Ford Australia has released an official performance kit for the Ford Focus and Fiesta ST. 

Filling the power gap between the standard ST models and the mighty Focus RS is a new factory-backed package from Mountune Performance. The kit will jump the Fiesta ST’s 1.6-litre turbo motor to 158kW of power and 320Nm of torque; that’s a 24kW and 80Nm hike. When applied to the Focus ST‘s larger 2.0-litre turbo powerplant, a solid 202kW of power and 400Nm of torque will be possible; an 18kw and 40Nm upgrade.
