    I use to have one a few years back personally I wouldn't do it.
    There's no way you will get that power down and the build quality ain't nowhere near as good as the s3!
    And the dash is ugly. Keep the s3 mate

    Difficult to say without knowing the spec/mileage/condition of both cars.

    I worked at a ford main dealer as a mechanic for 7 years and I will say the first generation focus is a fantastic car, and VERY reliable although I have no experience of one running a supercharger.

    I think what a few members are saying is, 305bhp@Flywheel is a bit optimistic, since the standard turbo can't produce that much power in the first place, even max'd out!

    I have to agree with dani and JoJo, you seem to have basic stage one mods, unless there's more mods I don't think your at 305 brake dude.
