The fourth generation Ford Focus ST was optimized by mountune thanks to the m330 kit, which brought the power of its 2.3 turbo four-cylinder to 330 hp. The new m365 kit makes it possible to further improve the power and torque of the blue oval sports car. Note that as standard, its engine develops 280 hp and 420 Nm of torque, enough to take advantage of quite dignified performance. But the most demanding of their bikes, always demanding more, can increase the Focus ST mk4’s power to 365 hp and torque to 560 Nm. All the necessary parts for the conversion cost no more than £2,000 or €2,362. at the current exchange rate.
mountune’s latest m365 tuning kit for the Focus ST takes the m330 kit a step further but is based on the same parts and provides higher horsepower and torque throughout the rev range. This performance upgrade is achieved by the installation of a high-flow air filter, a new downpipe with sports catalyst and a new Sports Particulate Filter (GPF) to significantly reduce engine exhaust back pressure without affecting vehicle emissions. All this is combined with an in-house electronics box associated with the Bluetooth OBD interface and a Smartflash app that works on any smartphone or tablet.
This system makes it possible to very simply modulate the performance of the engine on demand through the application, according to four different levels: performance m365, performance m330, “stock” performance and anti-theft. This gives users the freedom to tailor their vehicle to their needs and current fuel quality. The M365 kit has been time-tested by mountune engineers to meet UK standards. However, the coach does not specify whether his new kit has been approved in France.
