5.0 Mustang & Super Fords - 2013 Focus ST Steeda's Downpipe & Rear Engine Mount Install

Hello All,

5.0 Mustang & Super Fords just finished up adding our downpipe & rear engine mount to their project car.

Quote:
We really didnít know what to expect from adding just the Steeda high-flow-cat downpipe with no tuning or other mods. However, the results were quite impressive. Though the downpipe gave up a few crumbs of power and torque down low, it definitely moved the needle in a positive direction at the top side of the rpm range. Though the peak-to-peak gains were only 10.3 hp and 2.03 lb-ft, the downpipe really helped the turbo 2.0 pull harder at the top of the tach. By 3,800 rpm, the entire curve is moved up; by 6,300 rpm, it registered beefy gains of 31.48 hp and 26.24 lb-ft of torque at the front wheels. Thatís an improvement that you feel in the seat of the factory Recaros.

Have some downtime at work and decided to surf FF. Can't click on that link because of the security measures on my work computer: "Not allowed to browse Lingerie/Bikini category" is why it was blocked.

lol.

Hey Tj I'm not sure if this has been asked before but I can't find it, does steeda's tune or the down pipe affect the factory warranty at all? If not, I'll be ordering all of it next week! Thanks

Well Josh this is how it works. The manufactorer has to prove that your aftermarket parts are the actual cause of a failure to deny you a warrranty repair. The great thing about Steeda's stuff they sell is they work very closey with FoMoCo so Steeda will go up to bat for you if a Ford dealer tried to deny you a warranty claim due to one of Steeda's parts. I have Steeda's tune and the short shift bracket and love them both. The tune is awesome and really gives the ST an extra kick in the pants.

My question is do you need a tune with the catted downpipe or is the ECU that sensitive it will kick off a cat inefficiency code due to the high flow cat?
