Well this is the cheapest way to boost. Well there are a few things to keep in mind when boosting any car.

1. Knowing your engines Maximum Boost/HP/TRQ limit and abiding by them.

2. Using quality parts in a turbo kit is part 1 of 2 major problems.

3. 2nd problem is probably the biggest problem with blowing engines under moderate HP and Boost numbers. That would be your TUNE!!!! A proper tune will be the key element in boosting. My own turbo kit lasted just fine with Toms tune.

So whatever your concerns are about boosting they have been looked at many times by many people. Keep in mind that there is that .01% that your engine is already close to mechanical failure and boost will just bring that problem around faster.

Well, it's never a bad idea to get the turbo just to give the focus a little "oomf". I'm sick of freakin' family minivans and trucks/suv's always overtaking me even though I'm flooring it
