And the winner of the Focus ST Shirt is....

Dec 16, 2013 - 9:17 AM - by STdan

Congrats Ankah! You've been selected by random.org as the winner of the FocusST.org Shirt giveaway! Here's the reason why Ankah became an ST owner:

i my first new car was a 2000 Focus ZX3 with 10 miles on odometer, over 200K miles and 14 years later I wanted a new focus because of the reliability of my ZX3 and it was about time to get a new vehicle. I liked the Older SVT Foci, and saw there was an ST version of the Focus Hatchback. so there was no question in regards to getting a Focus ST.

So you didn't win? Well stay tune! We have another giveaway going live this afternoon!

Mountune will upgrade your Focus ST, Fiesta ST (More info)

Ford tuner turns up the heat on already hot hatches

By: Jay Ramey on 12/10/2013

U.K.-based Ford tuner Mountune set up shop in the U.S. just a couple months ago and is already offering upgrades to the Ford Focus ST and the Ford Fiesta ST. Mountune is Ford's official partner in Europe, and their experience goes back 30 years
Mountune comes from a slightly different branch of Ford tuning than North American buyers are used to -- their specialty has been tuning Ford's smaller cars in Europe rather than its muscle cars, and they've worked on everything from Escorts to Focuses (though perhaps not the Escorts and Focuses we're used to). But the company now offers upgrades for U.S.-market Focus and Fiesta models.

For the 2013 and 2014 Ford Focus ST models, Mountune offers a low-restriction intake with an exclusive K&N air filter, along with a Samco silicone coupling hose, a high-flow direct-injector upgrade set, an uprated air-recirculation valve and revised engine calibration. Mountune also offers a performance intercooler; it's larger than the stock unit and is ready for cars that see the track quite a bit. Mountune also offers a high-performance silicone-boost hose kit for the Focus ST, as well as a silicone ancillary coolant kit by SamcoSport. The intercooler and the low-restriction intake are offered in silver or black, and the whole host of underhood upgrades for the Focus ST can be purchased either piecemeal or as an entire kit for $2,100 in either color.

Mountune also offers 18-inch OZ Racing/Mountune Formula HLT wheels for the Focus ST in a choice of silver, black or white. The company also offers sport spring kits for the Focus ST, developed along with Eibach. Mountune hasn't gone all out when it comes to the springs, mindful of the state of real-world roads on which the cars will be driving. So their springs have increased the stiffness by about 15 percent while also giving the Focus ST a slightly lower stance, with the car dropping 1 inch in the front and 1.4 inches in the rear.

When it comes to stylistic upgrades, Mountune offers a... [Read More]

Wolf Racing Ford Focus ST 370 Estate at Essen 2013

I wanted to post this for the Estate/Wagon people.

by Mihnea Radu
29th November 2013

If you though the Ford Focus ST Estate had too much power for a family car, think again! German tuner Wolf Racing developed a three-stage kit to boost the hot-hatchís performance and it's also been made available on the wagon, which made its debut at the Essen Motor Show 2013.

The first stage leaves the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine alone but messes up with the ECU and ads a new air filter. Power jumps from 250 HP (184 kW) and 265 lb-ft (360 Nm) to 285 HP (209 kW) and 326 lb-ft (440 Nm). Stage two adds a bigger turbo to the previous setup, increasing total power to 300 HP (220 kW) and 333 lb-ft (450 Nm).

But the car you see right here is full werewolf, the most powerful FWD estate around! The engine will squeeze out 370 HP (272 kW) and 409 lb-ft (554 Nm) for you to shred those front tires.

Among other changes there is a high-performance brake system, new side skirts, headlight covers, rear skirt attachment, roof spoiler lip and a coil-over suspension which lowers the car by 50mm.

Ford Focus ST Mountune is quite possibly the best hot car Ford has ever made

Motors correspondent Richard Hammond: Thereís the sexy Ford GT of course, but we mean hot family car thatís both affordable and practical

The current Ford Focus ST is quite possibly the best hot car that Ford has ever made.

Well, thereís the sexy Ford GT of course, but we mean hot family car thatís both affordable and practical.

And the Focus ST is very affordable with prices starting at £21,995. And practical because for the first time thereís an estate version.

But youíve heard all this already, whatís new on the block is a Mountune version of the Focus.

A few weeks ago we tested a Fiesta ST with the Mountune effect and what a *brilliant car it is.

If youíve forgotten, *Mountune is an Essex-based tuning firm thatís been playing around with Ford engines for decades, including preparing them for racing. Ford obviously trusts the company because itíll honor the factory warranty if your Focus ST wears the little yellow Mountune badge on its bottom.

The Mountune kit for the Focus is similar to the conversion that it offers for the Fiesta: for your £1,275 you get a new bigger *intercooler (thatís the radiator that cools down the air that goes to the turbocharger: the cooler the air the denser it is and the more power the engine will make), a high flow air filter and a new alloy housing for it. Oh, and an ECU remap.

With this box of bits comes an extra 24bhp, bringing the Fordís horsepower up from the standard 247bhp to 271bhp.

Worth it? Well it makes the car a bit more special because it becomes a Mountune Focus ST with the badge to prove it. But the real benefit is the extra mid-range power.

The standard Focus ST isnít short of poke but as the engine revs to around 4,000rpm you can feel the power tail off a bit.

In this car that doesnít happen and the rush of acceleration is constant. The suspension can just about handle this.

The ST Mountuneís front wheels wriggle at the edge of annoying torque steer but never actually go their own way.

The Mountune... [Read More]
