Cutting the 0-60 mph time to 7.4 seconds in the process
Mountune, the UK-based aftermarket company that specializes in Ford vehicles, has released its first power upgrade kit for the diesel-powered Focus ST.
For £350, Mountune will install the m460D power kit that increases the 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine’s output and torque by 20 hp and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft), for a total of 205 hp and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). As a result, the kit is said to reduce the Ford Focus ST diesel’s 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time by 0.7 seconds to 7.4 seconds and cut the 31-62 mph (50-100 km/h) time by 0.5 seconds to 6.4 seconds.
The m460D kit includes an OBDII flashing cable, dongle, performance calibration and a Mountune badge. The tuner says the upgrade retains the correct DPF regen strategy, allowing for “safe, reliable performance.”[NativeAd]
Mountune will charge you £350 if you want the kit installed at their headquarters or dealers. If you want to install it at home, the price is £429, due to the fact that a DYI fit requires an individual dongle and cable.
“The standard Focus ST diesel is a great base car, but with the m460D kit installed we’ve been able to make it smoother, quicker and generally even more fun to drive.”
David Moore, Mountune global brand manager
