Stage 3 Motorsports 2016 Focus ST 2.0L EcoBoost Project CarThe Focus STs immediately caught our eye back in 2013. Why it took so long for us to grab one of our own is a story for another day, but now we have our very own 2016 Focus ST to play around with. Rocking a 2.0L EcoBoost under the hood, a fully-loaded ST3 package replete with some carbon-fiber goodies and Oxford White Paint, this slick hot-hatch is already plenty of fun. However, we're going to take this Focus to the next level with a whole bunch of mods and an exterior overhaul that is sure to turn heads.
We installed a few inexpensive and simple mods to add some style to our Focus ST and to improve functionality. Little upgrades like aftermarket hood struts and spoiler lift brackets add a unique look to our car and help it stand out from every other Focus on the road. MORE INFO ON OUR ACCESSORY INSTALLS
We wanted our little Focus to handle like nobody's business both on the street and at the track, so we totally overhauled the suspension to make sure this car handled like it was on rails. With all this new hardware we couldn't simply leave the brakes untouched so we also made sure to bolt on some new rotors and pads for a well rounded setup. MORE INFO ON OUR SUSPENSION & BRAKES
The 2.0L EcoBoost motor hiding under the hood of our Focus is surprisingly powerful and does a good job of pulling the car around. That being said, there's always more power to be had so we got to work upgrading our ST's intake, exhaust system and tuning to set our Focus apart from the rest. MORE INFO ON OUR POWERTRAIN UPGRADES
The interior of our Focus ST is already a nice place to be with its Recaro racing seats, carbon fiber accents and plenty of tech. This doesn't leave much to change, but the addition of a few small upgrades like new floor mats and a gas pedal spacer help make it just that much better! MORE INFO ON OUR INTERIOR UPGRADES
