Ford is really proud of their new 320 horsepower Focus RS, but their efforts are now made to seem pointless, as a German tuner has already more than that from a Focus ST. Using nothing but software and exhaust, Mcchip-DKR Ford Focus ST delivers 343 horsepower.
The new Focus RS uses a 2.3 liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-banger it has borrowed from the Mustang. Mcchip-DKR Ford Focus ST is powered by the old 2.0 liter unit, to which the tuner has added its own bespoke ECU map. It alters parameters for fuel and air mixture, injection, timing, and ignition.
The effect of the software is then complemented with lightly upgraded turbocharger and sport exhaust system with downpipe. The result is a meaty 343 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, greater turn of speed, and almost certainly a much nicer exhaust noise.
This track-prepped Ford Focus also appears to be fitted with an aero kit consisting of carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, and rear wing. High-performance wheels and tires are also included in the treatment. To top if all off, the car is wrapped in a super cool matte blue.
