MOUNTUNE LAUNCHES ALL NEW POWER UPGRADE KIT FOR FOCUS ST DIESEL
In tuning PR, owners of Ford’s high-performance diesel, the Focus ST diesel, can now unlock even more performance with the launch of mountune’s m460D power upgrade kit. The m460D kit includes an OBDII flashing cable, dongle, performance calibration and a mountune badge. Mountune’s calibration will reduce the 0-60mph time by 0.7 seconds and cut the 31-62mph time by 0.5 seconds.
David Moore, Global Brand Manager
“mountune has been producing market-leading power upgrades for over a decade. This is the first time we’ve been able to unlock the potential in a ST diesel product”, says David Moore, Global Brand Manager. “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.”
Power output increases by a healthy 20bhp. Torque improves by 50Nm. This results in a significant performance improvement, while retaining the correct DPF regen strategy. This means that a safe and reliable performance is certain. The kit can be installed at home, but mountune would encourage customers to have it fitted at the team HQ. The team HQ is where the company builds its BTCC and Rallycross engines. Customers can make use of a free Xbox, snacks and drinks while mountune specialists set to work on their car.
The product is £429 for DIY installation or £350 for installation at mountune HQ in Brentwood. This is due to the DIY fit requiring an individual dongle and cable. The m460D, which is only available for cars with a manual transmission, is one of the most affordable ways to add both performance figures and real-world ability to a Focus ST diesel.
