That will depend a lot of what turbo , piping etc that you choose , the safe engine limit is 250 one turbo might do this at 8-9psi another may take 11-12 psi

Like stated 10 psi is a good #

Agreed. Ten psi is great for stock internals

IMO I don't like the fswerks zetec just for one reason. They use the stock manifold when top speeds manifold is much stronger. But with that being said theresa bigger price difference. It all depends on $ for u. There is allways turbo kits for sale here from other FF members. That's how I aquired mine. I got my kit with all the necessary accesories that most companies don't include in their ads for a few hundred less than their brand new kits. Also with top speed they fabricate when you order it so it can take up to 8 weeks to receive it. So patience and $s are a factor for ya. Either way its your choice and IMO don't go through ebay.
