Ebay is probably your best bet if you're looking for a kit.

Yes, a motor swap will void your warranty

The thing is tho the warrenty is only on the engine and tranny so if i do a swap and build the tranny up i dnt need it anyways, right? And what header/manifold would be best for a turbo setup on my spi and what kit would be best if i didnt do the swap?

Well lesson learned, if I was you I wouldn't buy any sort of turbo kit for the car/swapping motors in and try to pay it off as quickly as you can. How many miles are on it? These motors tend to have a valve dropping issue, if you haven't already researched that

BUT, if you still want to go this route, this thread may be helpful:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s....php?t=216106&
