Mountune's high performance intercooler upgrade kit for the Focus ST includes everything you need to optimize performance and is the foundation for further power upgrades. Using a 14-row extruded lightweight tube and fin alloy core with cast alloy end tanks for improved flow characteristics provides substantial reduction in Air Charge Temperature (ACT) with minimal pressure drop, ensuring optimum charge air temperature and therefor power.
The larger than stock intercooler is essential for sustained high speed or track use and is not as prone to heat soak as smaller intercooler cores. Mountune's Focus ST intercooler upgrade has reduced temperatures by over 39%.
Mountune developed a considerably larger and more efficient tube and fin type core that retains the OE mountune locations including ram air guides to direct air flow through the core and not around it. Lightweight cast alloy end tanks ensure improved intake airflow and include robust mounting points that do not require drilling for installation.
Using a tailored intercooler core allowed the use of OE intercooler hoses and piping. Excellent turbocharger response is maintained by retaining the OE intercooler track. Each intercooler is powder coated in black or silver to ensure years of corrosion free service.
Note: The removal of the vehicle AGS (Active Grill Shutter) is required for the installation of this product.
