Re: turbo for focus

Supercharge it, spend half the price and get alot more torque. I came very close to doing this before buying my RS2000 instead, CAPA have a few kits, the Jackson Racing one and the Vortech with water injection.

Re: turbo for focus

I was planning to supercharge the Fiesta but the NSW P plater restriction have put a stop to that.

Atleast it gives me time to do some mods that can carry over to a supercharger and everything else eg ICE, body, rims
