Easy- Intake sysytem & computer chip....
Here it goes Most good intakes are made for the ZETEC so inorder for one to fit you have to buy a new TB (Throttle Body) 60mm from www.focus-central.com or a few other places, NO you cant take a TB off a ZETEC and throw it on the SPI IT WILL NOT FIT. Other than the TB issue ANY ZETEC intake will fit. Your best bet with the chip would be the SCT from FC ( focus Central) you custom tune to what you need and then buy off the site.

Medium- Header & Exaust.......
There are lots of choices what you will want to think about is local laws on this one (emmissions test or Sound Polution laws) Now race headers cut out the catalitic converter and runs directly to your exaust, to prevent a CEL (Check Engine Light) you will need to get an 02 cheater, next option is a Shorty header with a Highflow catalitic converter or ORP (Off Road Pipe) the highflow cat will keep you legal and you will not need a 02 Cheater with that setup, while the ORP does the same as the Race header(Cuts out the cat)
Now exaust you have alot of choices too such as brands like Magnaflow,MBRP, Flowmaster, Borla. The biggest thing here is which header you have depends on the sound ( Race header + magnaflow catback = LOUD) the volume of the noise can be controlled by adding a secondary muffler to the system or just buying a FS (Focus Sport) stealth system. Your best bet is to go with a 2 1/4 catback system unless you are going for a major Turbo job then you should get a larger size.

Hard- Port & Polish Heads, Cams, Nitrous,
I have not done any of this YET, so I cant say much about these.

A few other basic mods would be
Under Drive Pullies (UDP)
Suspension
and the biggest one here is the cluster swap if you dont have a Tach

Just use the search feature on the tool bar, and WELCOME TO FOCUS FANATICS
Here are some sites for you

www.focus-central.com I was told they are having a little trouble with customer service so be warned
www.blackdiamondracing.com
www.focussport.com
www.mbrp.com
www.magnaflow.com
www.escortfocus.com

And yes everybody I just copied and pasted my old post, I'm just lazy like that

Oh and about the turbo there is not a kit for the SPI waterboy is just the mad scientist here and custom made one, but you dont need a turbo to go fast. The SPI cand be fast N/A (Naturally Asperated) It just takes a good bit of cash, which you will want the basic mods before the turbo anyway.
