In comparing the two, I think FS provides better customer support. Thus, their product is superior regardless of all other factors (in my biased opinion). Nice comparison thread.

Personaly I've had awsome customer support from F2. In fact since they have to source out there tuning, F2 has put alot of there own money into tuning my car to figure out the problem that I had. I've had the car back since atleast since January and no problems since. Also i'm getting the revised piping for the turbo kit. F2 redid there piping so people who want to run the FSwerks lower stress bar can. I think thats awsome that they'll change stuff to make there product work with other companies parts.

That is pretty awesome if you view it that way. Ricardo must have gone a long way to help you, and I will admit he is always willing to help a customer any way he can.

My viewpoint is that FS doesn't need to change their product or fix problems that occur after install/tune. As a production unit, the FS kit is superior...at least from a business standpoint.

As far as driveability, I have no idea. I have never driven a boosted focus.

I'll PM you once I have all the new info about the kit. After all my car is the first one with the production kit. There were bound to be a change or two. Look at the changes there exhaut manifold has gone through. People still love those.

Cant wait to see where this goes. I think you may have opened a can of worms with this one Streetracer. HA! Great information however, I was getting tired of trying to compare two different browser windows to see which one I would be interested in.

Didn't mean that you would get into trouble. I just ment that this is going to be a good thread to watch the owners of two different products battle it out. Which will be a good thing. It will be some time before I can afford to do this mod so as much pro and con information I can collect will be great. Again, GREAT Post. Thanks.
