Turbo kits??

Hi all,

Just wondering which turbo companies will most likely be making a bolt-on turbo kit for the new Focus RS when it comes out. I know its probably to early to say but in the past which companies have manufactured turbos for the Focus?

Thankyou

This guy on youtube has a 2015 4 cylinder turbo mustang, hes upgraded his turbos, or at least the software. I think this is a good place to start still being this far out from sale date...

Those rods are crazy, looks like they'll take a good beating.
I bet there will even be shops and/or tuning companies that will offer full packages including that.

What sort of increase in power are you looking for with the RS?

We have been making after market turbo for turbo charged Subarus for years (WRX/STI/Legacy GT). We are actually already working on stock location Focus RS turbos. The idea being that you can buy all of your bolt ons and later simply replace the stock turbo. It cost more in tooling, but is cheaper and easier to install for the end customer.

We recently completed full production batches on the 2015 WRX's new FA20F DIT stock location turbo. it has a new low mount twin scroll turbo. It took us a year to get the tooling made because the turbine housing was the most complicated one our foundry had ever cast. It remains to be seen how complicated the RS' turbine housing will be to make, but it could be 6-12 months before we have production aftermarket turbos available.

In the mean time, we will probably work on other bolt ons like exhausts, intakes, intercooler, etc. for the Focus RS platform.

I think if I was going for an upgrade and living in the UK, I would talk with Cosworth first. They did the upgrade work for Ford on the Mastang engine to produce the extra power for the RS engine.
