Rotrex super charger??

SoI came upon this while reading some old posts about superchargers for the 2.3 focus... Its a Ford 2.3 duratec, but its the Mondeo.(fusion)


Wondering about this... With slight modifications it would most likely work.

Just go turbo.

Even the strongest superchargers are barely comparable to a decent turbo. Why waste the time and effort on a maybe when there are plenty of options for you to make that power (and potentially much more).

Moved to "General Forced Induction". As sad as it is, turbo is the best option for the Focus. Plus it will be much cheaper than trying to fabricate that supercharger to work with your 2.3L.
