Support for Fallen Fellow ST Enthusiast

Jan 17, 2016 - 3:01 PM - by ibom
Hello all,

My name is Chris and I am an admin for the California ST Facebook group. I am here to ask for your support for a fellow ST enthusiast Brandon Tabita.

Unfortunately on the morning of January 15th, it is believed that Brandon fell asleep at the wheel after having worked a mid shift. He rear ended a school bus that thankfully had no children in it. Brandons car went under the rear of the bus and his car sustained unbelievable damage. Brandon also received irreparable trauma to his head and brain. He had to be cut from the car using the jaws of life which took over an hour to get him out. Once out, he was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The staff at the hospital was outstanding and have done all that they could, but informed his family and friends around 4pm on 16 January that there was nothing further they could do as Brandon is 100% brain dead. His family has been absolutely devastated at the loss of their son. They will be going to the hospital again today on 17 January to make their decision on whether to remove him from life support or not. With a decision like that, money should not be something they have to think or worry about. There will be high medical cost and impending funeral cost.

Thank you

Ford recalls 9,900 vehicles across two campaigns

Includes The Focus ST, Escape, Explorer, Taurus, And More

Ford is recalling a total of 9,885 vehicles in two campaigns.

The Basics: In one recall, Ford will recall 9,017 examples of the 2013 Escape with build dates from January 11, 2012, to April 1, 2013, and the 2013-2014 Focus ST produced between May 3, 2012, and October 14, 2013.

The Problem: Splices in the engine wiring harness might not have enough compression, and this can cause the manifold absolute pressure sensor to send incorrect signals to the powertrain control module. This issue could cause the engine to stall.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If You Own One: The repair campaign will begin on January 4, 2016.

More Information: Ford recalled the 2013 Escape and Focus ST in August 2014 for the same problem, and this is an expansion of that campaign, according to company spokesperson John Cangany to Autoblog.

The Basics: In the smaller of the two campaigns, Ford will recall 868 examples of the 2013 Explorer, Explorer Police Utility, Taurus, Taurus Police Interceptor, Flex, Lincoln MKS, and MKT.

The Problem: The fuel delivery module can crack, which would cause a fuel leak.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.

If You Own One: Owners should receive notice soon because NHTSA's report says the recall begins in December.

More Information: According to Cangany, this recall is an expansion of a campaign from 2013 for these vehicles.

2015 Ford Focus ST With Ford Performance Upgrades First Test Motortrend Review

Money Can Fix Your (Focus ST) Problems

The Ford Focus ST has three problems: torque steer, exhaust note, and power. Now, the Focus ST is a heck of a vehicle, but itís missing a little extra something. Thatís where Mountune comes in. Wait, who? You might be wondering who Mountune is, but if youíre a Focus performance aficionado, youíre already familiar with their work.

The short version is that Mountune makes the magic happen for the big names racing four-cylinder Fords. The company started in the 1980s prepping Cosworth engines for motorsports and in later years branched out to offer a line of parts that donít void the Ford factory warranty. The Ford-approved modifications are also smog-legal in all 50 states. This really matters if you reside in one of the more tuning-averse states.

Mountuneís work on the 2015 Ford Focus ST yielded a full complement of modifications that fall roughly into two categories: performance enhancements and appearance enhancements. The performance mods are really the problem solvers of the bunch; the appearance mods solve a different set of problems in a more subjective field. The whole shebang goes for $5,102, though it must be installed by the dealer (Ford or Lincoln), Mountune USA, or an ASE-certified tech to comply with your new vehicle warranty.

Under the Hood

The torque steer and power problems are both solved under the hood, where $1,900 gets you the Mountune MP275 engine kit. That increases power by 18 hp and 26 lb-ft of torque to 270 hp and 296 lb-ft. On the horse-per-dollar scale, the Mountune kit is pretty modest, but weíre told that the upgraded intercooler included with the kit is integral not only to making that power but also to keep it, because heat soak becomes a problem when increasing boost with just the stock intercooler. Itís been a few months since Iíve ripped around in a stock ST, but the tuner gave me a good shove back in my seat when I stomped on it. Far healthier than MTís long-term Volkswagen Golf GTI.
