Ford Performance squeezes 275 bhp from Focus ST

Ford Performance has developed an upgrade package tailored to the Focus ST facelift. It costs $1,900 in United States and will not avoid the car’s 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty, so you will be able to benefit from the output hike while keeping the warranty provided by Ford. The kit lifts output of the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine by 23 bhp (17 kW) and 26 lb-ft (35 Nm) of torque to a grand total of 275 bhp (205 kW) and a maximum torque of 296 lb-ft (400 Nm). It should be mentioned these new output numbers are applicable when the hot hatchback is running on 93-octane fuel.

The kit is available across United States and encompasses a remapped engine ECU which has been tweaked to deliver a more aggressive engine mapping and a faster throttle response without affecting durability. There’s also a mountune induction kit, high-flow intercooler and an mTune handset together with all the other necessary hardware while optionally available is a mountune air filter end cap which is added to the high-flow air filter to control the sound as well as provide air filter protection in difficult weather conditions.
