To reach such a stratospherically-high level of power output, Louis had the engine in his Mk III Focus ST built to withstand a massive Garrett GTX 2867R turbo, and fitted a Cobb exhaust and methanol-injection. The motor was tuned by Stratified Automotive Controls.
The hot hatch also boasts a range of other modifications to make it race-ready, such as Sparco bucket seats, a full roll cage, and a quick-release steering wheel. A full suite of upgraded suspension bits keeps all its massive horsepower in-check on the street.
“In-check” may sound like an improbable dream for a front-wheel-drive Focus ST with 100 horsepower more than a stock, AWD Focus RS, but Farah actually seems to find the car quite easy to handle through some twisty mountain roads. Check it out in the video above.
