    I would worry about buying the right turbo instead of worrying about 10-20$, if that amount will change your purchase choice, well maybe you shouldn't be buying performance parts:-)

    Why not? If the unit is a proven one and is cost effective, I don't see a draw back to it. Seems like 4-5 people are making these hybrid turbos and I'm wondering how much and if at all anything really creates a noticeable difference.

    And I can't see a part shipped from the uk be anywhere in the 10-20 dollar range higher

    I hear ya, maybe ask the guy who's selling his c39 after a couple weeks of ownership and is willing to take a big hit on $$$ maybe he knows something about the c39 that we don't?

    That has to mean something but everyone's different:-)

    There seems to be a lot of unnecessary bs and useless talk in this thread. Hence my previous comment about a dyno graph thread.

    This should be controlled by moderators and certain sections deleted. I've been on car forums since the light of them and this never resolves anything.

    20+ page thread with about 3/4 of useless reading.

    Why do pumaspeed x37 and x47 threads get stickied on the forum? Are they a paying vendor? Or do the admins just like those turbos the best? Honest question.

    Believe it or not we've (Admins / Mods) have had to step in and tell the same few members to remain on topic more times than I'd like to count now....And I know its probably hard to believe but this thread in particular has also been cleaned a number of times over the past few months with off topic and attacking posts removed...And even after all these requests to remain on topic and subsequent thread cleaning it appears that its still the same few members on this forum that repeatedly find the need to go off topic or denigrate other competitors / vendors rather than engage in constructive and informative comparisons and discussions...



    This is the last time I mention this and if I have to step in once again we'll just close this thread and begin to issue infractions to repeat offenders ...And I assure you we don't enjoy doing this, but this behavior has gone on long enough...

    So please for lets stay on topic....

My original plan was to buy an RS, I would have been in for about another 20k right off the bat and then I would have likely spent another 10k or more on modifications anyway.

    I've never understood the whole "well, for (insert dollar amount) more you could have had a (insert more expensive vehicle that the speaker prefers)". Like if I purchased a different car I would just leave it alone, yeah.... that's gonna happen.

    You put 10k into a FiST and it will take you far, I put 10K into my FoST I get a sub performing Focus at an RS price. I mean look at the thread we are in, talking about Hybrid and small turbos pushing 250-300WHP on pump in a car that weighs around 2700, why wouldn't you be ok with putting money into this platform??? Some vehicles are just an amazing starting point, some you really do scratch your head at but the FiST is deff not one of them.
