Torque with a turbo would be the advantage I think. My last turbo car had more torque than hp, lol, meaning if they offered a DCT with it, it would HAVE to be beefier, otherwise I'd imagine it would get a 6MT.

But an engine factory turbo'd is just easier to upgrade the turbo... oil lines already tapped, intercooler already mounted and unless they want to raise the hood it would probably be a baby front mount, meaning easier upgrade options there too.

It would be really nice if they would have put the 1.6t thats in the up coming fiesta st as the standard engine. The 1.0t the base.

IMHO Ford should have made the ST AWD.

I may have lost you on that on, RS? I guess I was looking at it from another angle. The ST and the WRX are pretty close price and performance wise. The WRX is AWD and Ford still doesn't offer that in the Focus.
From my experience with my Focus in the snow, I can only imagine what the ST would be like with all that power.

I couldn't agree more.

If the ST was in a sedan AWD form......I would already own one.
