I have not seen nor heard of anyone with a working SC SPI. There are a number of SPI-Ts, (I actually got to drive Tin_maddog's at the G2G this past Sunday, whee!) It would be such a pain in the ass to SC and if you're gonna go through that, you might as well get better gains for less $ and effort with the Turbo. There's 5 or 6 guys on here with turbo SPIs, more on FJ too. If you are lucky, JeffEscort will pop in here and say a few words.

The general consensus seems to be since SC and Turbo would both be custom fitted, the Turbo is the way to go.

x2.
Superchargers are cool and all, I'll take a blower over N/A. But the fact is, turbo's just make more hp, way more tq and a fat power band that is'nt peaky like superchargers.

There was a supercharged SPI focus a few year's back, but I dont think we ever say a dyno sheet or 1/4 slip.

There is no turbo for the SPI, all the ones here have been built from parts from other cars. You've got a long research process ahead of you

you can build up a nice turbo kit from the rs2000 escort which also uses the spi motor as iam doing with ukdm, eudm and cosworth parts(plus some bdr and custom goodies)

actually, alot of the research has been and/or is being done. so really all you have to do is piggy back off the knowledge of the SPI turbo forefathers....

still not as simply as going to Turbo Tom and saying, here turbo my focus, but it is not the impossibility it used to be.
