the turbonetics t3 super60 is a very good turbo for you i think. spools up VERY quickly and isnt very big at all. the drawback to this one is its size. because it is so small you cannot make as much boost so you would be limited to the mid 300s in horsepower. but if you are not planning to build the bottom end of your engine and shoot for the moon on power then it would be great for you. just my $.02

I'll look into that. I'm going nowhere close to mid 3's for awhile mainly because of the cost issues. I would love to build the motor and boost to all hell but that's just a dream. 200 would be satisfactory right now. That seems like a huge goal considering it's a 130hp motor.

*prepares flamesuit* You could use an FMU to add fuel pressure while under boost, its an old skool way of doing it but if you want to go pure junkyard and save money its what i would do.

The fmu eliminates the need for tuning and is good for low boost, you cant just toss in bigger injectors you would still need a tune for those.

*edit* im surpised no one has corrected me yet, turns out the focus has a 'returnless' fuel system so an fmu cannot be used.

easy there cowboy! that wont work with the focus. we have a returnless style fuel system that wont allow that shenanigans. gotta have a tune, gotta have upgraded fuel injectors, upwards of 300hp gotta have a kenne belle boost a pump for additional fuel, upwards of 350hp gotta have a return style fuel system of some sort with a bigger pump whether it be a fuel cell, converting the stock tank to a cell, or making a surge tank setup like im running.

EDIT: just saw your last post lol

edit edit: you will also need injectors for sure for 200whp. you might as well get some like 60lb/hr injectors and be done so you dont have to buy a bigger set in the future. you can put massive injectors in the car and have them turned down with a tune for now but you cant make small injectors exceed their max capacity in the future if you decide you want more. and they dont cost that much more. beats having to spend $250+ twice
