Moun­tune boosts ST

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Ford’s hot Fo­cus ST is get­ting more punch with a per­for­mance up­grade from en­gine spe­cial­ists Moun­tune.

The Moun­tune treat­ment hikes power from the ST’s 2.0-litre EcoBoost en­gine from 250 to 275ps and shaves more than half a sec­ond off its 0 to 60mph ac­cel­er­a­tion time at 5.9 sec­onds.

The 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 per­for­mancemap cal­i­bra­tion.

Its 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 adding ex­tra bite to mid-range ac­cel­er­a­tion.

The ST costs from £22,495 and the Moun­tune kit adds £1,195 to the price.
