Had to post some updates on our 2013 2.0 Ecoboost ST Escape.

We re-drilled the funky 5x108 hubs to the far more common 5x114 pattern. That was "difficult" to say the least. Made a jig and were able to use a carbide drill on the front, the rear hubs unbolt easily so we took those off and did them in the mill.


This allowed us to use 19x9" Ford Mustang "Brembo Track PAck" OEM wheels and 255 40 Pirelli summer tires!. We machined the Mustang badges from the center caps, machined them down a bit, and affixed "ST" badges. We have also added an ST badge to the front lower grill and rear hatch. Removed the Ecoboost badge.



We swapped out the stock spare with an aluminum 17" unit from a 2013 Mustang as well. 10 pounds lighter!

We developed a bolt on axle back 2.5" 304 SS exhaust, have done lots of testing and now have created a jig. Look for production units soon. Sounds great and saves 19lbs off the car!!!




Added a spoiler


Put a hitch on too.... I know I know. Weight. But we do like to add a bike rack to the back and it works perfect with a real receiver hitch.



Added a Focus ST engine cover


Along with a modified FSWerks intake tube which we powder coated blue.

Massive oil cap of course.

Did a complete leather seat conversion, black with blue alcantara inserts. The kit did come with door panel inserts as well, just haven't gotten around to installing those yet.



We also installed a pod on the dash with a Stack boost and oil pressure gauge. Pics of those tomorrow.

Anyways. Hope you like her. More to come.

Looks sweet. Where did the leather seats come from? Do they make any for the focus?

This is awesome! Just lower it to stock FoST height on coilovers, intercooler, aggressive tune (not sure what this engine config is capable of), brakes, and more weight reduction. Build tread?

So the Escape and ST have the same intercooler. Does that mean some of the ST options will fit the Escape?
Yes indeed. Same basic chassis underneath and identical engine. The intake was basically the same, just needed one additional vacuum port added.

We got the leather from Roadwire. We are a dealer for them BTW!!!! Excellent quality and totally customizable. You cant tell from the pics but I had them do a blue contrast stitch on everything too. Looks killer. They do make them for the regular Focus. Not sure if they have patterns for an ST1 or the like tho?
