British tuner Mountune offers a performance kit to deliver up to 260 horsepower to the new Ford Fiesta ST and Puma ST.
The latest Ford Performance city ??cars are both equipped with a 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine delivering 200 horsepower, with the Fiesta ST a torque of 290 Nm, and for the Puma ST a torque of 320 Nm, respectively allowing 0 to 100 km / h in 6.5 to 7 seconds.
But for customers who would like to rub shoulders with the new 261 horsepower Toyota GR Yaris, for example, the English tuner Mountune offers a performance kit called Mountune m260 for the Ford Fiesta ST and Puma ST .
Ford Puma ST and Fiesta ST: up to 260 hp and 365 Nm of torque
The m260 kit is marketed at a price of 675 pounds sterling, or the equivalent of 790 euros . At this price, Mountune will provide you with a small box that connects to your car’s OBD socket, and which will allow you to modify the engine mapping of your Ford Puma ST or Fiesta ST yourself !
Thanks to a mobile application, which makes your smartphone or tablet communicate via Bluetooth with the Mountune module, you can modify the performance of your sportswoman as you wish, thanks to three calibrations allowing to “unlock” from 235 to 260 horsepower , and from 350 Nm to 365 Nm maximum torque . Or, in the most powerful configuration, a gain of 60 horsepower and 75 Nm of torque (45 Nm for the Puma), resulting in a better sound at the exhaust as well as a more aggressive launch control mode. A “Standard power calibration” mode also allows you to return to the original configuration at any time.
To optimize the performance of Ford’s small sports cars, this engine preparation must be completed with parts marketed by Mountune, in addition to its electronic module: a pipe filler , an air / air exchanger, elbows and intake hoses, or even a more efficient air filter.
