Low boost would be daily drive right around 350hp but for track days and high boost tune I'd like 400-450whp. Bay temps I can reduce with some dei exhaust wrap and a turbo cover. I have not really looked into temp cooling options yet other than exhaust wrap, intercooler with high flow, and possibly a new oil cooler. Don't see many people have upgrade radiators on there build list. Also I do have the low temp thermo and housing so it should help heavily. Engine temps shouldn't be bad because it would only be a sudden increase at wot for a short amount of time. DD wouldn't be effected because once I'm at 70mph I just cruise and boost wouldn't be very high even when accelerating in 5th 6th gear to about 80mph. I see no reason to go faster than that bcuz I'm at the cut off line of losing my license if they catch me doing over 80 in a 55 hahaha

stock block and crank is fine. dont need to waist your money on head or cams to get that power level. oem axels and 6spd will do just fine. i would get a clutch master clutch instead of the spec. add a 180deg thermostat and azfs22c plugs on the list

Update:

Just so everyone has the info incase anyone else was wondering the same things i was. Tom emailed me and was able to resolve 95% of my questions.

Stock block and crank can hold up to about 600hp

Stock axles and Getrag are fine for 450whp(after that i didnt ask so i dont know)

The head is %100 fine stock for up to 450whp. He advised me to replace gaskets and use ARP Studs. Most likely will go with titanium vavles and retainers as a precaution while i have the head open anyhow.

Thanks for the info:

I have upgrade wires, colder plugs, and 180 degree thermo already :D

What about fuel support. Obviously at this level a Boost a pump wouldnt suffice. I asked Tom about a single walbaro upgrade but he reccomended a fuel instead. Do you have any idea what they run and what there Hp limits are tim?

it will make 350whp with bap but not 450

walbro will not work in the focus unless you switch to the return fuel system. the stock pump voltage is varied to maintain proper fuel pressure and flow instead of the pump being ran a consistent speed and the excess fuel being returned to the tank. this will not work with the walbro b/c it will wear out the gears inside the pump, it was designed for constant gear speed not variation.

the price of this would depend on how you go about doing it. some use stock tank with a return line and other things trying to get it to hold fuel at the pump with 1/2 tank. some switch to a fuel cell to avoid the fuel starvation problem at 1/2 tank

i may also be working on a surge tank set up very soon.

Ok, because this is a daily driver a fuel cell is out do to the relocation issues involved in that. If I did a BAP, would doing a fuel return system increase my output a little more using the stock fuel pump? Or would it not matter because the pressure varies and there would be no need for a return style on a stock pump. What about if I did a walbaro, with a return system. Still would have the half tank gas problem correct? I wish they just made a direct upgrade fuel pump....

There no way the the focus SVT is the only car on the market with a variable current fuel pump. There has to be some type of pump that can be used from another car or aftermarket. Wouldn't that solve the problem and get rid of the need for a return system? I will do some homework and get back to you on what I find.
