Completely stock with my uncle's tune it puts down 253whp and 323wtq at 2400 rpms, but falls off around 5-6k. The stock turbo sucks, so from a performance standpoint, the intake, exhaust, and turbo need to be upgraded.
That Turbo is Maxxed for sure. Thats why it makes no sense to buy this car in my book (if you already own a mk3 focus). If ford just went a little wilder they could have had the same numbers with a better turbo and a turbo that wont fall flat on its ass from 5000+

The ST and Standard are still to Similar. Saw Fusion Ecoboost AWD yesterday and that makes more sense to me.
