Fiesta ST and Puma ST Gain Power Boost Through Mountune Packages
Find out how Ford's tuning specialist, Mountune, have upgraded the Fiesta ST and Puma ST.
Both performance cars have been given a decent dose of extra power.
Ford tuning specialist Mountune has released new performance upgrades for the Fiesta ST hot hatch and Puma ST crossover.
Both cars make 197bhp as standard, but this is boosted to between 246bhp and 256bhp courtesy of the new m260 packages.
The pack costs £675 for new customers, but costs just £99 for owners who already have a Mountune kit fitted to their vehicle and want to upgrade it. It includes a new induction kit, charge pipe kit and intercooler.
The m235 upgrade pack, which was originally only available for the Fiesta ST, is now offered on the Puma ST for the first time. Costing £575, it bumps power up to 231bhp and is installed through a Bluetooth-enabled dongle that accesses the car through its OBD port, and can be controlled through a smartphone app.
David Mountain, Mountune founder, said: “We are delighted to offer our customers, not one, but two new performance upgrades for both the Puma ST and Mk8 Fiesta ST. The Puma ST has been well received since it launched and we have worked hard to improve the already impressive vehicle, taking its performance to the next level.
“The two kits launched for this car increase both power and performance whilst retaining an OEM+ feel.”
The Ford Fiesta ST and Puma ST both use a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, with a six-speed manual gearbox feeding power to the front wheels. On top of increasing power, the Mountune packages improve the exhaust note and make for better launch control.
