Ford Focus ST buyers in the UK now have the option of more adrenalin from a new performance upgrade from engine tuners Mountune.
Mountune’s kit increases the power output of the Ford Focus ST’s 2.0 EcoBoost engine from 250 to 275PS and, when fitted by a Ford dealer, does not affect the vehicle warranty.
The Mountune upgrade kit comprises a large capacity alloy intercooler, low-loss cast crossover duct with silicone hose, high-flow dual-entry air filter and specially developed performance-map calibration. Its fitment not only produces a 10 per cent increase in maximum power output at 5,500rpm, but also an improvement in torque from 345Nm to 400Nm at 2,750rpm.
“The 2015 Focus ST 275PS upgrade is the latest addition to a wide range of Ford Performance parts and accessories from Ford dealers,” said Kevin Griffin, Ford of Britain sales director. “It enables Focus ST owners to experience even more impressive performance, while offering the reassurance that the upgrade will not affect warranties.”
Mountune’s MP275 upgrade kit costs £1,195 including VAT plus fitting, which takes two hours.
The Ford Focus ST 5-door with 2.0 EcoBoost engine at £22,495 in ST-1 specification includes 18-inch alloy wheels, ST body styling, Recaro sports front seats with DAB radio and Ford SYNC including Bluetooth and voice control.
