well to find out your chip number you must first remove your glove box by opening it and squezing both sides and pull. you will have a number for instance my is pbm1 it is 3 letters and 1 number ex. (lmx3)? something like that. usually when you get a turbo upgrade they come with ecu chips a.k.a racing chips for instance turbo tom of focus-power.com uses chipguy racing chips i believe.

You might also find the ECU sticker inside the door jam on the passenger side.
Open the passenger side door.
Look around the inside by the door hinges.
Look for a 1inch by 1inch sticker with 3 letters and a number like LUY2.
As far as programming for turbo, usually the guy who sells the turbo kit can help you with that.
If not, you will need a tuner shop guy who knows how to tune turbo's tune the chip/ecu.

Good luck.

Thanks guys,you help me a lot.
Now,I would like to know how much does it cost?(The Chip)
I am asking for you cause in Brazil the chips for Fords are too expensive,it costs U$ 600.
I am opening a car center and I would like to work especially with Ford,if someone could give me a name of book or site about Ford's eletronic injection,chips,etc...I will be glad.
See ya and a happy new year for everyone.

Leonel, deal with 1turbofocus, he knows more about turbocharging and the focus than most out there.

HRW good advice also.
