« Back Ford Mountune Focus ST m365
Mountune has been tuning Fast Fords for a very long time and we’re big fans here at BOTB.
From the sweet handling Fiesta ST m260 to the utterly insane Mk3 Focus m520, we’ve driven them all and love the way they go down a road. But now there’s a new Focus and Mountune have been busy there too.
The Mk4 Focus ST is a great package, using a detuned version of the old RS’s 2.3 litre Ecoboost engine with 276bhp and incredibly good handling and ride in a family hatchback.
But it really isn’t that fast, so Mountune set about creating a tuning package and the m365 was born – which means it now packs 360bhp and 560Nm, which is a fiar bit more than what the Mk3 RS had. It’s still FWD, so the 0-62mph time is only cut to 5.0 seconds, but the in-gear acceleration is scintillating. Mountune's GPF-back exhaust and sports cat and GPF means you'll get a much sportier noise, allowing the engine to breathe better, while their short shifter will improve the feel when you go through the gears.
Once you get going, you'll need to stop better too, which is why we've added Mountune's brake upgrade kit as well.
To help with the look of the ST we’ve also added a set of Oz Leggera 19-inch alloys with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres and a nice Mountune side sticker. All in all, it’s a great package that we can’t wait to get our hands on.
