still not seen an st on the road yet but the orange does look nice, good choice. I cant quite justify the insurance for the st yet :( but a superechiped focus st with almost 300hp sounds exciting!

I emailed superchips the other day who are well respected and they said nothing is out yet for this engine so I would be wary of that offer and those claims.

Hi, which is weird as they do one for the 125ps engine fitted to the Mk3 Focus http://www.superchip...Boost 125PS.pdf I think taking the engine up to 200ps is fine for a race engine that will be stripped and rebuild after every race. But for a road car it would not be reliable..

Hi the superchips remap for the focus isn't a straight swap as the focus has a six speed transmission. I'd thing a 20-50bhp upgrade would be fairly reasonable and shouldn't start to stress the engine and other components too much.

the only concern i would have is keeping the engine cool pushing it much. for eco reasons and things the ecoboost does heat up really quickly which is the point as its more efficient but ramming more psi and fuel in there i think it would require quite a few supporting mods, maybe a nice shiny big intercooler, maybe even an external oil cooler also.

Hi, I didn't say it was, however the map is there, thus the ability to make one for the fiesta should be feasible as the engine performance with the Focus in the same in stock map. Unless of course, like many remapping companies, they are waiting for a generic one to be released from someone else..

I agree, i think they all want to wait and see who comes out with something 1st but like you said it should be pretty easy just to modify it and get a fiesta in to test on for a day. sure there wont be much of a change as it is the same engine.

I'm currently looking at the zs but one thing I'm keen on is more power, 150/160 should do it, however lets hope mountune release something, they don't tend to have the highest figures but they do seem to be rapid :)

Mountune packs are usually a little slower than if you took it to somewhere specialising in performance parts, as Mountune have to work within what Ford will give them. They have the MR kits which aren't bad and void bits of the warranty though, and I'd imagine they would do a kit for you if you wanted more power, just it won't have the warranty backing.

I remember seeing the video of the mountune focus st with something like 250bhp beating a much higher powered focus st, sometimes big bhp isn't everything, although I completely understand what your saying.

Some of these dynos/ rolling roads are very "highly tuned", especially if you are getting work done/ remaps performance parts done at the same time/ from the same people

 

The shape and spread  of the power/ torque curve is important, not just the peak Hp amount  

 

the crank Hp is meaningless and often "guessed" or exaggerated -

 

i have a printout i got online of a "190Hp" st-tdci, the wheel Hp = 135Hp (whats going on there? ) -my crank Hp 160, wheel Hp 141 

 

I would take it all with a very big pinch of salt

its all about torque and drive ability, u can have a 300hp fiesta but if its all the way at the red line you will never see it and if u cannot put the power down on the road then whats the point. simple steps are always the best, a better flowing exhaust and an ecu remap and i think this ecoboost engine will be all the car you need for a great daily driver plus will probably be the quickest thing u will get for around the pice of the standard car plus a 500-600 exhaust then a remap looking around 400 in general then i doubt no other car maker out there has an answer...
