Is their Focus one CARB listed?

I'd just noticed that on one advertised for the BRZ.

Checked on another site and I see what Tom was mentioning about the different super chargers. Here is the link but it doesn't specific for my state but says it passes EPA and Carb emission requirements.

Yeah, read enough to get to the fine print where you need to check the specific application for approval numbers.

It's costly to get the CARB approvals, even intakes for some duratecs are only CARB approved for certain years - even though the engines didn't change in a subsequent year (K&N).

I had this kit second hand you will definitely want the 10psi pulley.
cons:The issues i had was sucking up water due to the location of the the intake I just made a shroud of sorts out of aluminum, but Ct has the worst roads in the US so we can get major puddles. The other issue i had is the shaft bearing gave out, and it cost to much to get it replaced. I dont think you will have either of these issues though

Positives: The sounds of the supercharger brings the girls to the yard! It takes longer then turbos to spool but once your in boost in launches.

If your happy with staying with the boost that this kit will create go for it you will love it, but if you ever want to go bigger as most of us car guys do you may want to go a different direction.Hope this helps

I will say it again , go with the larger SC unit if going ProC and add the bigger boost pulley if your ordering this new its the only way to do the ProC

Then after you over come the cost and enjoy it a bit do a front mount intercooler

I think the 2.55 pulley is the one you'll want for higher boost. If you decide that you want even more boost, the overdrive crank pulley from CFM will help out. At that point you'll need to do some math to see what RPM you'll be spinning the blower at certain engine RPM points.
