Big turbo

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried to go to a bigger turbo on a 2.0? Had a focus ST, wondering if a bigger turbo for one would fit the edge? (With supporting tune and better IC obviously)

Both snmjim and I have custom turbo mods on our cars. I bought some used turbos for my car at http://car-part.com and had them upgraded at Comp Turbos in California https://www.compturbotechnology.com. By doing this they were a direct bolt in swap. Stock has a six blade cast and the mod has a 11 blade CNC you can see how it is hogged out to the max . Not sure but as I remember the stock turbos are 57mm and the mod turbos are 61mm. Here are the before and after photos. Not sure this will work but check this out https://www.steeda.com/atp-focus-st-gt2860rs-bolt-on-turbo-upgrade-13-14-st-987-atp-foc-010 .Good luck.

I have upgraded the IC and have a tune in my car, it has run 12.9 on 91 octane. The only problem with upgrading turbos is finding a tuner who will work with you to get the most out of them.

Keep in mind that Xtra is a sport with a 2.7L V6 twin turbo & the OP is a 2.0 Ecoboost

The Focus ST turbo is a single scroll K03.  I am not sure what turbo is on the Edge 2.0 but I believe it is a twin scroll unit.  So the aftermarket  ones for the Focus would not bolt right on.

Jgrasham your best bet might be to have a turbo custom made . Here is a link to several used turbos that will work for rebuilding / upgrading at Comp Turbo or other reputable turbo shop.  You should be able to get a good rebuildable turbo for around $150 to $250. Just fill out the search form at the link.  Call first and check that the turbo you pick is complete and has all the parts and clamps before ordering. That way it will be an easy bolt on swap. This is where and how I did mine.   http://car-part.com

 

 I do not think Jgrasham has a 2860 Focus ... My bad  :doh:*** 

***The link I gave to the Focus 2L EB turbo gave these stats:    

FITMENT & FEATURES

Manufacturer:

Check out BNR racing they, have a good amount of plug and play turbos available and i have bought and installed 25+ of his turbos and never a problem and they ALWAYS out perform the competition.

 

Check him out on facenook (where he has all of his most updated product), or his website http://bnrsupercars.com/

Check for CHRA kits for the 2.0 Ecoboost turbo.  If available (eBay usually, but on Ford enthusiast sites also), that is a good option.  A rebuild that includes better seals is the best option, but $$$.
