Kit Name: Blaast Performance stage 1 Zetec Turbo Kit

Cost Rating 1-10: 10 (probably the cheapest)

Support Rating 1-10: 7

Quality Rating 1-10: ? ( dont know yet ive only had it on for about 1k miles)

Price: $2700(before upgrades i think). $3070(after bigger turbo and extras)

Comments: i dont know if the kit was a good deal. i havent had it long enough. i dont know if the install was as big of a headache as the mechanic made it seem. i believe alot of the problems were due to the mechanic. althought were there were several issues. shipping was extremely slow. wrong MAF was sent and caused a problem but i just went and bought an IAT sensor and they reimbursed me fixing the problem. i wasnt happy with the fact that there was no mention of deleting the AC until after it was being installed. I do like the fact that the kit came with a driveable tune supposedly from steeda and the car is a beast now! still wanna get it tuned by Tom to REALLY get it movin.

Kit Name: Focus Power
Cost Rating 1-10: 9
Support Rating 1-10: 8
Quality Rating 1-10: 8
Price: $5000?
Comments: Installed at 85,000 miles, currently has 99,000 miles. Been through several upgrades, started life as pull thru MAF, changed to blow thru MAF (much better!), uses SCT Pro Racer package which haas allowed my tuning of the lower end drivability stuff. Run it at 10# ... could it go higher ... probably but I wanted a reliable daily driver that had some omph when I wanted to go and that is what I have. Been on for 3 years?

Thumbs up Jrsc

Kit Name:JRSC
Cost Rating 1-10: 8
Support Rating 1-10: 9
Quality Rating 1-10: 10--BIG TIME
Price: $3,000
I have had my JRSC kit on my car for the last 3 years and 45,000 miles. This is the only power adder that i have put on the car at this time but want to start either not spending any more money on this toy and invest in another V8 or start tearing into the head and getting all the other minor bolt on here too..
