    Interesting article in Autoexpress on Wednesday compared to the S3 could be good value for money !!!

    Ford has today announced an approved Mountune performance upgrade for the Focus ST hatchback.

    The Mountune Performance package comprises a larger intercooler, a high-flow air filter and re-mapped engine management software, increasing power to 256bhp and torque to 400Nm – lifting the fast Ford right into Audi S3 territory. The standard ST makes do with 222bhp and 320Nm.

    The increases mean the 0-62mph sprint is shaved by 0.6 seconds to 5.9 seconds, and because the upgrade is Ford approved it does not affect the manufacturer’s warranty.

    Priced at £1,120 plus fitting, the kit can be fitted to new or used cars by a select group of specialist dealers, a list of whom can be found at www.mountuneperformance.com. A performance suspension kit for the Focus ST is also under development, as well as upgrade packages for other Ford models.

    We’ll be putting the Focus ST Mountune on the road very shortly, so be sure to grab your copy of Auto Express 1,031, on sale Wednesday 24th September, to get the definitive verdict.
