Focus-Power DIY Turbo kit

This is an update for the DIY turbo kit , SPA is working with me to make the 2012-2015 Cast Turbo manifold and things are going well . I received first pictures this week , made the small changes I wanted to the CAD file and they now have the new changes , I hope to have the first set of manifolds in 8-10 weeks

For those that havent seen the DIY Turbo kit ( not the full kit )







Many have emailed me asking what this DIY Turbo Kit will do , I have not had a chance to finish the tune and had to get my Wife back to the Dr , this is a short WOT 3rd gear pull to I think it was 4800 low boost vs same exact Focus NA engine with my new intake and my tune on it

It has seen over 205 but dont have that dyno where I am at , so I think thats the first NA Focus Engine to see over 200?????

Tom

Sweet! I love seeing these two pictures. It's just such a clean turbo install!

What all is "missing" from the DIY kit that would need to be sourced? I like the option of going with a larger turbo and external wastegate of my choice!

Focus-Power - DIY Turbo Kit Info

What You Get:

SPA Manifold ( this has not been finished yet but is at SPA and I have put the OK to first CAD )
2.5 Down pipe with V-Band clamp for ease of install
Waste gate down pipe going back into the 2.5 down pipe slip style
Piping from Turbo to Intercooler
Intercooler
Piping from Intercooler to TB
Piping from Turbo to Filter



Price : TBD


Options Will Be:

Comp Turbo with v-band installed ($825.00 When bought with DIY Kit ) This is a very good spooling turbo and will make 350HP at the wheels

==========================================
What You Need To Get:

Turbo
BOV
Waste Gate
Hoses (2) 2 inch , (1) 2 to 2.5 , (2) 2.5 , (2) 2.5 to 3 inch (1) 3 inch
Clamps 16
Bolts,washers,nuts
Oil feed line -3
Oil return line
Vac lines
Filter
Depending on power goals Injectors

All of these parts can be purchased from eBay or any Turbo stores. Shop around to find the best deals.
==========================================

Remote Tuning:
Custom Tune with new XCAL4 shipped 950.00
Custom tune if you have XCAL 550.00

The DIY kit is for the people that want more then a entry level turbo kit and going for bigger HP down the road , this kit can start at 200 hp and go to 350hp with the Comp base turbo option , I see no reason this DIY wouldnt support over 450HP to the wheels with the right turbo

My 2 cents....Probably 350 reliably and 400 MAX with the risk of kaboom. The focus RS is a good example of pushing a 4 cylinder.
