Ford Focus ST 250 Tuning Packages.

We offer a number of well refined tuning packages. We offer 280 and 300 BHP calibrations that can be installed via OBD here in Blackpool or via our extensive installer network and we can also offer in house or E-Mail supplied calibrations utilising the COBB Accessport system.

Take a look through the options below and see what we have to suit your current upgrade path.

MSD 280 conversion for the Ford Focus ST MK3 250

MSD 280 (up to 280PS)
This calibration works perfectly on a totally standard car and lifts the power restrictions from within the ECU, further enhancing the power output by 120NM and 30PS to 450NM and 280PS.

The factory rev limit and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained, whilst the relevant fuel, spark and load tables are further optimised to achieve this new power output.

Rest assured that if your coolant, oil, exhaust or charge temperatures get too high, the ECU will actively lower your available throttle opening and boost pressures as well as add fuel to cool things down until such time as the temperatures are back within safety parameters. Full LSPI / Knock control is retained at factory safety levels. Some tuners remove all this capability in order to achieve their power - Take care out there.

Additional hardware needed:

  • None.

Total cost installed to the car via OBD including an initial diagnostic session, labour and vat = £299.00

Note:
A great many additional features are available such as switchable maps and valet mode etc if you opt to install this calibration utilising the COBB Accessport. Please see the "Accessport & Multimaps" tab for more details

(This calibration can be supplied via E-Mail to existing COBB Accessport users at £199)

MSD 300 (up to 300PS)
This is as far as the standard turbo will allow you to go. Lifting the power up even further from our MSD 280 spec to new figures of 480NM and 300PS.

The factory rev limit and all the temperature protection features of the management system are still retained, whilst the relevant fuel, spark and load tables are further optimised to achieve this new power output.

Rest assured that if your coolant, oil, exhaust or charge temperatures get too high, the ECU will actively lower your available throttle opening and boost pressures as well as add fuel to cool things down until such time as the temperatures are back within safety parameters. Full LSPI / Knock control is retained at factory safety levels. Some tuners remove all this capability in order to achieve their power - Take care out there.

This calibration needs some airflow upgrades and its final power output will be determined by the condition of your factory engine and turbocharger as this tune takes the factory airflow capabilities to the limit..

Additional hardware needed:

  • Uprated FMIC with shutters removed.
  • 3” Stainless Steel Full Exhaust System.
  • Catalytic Converter Replacement Pipe / Sports Cat.
  • Performance Air Filter.
  • Denso ITV-22 or NGK LTR7IX-11 Spark Plugs.

Total cost installed to the car via OBD including an initial diagnostic session, labour and vat = £349.00

Note:
A great many additional features are available such as switchable maps and valet mode etc if you opt to install this calibration utilising the COBB Accessport. Please see the "Accessport & Multimaps" tab for more details

(This calibration can be supplied via E-Mail to existing COBB Accessport users at £249)

MSD 330 (up to 330PS)
This calibration requires a turbocharger upgrade in order to remove the engine airflow restrictions. Utilising the Garrett GTX2867R on quite low boost (Or AE Turbos Focus St Hybrid) we lift power output 500 NM and 330 PS.

The factory rev limit is lifted slightly and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained, whilst the relevant fuel, spark and load tables are further optimised to achieve this new power output.

Rest assured that if your coolant, oil, exhaust or charge temperatures get too high, the ECU will actively lower your available throttle opening and boost pressures as well as add fuel to cool things down until such time as the temperatures are back within safety parameters. Full LSPI / Knock control is retained at factory safety levels. Some tuners remove all this capability in order to achieve their power - Take care out there.

Additional hardware needed:

  • Uprated pistons strongly recommended.

MSD 400+ (400PS - 440PS)
This calibration requires a turbocharger upgrade and uprated and forged engine internals alongside fuel supply upgrades in order to handle this level of power and torque.

Typically utilising the Garrett GTX2867R and an auxiliary fuel delivery kit we can lift the power output to 540NM and over 400PS. (we have seen 440ps on a cammed 2300cc ecoboost)

The factory rev limit is lifted to 7200rpm and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained and optimised for this level of heat control. The ECU spark and load tables are fully optimised to achieve this new power output.

Rest assured that if your coolant, oil, exhaust or charge temperatures get too high, the ECU will actively lower your available throttle opening and boost pressures as well as add fuel to cool things down until such time as the temperatures are back within safety parameters. Full LSPI / Knock control is retained at factory safety levels. Some tuners remove all this capability in order to achieve their power - Take care out there.

This calibration will ONLY be supplied in house via full custom calibration on the dyno which will take a whole working day. Total cost installed to the car via COBB Accessport (not supplied) including an initial diagnostic session, labour, dyno time, graphs and vat = £649.00

Add a COBB Accessport and MSD Multimaps

The COBB Accessport is a firm favourite here. The handset transforms the vehicle by adding the option of up t six gauges on screen at any time out of a list of literally hundreds. It gives you data-logging and remote tuning capability, diagnostic facilities for reading codes and resetting KAM etc and allows us as tuners to harness the additional power of the COBB Ecoboost firmware to deliver even more awesome features!

These features include the ability to swap between MSD power stages in seconds (with the engine still running) The swap is done by pressing the cruise control cancel button and then using the + / - buttons to swap slots. The slot is shown by the rev counter as you press the buttons. (IE: It points to 1000rpm for slot 1, 2000rpm for slot 2, etc)

COBB Accessport MSD Multimaps

Yes, its as simple as that.
Pressing a button on your steering wheel can change your engines power output. The car also defaults to the last used slot on power up, so you can turn the car off in standard power if you are loaning the car to a friend for example...

Imagine having STD Power, MSD 280, MSD 300, a Valet mode (wont rev past 3000rpm or make more than 5psi boost and also an Immobiliser, all accessible from your steering wheel! Well with MSD Multimaps, you really can!

Some additional features that come as standard when you install our calibrations using the Accessport:
  • Multiple power levels available from steering wheel controls.
  • Valet mode available from steering wheel controls.
  • Immobiliser available from steering wheel controls.
  • Launch control always available.
  • Disable shift assist / rev hang.
  • 200+ Parameter high speed data-logger.
  • Remote tune upgrades and enhancements via E-mail.
  • High quality diagnostic tool that can also reset KAM / Adaptations etc.
  • Many, many more features!

Cost:

  • A COBB Accessport with MSD 280 calibration = £732 inc vat
  • A COBB Accessport with MSD 300 calibration = £782 inc vat
  • A COBB Accessport with MSD Multimaps calibration= £832 inc vat

(These calibrations can all be supplied via E-Mail for existing COBB Accessport users. You can purchase them directly from our webshop here)
