The mountune performance MT260 package for the Mk2 Focus ST consists of:
The MT260 upgrade offers a 35PS delta increase over standard, taking power to 260PS at 5500rpm, whilst torque is raised to 400nm at 2,500 to 4,000rpm.

I have enjoyed many performance Fords over the last 30 years, all of them tuned to some degree, but nothing could have prepared me for the storming performance this seemingly mild upgrade produces. The specs don't even begin to tell the story, and if you're looking to put a mighty smile on the face of your Focus ST 225 without breaking the bank, then this is surely the way to do it. The torque and sheer get-up-and-go from 2,000rpm upwards are sensational in all gears, and the fact that it did not invalidate the Ford warranty on a new vehicle says everything about its reliability. On Mountune's advice, I took the precaution of having an RS Mk2 clutch fitted, as the OE unit is barely sufficient for the engine in standard trim (in fact I had already encountered slipping in 6th gear a couple of times), and the beefier RS unit gives the assurance of planting the power firmly on the road. It was a long and early journey from Somerset to Mountune, as I needed to be there at 7am so that the upgrade and clutch could all be installed in one day. I was made most welcome by Fred and spent some enjoyable hours in the comfortable waiting room, where there is TV and wi-fi. The Focus ST 225 is a lovely vehicle in standard trim, but the mt260 upgrade transforms it into something else, something that is truly ehilarating while remaining civilised. My thanks to the professionalism of the Mountune team - I'm a happy man!
