Jhatch3 and myself did the install over a weekend. Took us probably close to 30 hours to install it, then took another two weeks to get the goddamned thing running properly. Reason it took us so long is because everything that possibly could've gone wrong, did go wrong for us.

That sounds like my life. Hopefully I'll have better luck. I plan on taking my time and going slow. I've installed 1 JR supercharger and 2 greddy and 2 Fly'n miata turbo kits on miata's. So I'm not new to this. Just new to the Focus.

As DrkKnight614 stated Powerworks sells a kit for auto trannys. I'm sure it would be a blast with an auto. I had a 95 240sx auto with an sr20det engine swap with auto tranny it in. I ordered the engine and tranny combo from Japan. It was fun and at 13psi with fmic it would smoke the 18's I had on it.

Is PW closing out their line for the regular zetec? On their website it says they are having "a closeout sale, once they're gone, they're gone!"

No, they're just coming out with a Gen II, so they're trying to rid themselves of their remaining 5-Spd and ATX Zetec stock.

Are you sure about the the Gen II? I heard the PW SC kits didn't sell very well. Not liked PW had expected. They where overpriced IMOP. (The $3k price is more reasonable.) I was hearing a rumor PW wasn't going to make anymore. But this could just be the Gen I kit. If PW wasn't selling the Gen I kits and making any money. Why would develop a new Kit? Unless it's for the Duratec engine.

No ... not for the Duratech.

The Gen II castings fits the Zetec 5spd/atx and SVT with kit content differences. The Gen I castings wouldn't physically fit the SVT (Getrag).
