Focus power stage 1 turbo kit --Dyno inside--

Tom at focus power installed his stage 1 turbo kit on a stock focus, its only other mod were adjustable cam gears.

The differences between this kit and toms "big" kit are, no intercooler or intercooler piping and a different turbocharger. The turbo with this kit won't make as much power as the turbo in his "big" kit.

The kit is non intercooled, makes 8 psi and as you can see below makes very nice power on 93 octane fuel.

Cost is $ 2,795.00 for the kit, tuning will also be needed. Toms sells his MIC kit with a calibrated MAF, 42 lb/hr injectors and a custom burned chip, the MIC is $ 850.

You could also source the MAF and injectors yourself and have say, an SCT chip tuned for your car. There are a few choices out there for tuning.

Ok, stupid question: What happens in the absence of the intercooler? That makes me think that the engine/turbo would be prone to overheating, but at the same time I don't believe Tom would release a kit without one if it would cause issues. Bit of help?

It does look like a nice setup if you want the FI but don't want to go as hardcore as the full kit, a nice in between I guess is its target? Cool development at any rate.

So how much of a hp and tq gain is there? Also, how much would it add to a 2004 SVTF.

for the SVT you would have to get a differnt kit, this one is for the standard zetec.

as for gains, the stock zetec motor is rated at 130hp at the crank, this kit puts down 196 to the wheels. that is quite a nice improvment, though i dont remember the calulation of crank HP to wheel HP to give you an exact number.

your engine temp will be fine if you plan on running up to 8 psi. any more than that, and youll def. blow your engine. thats why most turbo kits will come with an intercooler, so you can push more psi.

Intercooling in most modern turbo kits is usually needed when exceeding 10 psi, at least with the focus.

This kit is designed to be a low cost alternative to something like the vortech.

Also don't be so hung up on the #'s, at least the whp #'s, its the wtq #'s that are important, that is what makes the car accelerate, its what you feel.

I have the SVT STG1 kit finished as well just working the bugs out of the tuning

This kit is a 8/9PSI kit MAX unless you add an intercooler and the kit is 100% upgradeable to my full kit , This kit is made for the people that dont want to add high octane fuel but 93 IS A MUST 6/7 PSI and 91 fuel works great with a loss of about 10/15 HP/TQ

The cam gears were installed and dyno tuned but only netted 2.3 HP gain

This kit DOES NOT need a boost controller ,The above dyno was with only the external waste gate controlling the boost with a boost controler a little more mid range could be had

This kit DOES NOT need a BOV but a flange could be added at no charge if you feel the sound is needed

This kit DOES need tuning and tuning DOES NOT come in the 2795.00 cost of the kit

Hope this helps

Thanks focaltech for posting this

Tom
