Performance ECU remap specialist Superchips Ltd. is offering a more dynamic and more menacing Mk3 Focus ST 2.0T. The latest production Ford Focus ST is already considered as dynamic and menacing, thanks to its 2.0-litre direct injection turbocharged Ecoboost engine that provides up to 246bhp of power and allows the hatchback to reach 154mph.
But the specialist’s latest latest product – a Superchips ECU remap for the Focus ST 2.0T -- is set to further improve the hatchback’s performance. Banking on a combination of chassis dyno and road testing, Superchips developed a performance remap for hatchback’s ECU, thereby optimizing boost levels, fuelling and ignition timing on the Ecoboost engine.
This results in a Superchips conversion that boosts power output and enhances response and refinement, but still retains factory failsafe protocols and reliability levels.
In-house dyno testing showed that the Superchips ECU remap for the Focus ST resulted to additional output of 51bhp at 4046rpm, with a peak power gain of 31bhp at 5655rpm. The Superchips ECU remap also resulted to significant increases in torque output from 2000 to 5000rpm, climaxing in an remarkable gain of 93Nm at just 3954rpm, with a peak torque hike of 69Nm at 3770rpm.
Modifications to the Focus ST’s drive-by-wire throttle settings allowed Superchips to improve pedal response, which when combined with the added torque, makes the vehicle become more dynamic to drive. The Superchips ECU remap is available for both five door hatchback and estate variants of Focus ST for a price of £455, inclusive of VAT and installation.
On sale now, the Superchips ECU remap suits both five door hatchback and estate variants of the May 2012 onwards 246bhp Focus ST 2.0-T, priced at £455.00 inclusive of VAT and installation (if required.) “The Superchips ECU remap for the previous version of the Focus ST remains one of our top selling products,” says Superchips’ MD Ian Sandford, “so we’re delighted that the latest variant of the car produces such strong results and is also Bluefin compatible as we anticipate strong demand from Ford owners.”
