SORRY FOR SPELLING.


And if u are, im 100% sure ur never going to do it, sorry man. If u want to go fast 1 turbo is enough for that lil engine. If u want to be unique then go for it but be ready to spend a lot of money

You're already difrent and neet.

How deep are your pockets? A multi-turbo setup will be custom, so you will either have to shell out a lot of money for a fabricator to create all the necessary plumbing or learn how to do it yourself. Still, the three turbos will set you back quite a bit monetarily, and I'm not sure where you are going to find the room to mount them. Quite frankly, it's just a really bad idea.

For the body kit, my advice would be to wait. If you put one on your car now with those wheels, the stock ride height, and all that chrome, it would simply look foolish. My advice would be to start with the little stuff like painting or plastidipping over the chrome grill and side vents and doing something with the headlights. Wheels are another area that can make a world of difference without but labor or skill.

You could also try painting part of the side mirrors and door handles. It will not only look better, but they would be good places to practice automotive painting which will be a very valuable skill when you are ready to install a body kit.

Work yourself up slowly so you can build the skills you need for larger project, and so you can mold your car more inline with you future vision before there's no turning back. There are a lot of simple mods floating around this forum and over the internet, try your hand at some of the ones you like and go from there.

Welcome to FF and happy modding
^Very useful info right there!

I understand your feeling about wanting to be different but, 3 turbo's just sounds silly.

F2 did a twin turbo showcar a while back: http://www.superstreetonline.com/fea...o/viewall.html

Theres no need for it though, one will do anything you want it to as long as its sized properly. Couldnt even imagine trying to package 3 under the hood

Eh, not really the case. A small, efficient turbo by its self will be just fine. A turbo will not help with gas mileage. Quite the opposite.

How about just trying a regular Focus with a turbo kit first? It'll be different enough as it is.
