just get the powerworks. you'll spend more but you'll be much more satisfied with the end result. the powerworks kit uses the same blower as the svt jrsc

Yeah, Powerworks (Cosworth) all the way. I've yet to see a kit as well thought out in all areas as the Powerworks.

also... Many find JRSC to be a big disapointment.

the biggest setback with the powerworks is the price. retail is almost $5k, but no one is selling the JRSC for retail, so hopefully the dealers will catch the hint and do the same thing with the powerworks

5k is a bit pricey, imo. i would rather get a cosworth engine if i were spending that much green.

well, the cosworth designed engine for the focus runs about $3600, unless you can find an svt in a salvage yard. personally, I would pay the extra money for the name. cosworth designed the motor in the svt, they know more about it than anyone, so I would happily pay extra to have a supercharger that they designed. as for the standard focus, you'll be getting a very reliable kit, which will make lots of power/tq, and you'll be paying a little for the name as well, but again, I would gladly pay for a cosworth product, because cosworth knows their shit, they don't skimp on any details *cough*jacksonracingtuningwithablackbox*cough*
