    Yes, I said it...I didn't realize it at the time, but this beastie will be way more fun with more boost...after installing all the essential mod parts, and possibly getting some forged internals, ...omg...money is leaving the wallet..life is short...but I want to roast some peeps..maybe not off the line...but at speed...you are picking up what I am throwing down?..ha ha ha

    Dont think youll need to touch the internals. Just a bigger turbo at the same boost will flow more air.

    Im pretty much there too. Just waiting for more direct bolt on options

    Fuel supply is always going to be the limiting factor on these Direct Injection cars. If you want big power we are just going to have to wait and see what high pressure fuel pumps become available. As DI becomes more and more prevalent we should see some great options become available. By the time my warranty runs out I'm hoping for some enticing aftermarket alternatives.

    People have alteady broken 300WHP with the stock fuel supply & internals. So unless youre building some crazy high HP drag car, all that is required is the bolt ons , the appropriate turbo and correct tune

    You're correct....I can't remember if it was the Garret or ATP website, but forged internals we're not required until a jumbo turbo upgrade..

    FYI, The rods are already forged.

    I know the fuel supply on the 2.0 EcoBoost (Focus ST) maxed out at 340-350whp, my guess is the 1.6 should max out a bit sooner. If someone already has a 300+whp Fiesta it's news to me.

    Wow I hadn't seen that one yet, it must have just gone up recently on the ATP page. I wish they showed boost levels and commented on fueling. "400+hp capable" and "greater horsepower potential available" doesn't really tell me anything. In any case, it looks quite promising.

    It's been up for at least a month. Stock fuel system but yes, would be nice to see what boost level and HPFP pressure and IDC's and even fuel used.

    The GTX2860R is a 42 lb/min turbo so it has the potential of 400hp

    I heard from ATP...I asked about a bolt on that does not require forged internals...and btw if a big enough bolt on turbo is installed, yes our rods are sinter forged, other internal components need to be replaced with forged parts for larger hp applications....sooo, I don't want to open the engine and mess with any internals...so from what I gathered, the GT2554R is the way to go...the real question is, will the car be damaged with the this application before a new tune can be installed?...worried about running too lean with increased air flow...can a tune be written before the turbo installation, or do I have to data log? Or will the ECU deal with it? Chime in please...cheers!

    You *MUST* get a proper tune with an upgraded turbo.

    Understood...but did you read my post? If I get the bolt on upgrade, am I going to hurt my engine in the mean time before a tune?

    If you stay out of boost, it should be fine.

    It looks like you have to rev up to 4200 to get the same torque that a Cobb Stage III gets at 2700.

    Yea don't worry about the 60 to 100 hp more.
