  1. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hello, So I've noticed a very popular upgrade for the ST225 - RS spark plugs. Can someone please explain me how can one differentiate a genuine RS spark plug versus an ST spark plug? I'm asking because in my local parts e-shop, if you search for RS or ST spark plugs, the results show the same...

  4. Mk3 ECU Remapping & Software
    When checking my car details on the insurers website the following details are shown :- FORD FOCUS ST 3 (275 - UPGRADE) I would see this as being the Mountune MP275 Upgrade, but there are no obvious indications (Branded Intercooler, Induction Kit, etc) Would this possibly be as it was...
  5. Mk3 Gearbox, Clutch & Running Gear
    Hi All, The time has come to replace the clutch on my 2012 74k ST. Its got a Bluefin remap, so Id like to upgrade to the RS clutch. Ive got some questions: 1) Is it a drop in replacement? No special instructions for the new clutch? 2) Do I need a new flywheel? Obviously a new one is...

    Hey folks, Has anyone upgraded/retrofitted the larger 8" screen/system and fascia to an ST fitted with the old 4"?

  10. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hi all, In my mind now I'm set at wanting my ST to run at around 300Bhp. So far its at stage 1 and has the RS clutch conversion upgrade, and I have the R-Sport intercooler stage 1 sat at home ready for fitting tomorrow hopefully. What upgrades will I need to run my car at 300Bhp? I can assume...
  11. Mk2 Gearbox, Clutch & Running Gear
    Just wondering. Everyone on here just seems to go out and buy the complete RS clutch conversion. Costs about £650-700 for the parts alone. The big cost item in this conversion is the RS dual mass flywheel. You can buy a lightened single mass flywheel for less money than the RS one, just...

    Hi all, I am thinking about upgrading my Focus ST-3 (59 Reg, 20,000 miles) by either using Dreamscience or Mountune. My concern is how this will affect the re-sale of the car. Will it affect the price of the car in the long run? Also if you were to buy an MKII ST, would you look for an...

    Just ordered a Mountune 275 upgrade for my new mk3 ST3. (275ps 400nm torque) Has anyone had one fitted? Anyone had one on a dyno after or comment on added performance? I know I could have got a better upgrade cheaper but as its a brand new car I can't afford to mess with the warranty. Also...
  17. Mk2 Turbo & Intercooler
    Basically, I'm looking to give my 2008 facelift ST3 a bit more go, but without spending loads. Was simply going to go for a remap, but then figured if I spend a bit more before the remap it'll be much more worthwhile... Would a cheap intercooler be worth bothering with? Or is there any other...
