The m225 package for the Mk 8 Fiesta ST provides significant increases to both power and torque, without compromising the vehicle’s safety or reliability.
The new upgrade is being launched alongside the innovative mTune SMARTflash app, which allows users to install and update vehicle calibrations in minutes from their smartphone.
With nothing but the new mTune SMARTflash app on their smartphone and the supplied Bluetooth OBD interface, Fiesta ST owners can completely change their vehicle. The intuitive SMARTflash system has been designed to make selection between different calibrations simple and fast, giving users the freedom to change the vehicle to suit their needs.
The new app also enables mountune customers to effortlessly update their vehicle with the latest calibrations directly from mountune and includes a convenient VIN and calibration ID reader.
“SMARTflash makes it incredibly easy for our customers to switch between vehicle calibrations in as little as two minutes, just using their phone,” explained David Moore, Director of mountune performance. “It adds a new level of convenience and functionality to our packages and embodies our forward-thinking approach to vehicle performance upgrades. The new Fiesta ST is the perfect platform to launch this DIY-friendly, pioneering technology. No laptop, no wires, no handsets – no problem!”
The ST’s peak power has been increased to 225PS with torque increased all the way to 340Nm, respective gains of 26PS and 55Nm – but that isn’t the whole story. The 1.5-litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine now delivers torque earlier and across the rev-range, completely transforming the driving experience with blistering acceleration. The package has reduced the car’s 0-60mph sprint from 6.5 seconds to below the 6 second mark and cut a full second from Ford’s in-gear 31-62mph benchmark.
Prices for the upgrade begin at £480 approx..
