Author: admin Date: 13/08/2009 22:42Aftermarket tuning specialist Mountune Performance has developed an upgrade kit for the new Fiesta 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT Zetec-S and Titanium models.
Available through selected Ford dealerships across the UK, the performance upgrade consists of a high-flow air induction system, a high performance exhaust including high-flow catalyst and tubular manifold, and re-calibration of Fords 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT engine.
The result takes the target power output to 140PS at 6,750rpm and 170NM of torque at 4,250rpm, compared to 120PS and 152NM for the standard engine. The 0-60mph acceleration time is reduced to 7.9 seconds from the standard engine's 9.9 seconds.
The dealer-fit kits are fully approved by Ford and follow similar Mountune Performance Upgrades for the Focus ST and Fiesta ST models which were made available from the beginning of 2008.
