Why have I never seen a Turbonetics 60-1 on a Focus? I think this turbo would compliment the Zetec very well. Would I be the first?

Its a bit on the large size for what most of us need in terms of power delivery. Sure its a great turbo... if you dont mind lagging til 5000rpm

5000 is a bit on the high side. Hell, a GT42R would spool around 5,000.

My friend has a 60-1 on his SRT-4....8.1:1 compression and he reaches full boost at 4000. As soon as he gets rid of the shitty stock exhaust and gets a 3" turboback he'll have full boost at 3500-3600. Yes, thats on a 2.4 liter but its lower compression so it should be about the same.

if you dont lower the compression on the zetec you wont use that turbo to its potential
