If your going for 400hp youd probably wanna step it up to a 70mm tb. In order to reach that number youll need a very well built engine, P&P'd head, new valvetrain components, intake manifold, and at least 100 octane. And there are a few other things that will be a neccessity as well.

why 400 hp.....really curious.....I could you put that much down on the wheels and actually see the car launch...........

Like it was said before, the question is not : Can I reach 400 hp?....but :
Can I drive a 400 hp powered Focus?..........

Have fun.......

Peace......................
