£500

“For a little bit more than £500 you can skip straight past the entry-level packages and into the CP2 software. The software costs £360 but also requires a Stage 1 intercoole­r upgrade at £250. This takes us a little over budget, but the 320bhp-plus the CP2 delivers is well worth the extra £100.”

“Now we can build on the foundation­s of the CP2 package we laid down with our first £500. The next £1000 would see us suggest a Mongoose cat-back exhaust (£685) and a closed air intake system (£290), or a K&N panel filter (£56). If the latter, that leaves budget to spend on sorting the chassis with some Powerflex front bushes (which probably need changing anyway) and one of our CP quickshift kits too.”

£5000

“For this we’d be looking at our CP340 Software (£420), CP actuator (£150), a block mod kit (£360), RS injectors (£300), Stage 1 intercoole­r (£250), Mongoose 3in downpipe (£280), Mongoose 3in sports cat (£600) and Mongoose cat-back (£685). This will give a very useable spread of power and torque, and to make the most of it we’d spend the remaining budget on Powerflex front bushes (£85), CP quickshift (£60), Eibach springs (£220), Koni dampers (£800), Whiteline rear anti-roll bar (£180), Ferodo DS2500 brake pads (£160) and CP torque mount (£120). That would make a formidable fast Ford by any standard.”
