http://www.mishimoto.com/ford-focus-...kit-02-04.html
these silicone hoses to handle that extra heat
http://www.designengineering.com/cat...-lr-technology
wrap the turbo heads and some exhaust parts to keep the engine bay temp down
http://www.designengineering.com/cat...er-sprayer-kit
http://www.designengineering.com/cat...yo2-air-intake
these to reduce intake temp

Water/Methanol injection is cheaper than that CryO2 kit, but that is interesting.

Takes about 1 Hr to remove the pan and replace it , about 15 for a good welder to put in the bung for a 1/2 npt to barbed 5/8 fitting

install a 180 deg thurmostat and lower the fans in a tune , wrap the downpipe and let her eat

O that's right we have the iron oil pan right. for a second there I thought it was aluminum oil pan like the tbird. I also have a another question. How strong is the detect crank shaft I was thinking of installing rods pistons and all of that good stuff but wondering how much boost will the foci crank hold while I save up for a stronger forged crank?

ok so i can leave the stock crank and add forged pistons, forged conneting rods, rings, wrist pins, and clips. Also ive read that you really dont have to tear down the whole engine, that you can just remove the head and the oil pan install the pistons and rods all while the engine is in the car?



ps im thinking if its possible boosting anywhere from 15-25 psi if possible and what type of whp will i be making
