Does anybody know where to buy a Turbo for a 2 litre Ford Focus? Any good Bodykitts would be a help as well!

ask the folks at www.focusowners.com
i know its possible to supercharge the 1.8 (dunno about the 2.0) cos one of the feature cars has been done. im sure you could easily get a turbo for the 2.0 cos they use it for rallying dont they (and in the RS)

Its not as easy as simply bolting a Turbo onto your engine.............

Turbocharged Engines have different pistons fitted (Low Compression) to allow for more intake charge to be forced into the combustion chambers, Also they have different camshafts to allow for the different Cam Timing that is required on a Turbocharged engine.

You can bolt on a Turbo unit, however your engine would NOT perform the same as a factory produced 2.0 Litre Turbo car would.

Nirtous Oxide would be a good engine performance up-grade, however it is quite expensive eek

Water injection is allot cheaper to run (Water is Free) to gain performance from your engine, I am currently studying water injection to see if it worth fitting it to my Scooby <img border="0" alt="[smokin]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions036.gif" />

Hope this info helps ????

your lookin at about 3 4k to turbo you car if you just stick a turbo on you can only get 5 ish psi of boost so it aint worth it if you stil want to you might be able to yous a spacer or two on the head to get more boost if not get new low comp pistons good luck if you do i was thinkin of a turbo for my 2L escort but i gave up an got a gto that has twin turbos
