Ford pushes up 2-litre power, torque
In the US, Ford Focus ST customers can now obtain an upgrade kit that increases power and torque from the 2-litre gasoline engine.
When the parts installation and tuning is performed by an authorized Ford Performance technician, Focus ST retains its factory warranty – a benefit for any customer looking to seek the most out of the ownership experience.
The heart of the system is a performance ECU calibrated to deliver a more aggressive engine mapping program, including a quicker throttle response, without compromising durability. Power spikes from 252 bhp to 275 bhp. Torque output is 296lbft.
Unlike many aftermarket kits that compromise reliability and driveability on the street while also hampering emissions, the mountune system keeps the Focus ST street-legal in all 50 US states.
