Turbo on a Focus

hey figured I would drop a line on this subject.

I have a 2010 base model ford focus with around 140 hp.

I have decided to do some work on the car and start with the supension and wheels.. and later stick a turbo in it.

Should I? And if so.. what kind?

and if not.. why?

[WELCOME] TO FF! [LOVEFF] I don't have a turbo but I wish I did! A lot of people on the site have turbos in the earlier models. You will run the risk of voiding your warranty if you add a turbo to your car. If you don't care about a warranty, go for it! Fswerks makes some pretty good turbo kits i hear!
