Some of you know this as Pappy's car, Vader. I bought it over a year ago and made a few changes through the year. The most recent winter project was going from the Jackson supercharger to a turbo system. I think this will complete my mods for a while.

The s/c was nice, but the turbo really hauls, plus it is much quieter then before.

I know this is a sore spot with some people but I went with Turbo Tom for remote tuning since the kit was a diy focus power kit. Tom was very easy to work with and did a great job, the car runs great. I bought the turbo kit used with 3000 miles on it so its like new. I am running 10lbs of boost with a safe tune and it has all the power I need. I would guess that torque is around 220. I love this car, even more now.

Not sure I'd say Tom is a sore spot, he's just a douche on the internet. :lol:

Glad to see this car is still running on it's 3rd FI setup.

I believe he sold it, it won't fit an SVT anyways.

Car is running like a champ, just installed fswerks stealth exhaust. It has a nice sound and quiet at cruising speed. Not much left to do on the car. I do think I will install some sound material like dynamat this winter to give it a nice solid sound inside. I do dream once in a while about buying a boss mustang, not sure if I would sell the focus if I do that.
