Exactly what I was thinking, I want to see if his numbers add another 10hp maybe more, then it really makes the new ST less appealing. If it had 300 it would be a different story.

Add a roush supercharger down the road, which you'll be able to do standalone, and you'd easily be making 240whp, (obviously this is a guess, but 60whp isn't a lot for an s/c). I don't plan on getting a new car until spring, so I guess I can see what the STs do with light mods, if that motor is near maxed out, or if light mods make it 300+hp...

aftermarket parts on the ST will probably push it near 300. Will be interesting to see if anybody takes the turbo from the ST and sticks it on a 5MT focus, DCT cant handle that much torque

Depends on the snail they used and a few other things, there are several factory turboed cars out there, that made very little hp with mods, until you change the turbo.

yeah that's true, the real limit for oxy is the DCT, it supposedly is limited to 175 ft/lbs of torque, which is fine for NA because it still is only in the 140s maybe 150s with header, but a SC or turbo will probably get over that.

Truth, I'd get an M5 if I go base focus over an ST.

The ST 2.0t will make 300whp with a tune and boost controller. Im getting the ST because the interiors are worlds apart. The ST was torture tested to 470hp from ford before it had issues.

The current focus cant make much more power then where its at without ripping the motor apart and putting lower compression. 200whp from a basic focus is good but the ST is going to be where its at for me. Fully loaded those recaros already have my butt waiting to sit in them.

High compression and boost dont mix. you can maybe put 8 psi into this motor and thats about it. 280 (maybe) whp for another 5000. When a base ST starts at 24,900.

You cant get a base focus for under 20,000 that will compare to the ST base

Are you going to sell your current one or keep both?
