my manifold will be tubular 304ss not cast iron off the shelf. i'll pm you more info.

Sounds awesome. If you can actually get a less expensive kit up for sale in that short of an amount of time that would be amazing. Can't wait to see some numbers!

just wanted to post a little more info on what im thinking my kit will include

tubular stainless top mount manifold with t3 flange and either a 38mm 2 bolt or 44mm wg flange depending on customer goals

3" stainless dp with 4 bolt t3 flange and two o2 bungs

stainless wg piping

2.5 or 3" aluminum hot side charge piping depending on power goals

3" aluminum cold side piping WITH maf flange and bov flange of customer choice

intercooler will probably be 28x8x3.5 with 3" inlet/outlet with all brackets

all couplers, t-bolt clamps, and oil lines/fittings included

oil pan with -10an fitting welded on

for duratec turbo intake piping included, not needed for zetec

i will not be including turbo, wg, bov, or air filter unless the customer requests me get these parts for them. i would be glad to include links or give recommendations on a turbo choice or if the customer doesnt feel comfortable buying these parts for any reason i can get them. but i am not an authorized dealer and can not buy them any cheaper than you and it would raise taxes and shipping prices to where getting them your self would save you a fair amount of money.

i am going to be working with borg warner on trying to become a authorized vendor for them soon. i am hoping i can offer their new EFR line turbos with my kit. if this is the case and i am able to get them backing me then i will offer 2 kits since their turbo's are set up different then most. i'll offer a kit as described above and another kit that includes the efr turbo w/ built in wg, bov, and boost controler which would mean no turbo, wg, or bov shopping around needed.

cold side charge piping will be routed behind driver head light and straight to tb not inside the frame rail

no tuning, tuning software/hardware, sensors, or fuel system components offered with the kit.

may also be selling a return fuel system setup for the focus after i get the kits complete.

Tim

if everything works out ill be dropping my car off in 23 days.

if the thing with borg warner works out do you think you could get a turbo for my goals for less or would it only be a specific set and trim of turbo that you would get a discount on?

also after i get the big turbo on and go for 450 im probably going to ask tom to dyno tune my car. would you want to come up for a few days to see it or would you prefer lots of video documentation? the funny thing is that i think tom's shop is only like a 15 minute drive from the charlotte airport LOL. and im STILL not sold on what clutch to run. im saving buying the clutch for dead last so its going to come down to what kind of money i have to play with. if i can afford the twin disk ill buy it and shoot for 600+ but if i get the 6 puck im going to settle for 450 and hold off for more until the clutch wears out from natural causes. i think by that time i might put a lentech in it and shoot for the moon and leave the mtx behind me.

i have no idea on what price i would be able to get the efr turbo's for. i'll send you more info about them though. i have a friend that works at a diesel shop that is a borg warner dealer and i have been talking to him about it. he can get me a good deal on most all of their turbo's including the s200 series but i havent heard back about the efr's yet. and after i get your kit done i plan on talking to borgwarner myself and not having to go through my friend.

and if you get it on the dyno at Tom's i would love to come see it

Tim
