Who knows anything about topspeed performance?

I've been looking for a new car for almost a year now, and I thought I was pretty dead set on an SVT Focus until I realized how many people turbo the plain zx3.

I did some quick research and it seemed like one of the few that had a reputation for dealing almost entirely with the Focus was topspeed. They apparently have a turbo kit that makes 12 psi and 270 whp on the stock engine, plus higher psi injectors and an upgraded clutch. Who can fill me in on this?

I was kinda looking for a personal opinion and what people who have used their products have to say. Obviously it they're a vendor on here they must have a decent reputation, I just want to hear the end user story.

They make great products.


But because they are a small operation, they are kinda slow to build complete kits, and are backlogged the majority of the time.

Yep that's the only problem. Put an order in and receive 6 to 12 weeks later. But other than that great products and reputation is A+
