beefing up the SVT

I have a 2004 black SVT focus, and was wondering what are some options for increasing horsepower, if i should do a supercharger or a turbo, if so what brands, or what would be some good bolt ons for more power?

Depends on what your looking for. If you want a rocket get a Vortech, if you just want to add some extra pep go with the JRSC which is the route I will take. If money isnt an option and you wanna be chic, get a turbo. If your on a budge but gotta feel the speed, nitrous is your ticket.

i talked to vortech for a while today on the phone and they told me that they post the ENGINE HP on their website which is like 276..................Then after some creative discussion they came clean and said i should get like 230whp and 170wtq..............for the money i dont know if that is worth it or not.............You can get a jrsc for like 2795 shipped with 200whp while you have to pay 3999.99 for the Vortech with like only 30 extra hp WTF???
