Used high flow cat that you're going to gut?

OIC. Gotcha.
I assumed you meant buy a stock used vs getting a high flow cat.

But if there were lower prices,it might lead to more volume. 5k is a lot of money, especially when the kits for older foci go for 3.5k.

Don't get me wrong. I'm sure tom has priced it fairly due to the amount of fab he had to do, it's just steep.

lol... You must be new to all of this.

K04 kits in the VW/Audi world run ~$1,600-$2,600 and that's just manifold and turbo. This doesn't include all the plumbing, intercooler, oil lines, etc. Not to mention the cost of the tune.

Link to the older Foci Turbo kits for 3500.00 ? I have never seen them

Keep in mind the 4500.00 MK3 Full Turbo kit comes with the SCT xcal4 and a full custom boost tune with free lifetime unlimited tune updates , thats almost 1000.00 of the MK3 Full kit cost

If there is a 3500.00 Turbo kit I have missed for the older Foci did it come with the 1000.00 flasher/tuning thats needed ? If not then its the same cost as mine ???

I think FSWerks has kits for previous gen foci for $3500-$4200 complete. I think you're the only one with anything for the mk3, and it's a very nice kit. I just think more people would consider it if it was a little cheaper. 5k is alot of money to put into a focus.

Don't ever combine the words Turbo and cheap...even if you buy just the turbo, wastegate, bov, wideband, etc and fab up your own manifold, hot and cold pipes, etc... still looking at $2 grand and you would have to have welding and fabrication skills
