So from what I can tell at this stage is that there is a kit that can produce close to 300bhp crank (using the 15% guess rule) with 10psi boost.

This is impressive as I used to have to put at least 25-30psi through my previous 1.8t audi engine when I was living in Europe. Granted, a lower compression ratio and not direct injection.

Anyway, this is tempting as in the country I live now Ford do not offer the ST for sale. They only offered the 2.0 NA and 1.5 Ecoboost. I don't think a 1.5 Ecoboost would be able to produce these numbers even with a tune.

Only issue for me is the fact I have DCT, and guess what, where I live Ford never sold the manual gearbox.

I'm worried the DCT clutches will slip.

For the DCT the MK3 Full kit I sell would be best , it makes less HP/TQ per psi but still give you good added performance and some of my DCT Customers are at 11psi

Tom,

Probably a dumb question but I've been lurking and debating to get your kit for my NA 6 speed auto SE. Do you think it would work as effectively as a 6 speed? Or would these kinds of numbers only be reachable with a manual. Again, probably a dumb question.

Thanks!

Yes, the VIN number can say whatever it wants but the compression the engine is putting out can easily impact the amount of boost it is capable of handling. The ST engine 9:3:1 compression can hold more boost with its fuel pump, however the SE 12:1 compression can only take so much boost. With mine being the 12:1 compression NOT 9:3:1 it is a TRUE SE

The problem is we dont know the limits of the DCT , The MK3 Full Turbo Kit is working good on the DCT at 11psi but its a smaller Turbo so it doesnt make as much HP / TQ to the wheels

where is the fault in the dct for this kit? and what are necessary upgrades to push a little over stock st numbers with a dct? and is there possibly a performance clutchpack that I could buy for a dct to handle that powerload? I heard that the clutch starts slipping post 200 wheel torque

By the logic of VIN, this is the most powerful Focus SE in the country. 😜

We dont know where the DCT limits are , we dont know where the DCT starts slipping , The MK3 Full kit doesnt make the power of the MK3 DIY Kit and we have people at 11psi which is in the 200 TQ range for a couple years with no issues

The ZX_ was the body style badge. They still had trim badges.

It's also a joke.
