4 Spooled vs V6 spooled x2

Turbo in a 4 or v6 conversion then add turbo, maybe 2?

Although the contrast is pretty decent I am hoping to get some insight from people who have done it before.

My only concerns with going the conversion are:
a) the engineer’s certificate
b) finding a V6 to fit a Focus


I’m buying a t-kit in about 3-4 weeks for my 4. I’d love a 6 but I to be convinced otherwise. Any help from people who have been there?

Talk to the guys at APS (94553222) about the eng. cert. Ask for Paul, he is a member of the forums. They are located in Heidelberg Heights. Thats the only question I can answer, cause most of your post makes no sense at all!

Re: 4 Spooled vs V6 spooled x2

I would have to agree with Low Na its a bit cryptic.

I assume you mean a comparison of a V6 turbo to 4 turbo in a FWD focus??

If thats the case I would leave it with the std engine, doing an uncommon engine swap in a FWD is fraught with danger. Handling will become worse, make too much torque and you will constantly eat half-shafts and CVs. I would believe its harder to do a FWD conversion right as in not get nasty vibrations etc.

Engineers certificate is not hard if the works done right. I saw a Triumph TR7 with a Nissan 4.4L infinity V8, 5 speed auto (apparently the stock infinity one), full cage and fully floating axle assembly. This car got compliancing, its power to weight would have been insane.
