It adds more than a few horses but it seems that you dont even have a clue on how things even works. Honesly I would not tackle this. More than likely unless you are lucky as Jeffescortlx you will not be able to do the turbo for around $300. You would have to pay someone to fab the exhaust piping and someone to install it. Do some research on it first. I dont mean to sound like a smart ass but I just dont want you to think that it is something that is a simple bolt on.

The worst thing that you can do is put a turbo badge on your car and someone tries to race you and you get stompped then what. Bad enough people under estimat the escort dont add insult to injury

You would be surprised how many people that tries to race me as soon as they here the blow off valve. It is something unexpected so there for they think they can win against the grocery getter.
