Super charger or turbo

Hey guys I'm new on here and to the focus family. I got a 2003 zx3 with no upgrades aside grime the intake. And Wana go Big just can't decide between a turbo or a super charger? Any advise?

Welcome! Either way is big $$$. You get more power from the turbo.

You should come to our G2G in a couple weeks to get some ideas and meet the others around here. It's called Ocean Shores Focus Wars 2.

I prefer precision. Don't have to mess with water lines.

Buy a premade kit from a vendor. Top speed I believe has them and so does fswerks.

Stay away from top speed, they have fitment issues and are real slowat delivering your product,so I've heard. Fswerks for sure thou, and with slimshady I agree that's why ihave 2 precisions.and their ballbearing turbos are air cooled not water and oil
