Since I missed the boat on the Powerworks for my SVT I'd like to hear from anyone about their experiences with the Xios turbo. Looks like a pretty good rig. Let me hear from all of you please.[gunfire]
I was almost thinking about this, if and when I go SVT.... but a price of $4K just seems high (I mean yeah, it's the whole kit) but a DIY kit would probably end up being cheaper, because you'd probably use cheaper materials as well.... lol
I have the Xios SVT kit custom fitted to a regular Zetec. It is converted to blow-through and has custom intercooler piping and a 2.5" to 3" downpipe. The only other thing I would change is the internal wastegate. It doesn't seem to hold well over 15psi but hopefully a good EBC would cure that problem. Here's my build thread if you feel like reading http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=141324
Andreas is out of the country alot so just leave a message on their answering machine and they should get back to you within a reasonable time frame. The SPA kit seems to be a nice kit also though. However, IIRC, it also has some issues.
