As you can see, the stock turbo can't flow enough air to keep up with the initial ass kicker of wtq. But, it's a giant step in the right direction.

They yanked an extra 20-25 hp out with a tune alone? Dang, the ST just got even more enticing.

Imagine if Ford brought back the RS200 with a ramped up version of that motor . . .

I added the STC dyno to the ST Dyno Numbers thread and recomputed the average whp / wtq figures. Doing the math based on the new average means with the tune, the ST is producing around 280 crank hp and 334 ft-lb torque. Not bad at all.

From what I read, the 2011 RS500 got it's extra power from some airflow changes that allowed the motor to breathe better. Hopefully we can expect similar results once an intake and exhaust are added! Keep up the good work!

The Focus RS500’s 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine has been juiced up some 45 hp and 14 lb-ft of torque from its appearance in the Focus RS; here it makes 345 hp and 339 lb-ft, achieved mostly through breathing enhancements instead of additional turbo boost.

now they need to do a 1/4 mile, im sure it could break into the 13's with that tune.
so that just goes to show everyone that 28k to buy the car and 600-700 into the exhaust 100+ into the intake and a tune could possible yeild a mid 13 second car.

Or buy a Mustang GT for about the same price of that all and run 12.6's stock as a rock.

Just sayin.

People need to keep in mind that this dyno shows MORE boost and thats where the added performance came from

Granted other things have been addressed as well through the tune

With the TQ taking a nose dive like it does I still cannot see this making a 13 sec pass

I will be offering tuning very soon

so im guessing you have been able to get your hands on a 2013 st huh?

from this stand point right now what do you thin will have to be done to fix that nose dive its taking? better breathing? different turbo? a tune that will give up a little tq but create a better power band across the board?
