The stock intercooler is pretty awful on these cars.  Pretty much feels like having a TMIC honestly.

Oh, so in other words, it's not void at all.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

It just depends on the dealer and the situation.  Same as going stage 2 on a Subaru.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

Okay Chris, grow up. You know what he meant by voided. He will not be able to make any engine claims on his car. It doesn't depend on the dealer with Subaru. Subaru makes you send them pictures of the car, as well as screenshots of the computer readings. (with WRX's) Being so, that when it sees anything was changed with the tuning, your claim will be declined.

Though, you know exactly what he meant, you felt like being a twat.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

The most inexpensive FMIC I have found so far is Levels Performance for $499... please show me the $300 FMIC and $250 DP while you're at it. smile

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

With a quick search I found a $360 one, so maybe I was off there.  My point is still completely valid.

Rally Sport Direct overcharges considerably. I'm sure you could get it much cheaper from a vendor on whatever the FOST equivalent to NASIOC is.

Fair point, also finding one used would not be impossible either.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

Here is the OTS Cobb map for the mods I listed:

http://www.focusst.org/forum/attachments/focus-st-performance/93569d1429544306-dyno-charts-2pxrajb.jpg

Stock DynoJet numbers are normally, 225whp/265wtq so not a bad upgrade, you would get even more out of it with a protune obviously.

No, the misinformation just needs to die. The correction is a means to that end.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

Your warranty is still intact if you mod your car. You can still make warranty claims, but Ford would have the ability to deny such a claim if the broken part was related to a modification you made.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

Ok ok Mr. nit-picky. Whether it's in warranty until proven otherwise or not, you blow a motor or similar while modded outside of stock, you're fucked.

I must've missed it, dick bagel. Fuck.

I mostly agree on not buying a packaged mod, BUT, the Ford Racing warranty from a dealer installed package is worded in a way that seems clear: Ford will not deny a warranty claim with this package installed... I think that's where the premium cost comes in.

Best option for performance? Probably not.

Great to know a warranty claim will stand? Fucking A.

Re: Ford Releases a Focus ST Power Upgrade Kit

Agreed, however they have to install it too so its even more than that.

Me thinks stock and slow is the way to go.
