that last bit can be done very quickly if you know what youre doing. also make sure you have egr blocked off before you start. should be able to find egr block off plates on ebay for cheap

Thanks focusmaniaczx3 and sailor, that is a great point i didn't think of by installing everything I can before the point of no return basically. Can you get a good idea of where to install the intercooler without the turbo and turbo manifold installed already then? If it was anything like the link in my first post, http://www.turbozx3.com/howto/turbokit.htm it looks like you have to drill holes in the car to bolt the intercoloer too, which if i imagine if that is the case you have to have everything lined up pretty accurately, right?

And thanks for the information on the egr block, what does that do exactly? Going to google it now.

Correct, SVT avoids that zetec change.

focusmaniaczx3 has the experience doing this, I'm just figuring that pulling the bumper & getting the intercooler/plumbing in place is where you'd be doing the most "fiddling' with the fitment that can get time consuming.

Hi Tom, if the piping is referring to the intercooler/turbo/inake piping on the turbo kit, it will is going to be your latest kit. I started this thread wondering if anyone had a link of installing a turbo kit step by step with pictures, just because it is going to be my first time installing a turbo, and the "how to" posted by people on FF are always incredibly helpful to look at while i'm installing anything for the first time.
