Exclamation What options are available for the SVT now?

Looking into trying for boost since I have the budget, but coming up short on options. What ever happened to Powerworks and Jackson Racing superchargers? I know Procharger is out there, but it's way outside my budget and doesn't come with everything now. And building a turbo kit from scratch will break the bank with rebuilding the engine just to handle it.

So what's out there?

The stock Svt can handle boost. Turbo setups on stock Svt can peak around 300whp. Been thinking of modifying the FSWERKS zetec kit to work on my Svt. It is about 4k but that's with all the upgrades and using a regular zetec manifold and heatsheild for a stealthy look. Not mad power but 275whp easy safe daily tune is cool and is enough to be above a 2.3 stage 2 duratec powerlevel

Tom is the man when it comes to power for the Focus. Have a tune from him. Highly recommend you follow his lead.

My engine is probably not in the best shape for having 100,000 plus miles. I know I need to check/rebuild a few things.

I was thinking about it. Have to wait until tax return comes in, and then get a nice tune from Tom

My engine is not as clean as yours is, haha. I wish i had the time to just pull it and clean it. But after helping with a few engine swaps, it's just not a thing I want to do.
