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

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.
