Seriously though the way you phrase the question it seems like you have not even tried looking through the wealth of information on this site. Injectors, tune, wideband, different temp range plugs, intercooler & pipes, oil feed and drain lines, water lines if its a ball bearing turbo. Its not as simple as just throwing it on and you're done unless you buy a full off the shelf kit complete with tune, which is still going to require a decent amount of labor. If you are planing on high boost and high power levels also include pistons, rods, and other internal work so you dont fry your engine. As far as the intake thing, I ran 20 - 25 psi through a stock plastic zetec intake manifold and its still in one piece.
ya as do I. everything that megax36 is correct the only thing you would need to change is the drive axles i believe they are good for lower end of 200hp depending what all's been done, might be a little off been a while since i read that. you can come close to $1500 if you know the right ppl and have the tools. but like all great things, you get what you pay for.Not very realistic at all, even a DIY turbo kit is going to cost more than $1500. The FSWerks complete stage 2 kit is probably the best turbo kit for the Duratec foci, with the top speed kit coming in a close second. FSWerks also recently released a kit for the old Zetec.
The stock duratec motor is good for up to around 250hp, and the manual tranny I have heard can handle up to 450hp with an upgraded clutch and flywheel. If you have an ATX you will be limited to 220hp unless you upgrade to a lentech, which cost thousands by itself.
I agree with bennyfocus, you guys really should do a search, as there is a wealth of info on this subject.
it's a gif. [facepalm][rofl]lol the jpeg is so awesome[thumb]
the axles are good actually... go do some more research this isnt a honda.ya as do I. everything that megax36 is correct the only thing you would need to change is the drive axles i believe they are good for lower end of 200hp depending what all's been done, might be a little off been a while since i read that. you can come close to $1500 if you know the right ppl and have the tools. but like all great things, you get what you pay for.
That 1500 will get you a header/2.5 exhaust/intake & a tune![wrenchin]I would be interested in getting a smaller turbo put on my stock Focus sedan. I plan on adding a performance header, exhaust, and intake, so putting a smaller turbo with that would be pretty sweet. But I would like to know how much additional money I would have to dump into the car in order to make the turbo work (without getting crazy with all the little odds and ends). But I don't want to kill my car, so I've got to do it right. But I'm only looking to spend like 1.5K max on everything, so... I don't know how realistic my goals are.
NO! There are many people running the stock plastic intake manifold with boost and having no issues , I would say your safe with boost to about 26-30psi on the stock plastic intakei have a stock 2.0 dtech. it has a plastic intake manifold and was wondering if i put a turbo in it, will it blow my intake manifold? are there any mods i need to do in prep for a turbo?
