Project Focus ST: Getting More Power with Cobb Tuning!
We have been pretty impressed with our Focus ST from the beginning. The car has wowed us with great performance and practical internal volume, great for hauling passengers and stuff. Previously we have upgraded the suspension, wheels and tires. With the chassis taken care of it's now time for more power.
In our last segment of Project Focus ST, we reviewed some parts from Cobb Tuning for our car. To get a nice safe boost in power, we got a Cobb Stage III upgrade which includes a V3 Access port ECU flasher, larger more efficient intercooler, larger charge pipes, a cold air intake, a larger freer flowing downpipe, a freer flowing exhaust and a heavy duty motor mount.
We felt that the Cobb Stage III set up would work exceptionally well because it is a totally engineered package with all the parts designed to work together. The best thing about the package is that Cobb has an optimized tune to go with all of these parts. We will see just how well this off the shelf tune works with our lame 91 octane California fuel.
Now it was time to install everything and test it out!
