Arite!?

Anyone out there that's running a Focus 1.6T with the MP200 kit fitted?

Im reading that its 6.9 seconds 0-60 and still manages to get 40+mpg!?

Surely its to good to be true!

I don't know of anyone running the MP , but i would say the mpg is far from what you would get , mines only the 150 and i do short trips and i'm at 29.4 mpg.

I would imagine your gain in performance would only be at the higher rev range , so to get any where near 40 mpg you would have to drive at 2000 rev range and no higher.

errrm... im not sure about the 0-60 time being the same as a Fiesta ST! that mild increase in power wont be enough to shave that much time off. i would say its optimisitc, but by all means prove me wrong :)

Check out the mountune website. On the 182 version 7.9 0-60 as stock. With the MP 200 kit it says 6.9! Like I said, sounds to good to be true.....

Sounds dire preee! Autotrader claims the 182 will give 47.9 combined. We all know you can knock 10-15% off of that, they are never true figures.

i averaged 40.3mpg (trip computer figure) when i had my 180, and that was hard work keeping that there!

 

had a look at the graphs on the website and to be fair, i wasnt expecting that much of a gap in the differences - i know my focus was longer geared though compared to my fiesta now, so that probably makes better use of the upgrade  B)

The torque graph especially! 235 up to 320 or so?

40mpg seems more like it. So with the upgrade maybe 35?

The MP200 does sound like a really cool car. Looks like a 'normal' Focus but goes like stink. Would love to hear from someone who has one  :)

My thinking exactly James. Might cause some argument here, but I reckon a normal focus with the style pack looks better than an ST.....

And if its as quick as Mountune are saying its well worth a look.

Admittedly I didn't check on price but it's definitely got a bit more sleeper/q-car status!
The ST front end look does really divide opinion so this could be the right balance.

35mpg wouldn't be a bad estimate I guess, that's still better than an ST though right? ;)

The Zetec S are going for 14-14.5k on Autotrader. Add £1200 for the MP200 kit and you'd still be saving 2-3 grand on an ST.

I think i'll get one! I'd happily trade a bit o speed for the better mpg. Plus, the missus has been moaning that she had to put 100 quid through the Mondeo last week!

After humming and haying about this, MP200 vs ST I went to have a look at some. Ended up putting a deposit down on an Evo......

Im even disappointed in myself! traitorous!

Mutinee - mr Christian!  - but why do half measures -  what model Evo is it?

 

I get 40+ MPG (approaching 50 on a run if im really trying) and have a 7.1sec 0-60mph (yes i dont have an MP200, Fiesta ot even a petrol car ) - i don't thing its that big a deal and i think as time goes on more cars will be released with exellent (or at least a good balance of) performance AND economy - because they will gave to ie - Golf GTE (Hybrid version of GTI)  200Hp/  180MPG

It's an evo X. 61 plate fq-300 with an upgrade by Mitsubishi to 330.
We keep two cars and the bike. Between the 2 cars we do 10k miles per year, plus whatever I do on the bike at weekends. So it'll be the Mondeo and the Evo. Daily run around cars I suppose......

I've been following your thread on the dieseler FOCA, as you know. 7.1 is something else! Scared a few people away from the lights I bet!?
