Mk2 Ford Focus ST

ford focus stThe Mk2 Ford Focus ST powered by Volvo’s famous T5 engine but with added rework from Ford, taking it from the 2.4 to a 2.5 and branded as the I5 Duratec.

This engine was later used in the Mk2 Ford Focus RS but Ford changed numerous engine components, which raised the horsepower figure from 225bhp – 305bhp.

I would describe my Focus ST as subtle compared to many others yet its modified tastefully to try and be different. I have used well known motorsport companies to source the best and correct items to assist with gaining the horsepower figure I was looking for so many thanks to Dreamscience Tuning, Mountune Performance, Collins Performance and a local company Linton Motors in Bromyard. With help from all these tuners it’s now producing nearly 350bhp. Now it is at the power I was looking for, it’s now time to enjoy it with a road trip to the famous Nurburgring this summer.
