can anyone lend a helping hand on finding a cheap way to find a turbocharging kit?
You are full of crap. 750 for the manifold 250 for the down pipe 750 for the turbo 379 for a programmer plus the cost of a custom tune thats already well over 2k and you still have the mafia wastegate chagepipes and intercooler plus lines fittings clamps and couplers. That crap will nickel and dime you to death. Just because you bought the stuff along time ago doesnt mean it was free.I turbo'd My focus for right about 2k. Topspeed Manifold and down pipe, Toms comp turbo, CxRacing intercooler+piping, pos blow off valve, Turbonetics wastegate (used), Mafia (used), BAP (used). Car made 364 wheel on Toms dyno. You could turn down the boost and it would be perfectly safe for a stock block.
