I dont think you have to do much. I would imagine if you have a mtx you could just use turbo. But if you have atx I would suggest buying a lentech automatic since our stock auto's only hold 180. If you go with focussport you should buy both stages because you really want that intercooler if thats your daily driver.

Other engine upgrades would be pistons,ARP main and head bolts , wouldnt do cams , adj cam gears, clutch, Fly wheel, ported head and stainless valves

Bah, ATX, I have one too, You gonna be droping another couple grand for a better atx. Heres the site http://www.lentechautomatics.com/ , sell atx that can handel 290, and 400hp easy. Click on the Front Wheel Drive one.....Your gonna need the street terminator which is gonna run you 2 grand. R you can just run enough boost to have 180. But for that money I would just go NA.....

Lol, I have the money to do turbo and lentech auto. My dad wont let me do any of it because of my damn warranty. And he got the extended plan, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Then I allready installed FS exhaust so its allready illegal since I took cat off. And I put CAI and you know Ford will trace any problem you have in your engine with your CAI. It could be your alternator and they wouldnt fix it because you have a CAI. I hate Ford, My next car is gonna be a Mazda probably. The focus has alot of potential, and I wish my dad would let me unlock it :-(.
