My name is Ken, and I am in the process of purchasing a 2006 ZX5. I work at a Ford dealership, and I have ordered the big boost kit from Ford Racing/Jackson Racing. Looks like it will make a major improvement. Has anyone here ever installed one of these? What kind of quarter mile time can I expect? Pro's, con's, any input at all would be great.

Thought Focus Sport had a Turbo out for the '06's? Regardless of street legality.

I just looked in the Ford Racing catalogue, and it doesn't specify a year. Does anybody know what performance stuff I can get for a 2006?

looks like Focus Sport offers some nice turbo charging/intercooling packages. Again, it doesn't specify what year the application is for, however it does say new. Here's to hoping. I have emailed them, I will keep you guys posted.

I went to www.hi-boost.com looking for a turbo setup, but I could only find Porsche stuff. I'm not an expert at navigating the internet yet, more info would be great. I'm almost thinking of buying a 2004 instead. At least there is some good bolt on stuff. I wish Ford Racing would come out with something for the 2006, as I work at a Ford dealership and get a great deal on parts.

Just be patient. Slowly but surely parts are making their way to the light of day on '05+ Foci. Hell, by the time I can actually afford the FS turbo, it may be CARB legal (highly doubtful). But they did just release the lowering springs and an assortment of other parts for the '06's recently. Have faith. "If you build it, he will come." Oh, wait, wtf.

Could you elaborate why because your opinion is highly regarded here and we need to know your reasoning behind selecting hi-boost over FS.

Wow, until I realized who you were responding to, I thought you were trying to come off as sarcastic. [:D]
