Focus-Power New Duratec Turbo kit Pics

We feel we are on our final install (kit has changes 3 times because of Diff things we saw on the dyno that we didnt like ) so she is on and close to being dynoed again , I hope to have numbers this week or early next we will have to see how some personal stuff goes this week.


I am pleased that we have been able to run a full 3 inch intake pipe to the turbo and keep the filter out of the engine bay in fact it is installed and you will have a hard time seeing it , I feel any filters in the engine bay using already heated intake air isnt a good thing , My filter will be located tip of filter to bottom of frame is about 2 inches so basicly even with the frame rail or you will have the option to place it inside the inner fender well where the Zetec kit is either way its still in a cool location for intake air and in the dry from sucking water


What i would like opinions on is how the MAF look, this will as allways now be a blow through MAF and is located right where it can be seen, i thought black hoses may look better , I also dont have the VERY SHARP 120Deg turn helping to create turbulance going into the intake , I tested both the 120Deg and mine on the flow bench and it sure does not like the sharp turn that close to the TB and into the intake , The straighter one like i went with flowed MUCH better we will see what it shows on the dyno now it is one of the things i changed


This is a full intercooled kit and is in a Roush so the IC was a pain because of the front bumper

The manifold is also being made of cast and i should have a fitment one in 3 weeks to OK and go into production with. It will be a tubular cast not a log

I have worked very hard on keeping this kit very clean and stealth like under the hood , Opinions there as well

This kit also as you can see has External WG.

2.5 Exh with an option for 3 on the Duratec

Many Options on the turbo

So give me opinions on what you think of where the MAF is and looks and what ever else you see good or bad

It is NOT CARB and no price as of yet

Tom

I personally think that looks very good. The way the motor sits, with exhaust out the back instead of the front helps in the sleeper look at distance and first glance. Very impressive.....there is hope yet. Now I just have to get the lentech Auto to hold the power.

I think the kit looks good so far. I can't wait to see a dyno of it. But I am wondering if you have more pictures of the piping from the turbo to the IC and such. Thankx

Wow!!!

I love how its basicly hidden, I guess the MAF looks fine. Just make the hoses black to hide the kit better and you will be set.

I think the header design look very nice, but for some reason the intake piping/couplers give it an "unfinished" look. Do you plan on using that design in the final product?

Thats what i was talking about with the MAF and how it looked , I do think going to Black hoses would look a little better than the Blue

If it was me.....

Black couplers, paint/powder coat the MAF tube AND turbo manifold black as well.... then even at a good look it would blend in very well and give the "sleeper" look... actually it would almost look stock.

Good Job

EDIT: I also agree with the straight shot for the MAF, looks better and performs better.

I agree with 03OrangeSVT, paint/powdercoat the MAF, but I would even see if you can make the MAF integral to that piping. I'm not sure if your intake plumbing is the same material as your MAF housing, but if so, I would try to make it one pipe, unless that causes problems during install. definitely go with black hoses though and paint/powdercoat the MAF
