EdgeAutosport.com's Focus ST Big Turbo Build

As the car sits now...



Hey guys, some of you know we bought a silver Focus ST back in the spring time but we've just been so busy this summer and fall, we haven't had time to really go to town on it like we wanted to. We've been hard at work and I think you guys will enjoy this build. We certainly already are and we're looking forward to what is in store. Here are some pics so far. We're doing quite a bit as we speak so we'll make sure to post up shortly with more pics and build info. We just did a pretty awesome photo shoot that's unlike anything we've ever seen so we'll drop that really soon. Trust me, it'll bring a smile to your face. :big smile:

Thanks for looking!

Had to take it out for a nice drive early on. You guys probably feel the same but I feel like the car begs to be driven, especially with such awesome roads all around our area. So we gave in. This is in Winter Park, CO. :)





First up was, none other than, the Cobb AccessPort. We ordered one early on obviously. We'll switch to a V3 once we get just a little deeper into the project!



Here's the CP-E Downpipe going in. We opted to go catless. The car doesn't get driven a ton and we have plans that warrant removing it so we did!



Here is the Milltek Catback Exhaust after finishing up. We went with non-resonated and black tips. Black and silver always looks awesome together if it's right. I honestly can't believe how it sounds like it does. It sounds like a monster when you open it up with a little higher pitched, sort of European sound but has absolutely no drone whatsoever. Sounds stock inside the car at ANY cruising speed and RPM level.



Here are a few shots from today of what's being worked on. The car will be a lot different here shortly!

In case you were wondering, we also have a 2009 Mazdaspeed 3 with a GT3076R turbo, among many other things of course. The ST should be closer to it's level here soon. ;)






Wheels just got in yesterday! They're custom Forgestar F14's. We were surprised to see that what we had chosen when we ordered them a few weeks ago was also the wheel that went on probably the most noteworthy Focus ST at the SEMA show we just returned from, the Gulf outfitted widebody Focus ST. I guess that made us feel pretty on point with wheel selection! We'll be powder coating them any day now and we'll post up after we do. This picture is actually of the raw aluminum. We wanted our own color done so they let us order them in raw finish (contact us if you're interested in these wheels BTW). Pretty cool!





Updated: 11/25/13

We'll be putting a Spec Stage 3+ on the car soon. Here it is!







Update: December 13, 2013

Finished up the turbo install and got most of our powder coated parts installed. We still need to install the ST Suspensions Rear Sway Bar as well as the Boomba Short Shift Plate and Short Shifter.







Random Shop Photos Added - 1/24/2014






UPDATE!! April 9 2014

Got the car on the dyno with the GTX2867 .86 a/r

Front Side:


Back Side:


Uncorrected:



Corrected for Altitude:




UPDATE: 03/18/15


Clutch and LSD have been installed. We broke our shifter cables and had to fix those this past weekend.




We also went ahead and stripped 146lbs worth of stuff out of the car just to see how much weight we could easily save.





And while we were at it, we Threw in the JBR Side mounts that have been waiting for so long!





And finally, as we've been teasing in some of the later post in this thread, here is the first official pic of our new wrap.








:UPDATE: 4/18/15

We are making some power now. Turbo setup has changed from the GTX2867 to an EFR7163 (PM us for details)




Shake down pass


Side note: We have been competing in Half Mile races with Shift Sector, and our current fastest trap is 147.3mph in the standing Half Mile.

Mother of god! Are you guys planning any fuel upgrades? And what about clutch? :)
We will be looking into fuel upgrades soon though we will likely run meth as well. As far as the clutch is concerned, we will definitely be upgrading that we just haven't decide which one yet. We will also be putting in the Quaife LSD at the same time as the clutch.

Wheels, intake, and sway bar are all at powder coat. We will hopefully be getting them back soon so we can get everything buttoned up under the hood :)

You guys should really consider powdercoating in house, start up cost isn't bad and powder is cheap. Shops make a killing on powdercoating stuff, I just did my intercooler pipes and compressor housing $24 in powder (1lb wrinkle red, 1lb coal black) and have a ton of powder left vs. a shop would have charged me $150 or so for this. Just a thought, the process is so easy as well. It literally requires no set skill like painting, too easy!
