You can expect to pay about $200-250 for one, and for me, I gained a little bit easier starting from a stop. My car doesn't studder as it once did and achieves wide open throttle VERY quickly.

TB was well worth the money. car felt like a whole new monster after i put it on! got mine from walter marcy. but from what i understand, the TB that marcy and newedge sell are the same thing, just different vendor. i paid marcy for mine, but it was drop-shipped from newedge.

What would I be getting from buying the cosworth, just the name. I planed on ordering a SCT and a TB from marcy. But I read this post somewhere on another focus forum and it was talking about how ford wont own up to warranty if you have aftermarket parts and I just convinced my dad to letting me buy headers, intake manifold, tb, and a tune....So I might be laying off the modds for the next 4 years (I really hate that extended plan) We werent originally goin to get it and the damn guy at ford said they had a special deal so my dad was like why not. I should have just gotten the ranger, lol. God I hate ford they are a bunch of idiots, that never admit that they are wronge. Went to get tires rotated and balanced and they said I had to replace some a tire. I was like no way I was just over there 2 weeks ago. Well what ended up happening is when they replaced 2 of my older tireds 2 weeks ago They took off 1 good tire and 1 bad tire. So that left me with 2brand new tires, 1 good, 1bad. When i went back two weeks later they would not admit that they screwed up. They are a bunch of idiots! Bah, im sorry, its like 4 in the morning and I been researching about warranties and stuff and just overall pissed that I have been saving up for the past 5 years to modify my car. It just kills me that I have the money to put a turbo and to get that new transmission but I cant. I have been saving up to mod my car forever now. Now the money just sitting in my bank account. It really kills me. Bah, Im going to bed :-(. Should have just gotten the damn Turbo Passat for my graduation present but I have a special attachment to my Focus :-(.

Well, I could be wrong, but there is a law, atleast in Illinois that I know of that states, "the consumer CAN modify their vehicle at no fear of loss of warranty UNLESS the modification is found to be the cause of failure or causes another part to fail." Someone on here I believe said that any powertrain alterations void warranty. Best bet, call your dealer/warranty service company and ask.

and I believe the website I found that on was www.enjoythedrive.com

I know. I found it and made a post solely covering that. Hoping the admin would sticky it.
