mountune Intercooler Upgrade (black) Focus ST 2013-16

2363-IC-BA2 Black

The mountune high performance intercooler upgrade kit for the Mk3 Focus ST includes everything you need to optimize the performance of your ST and is the foundation for further power upgrades.
Using a 14-row extruded lightweight tube and fin alloy core with cast alloy end tanks for improved flow characteristics, the mountune intercooler upgrade gives a substantial reduction in Air Charge Temperature (ACT) with minimal pressure drop, ensuring optimum charge air temperature and therefore power. The larger than stock, mountune intercooler is essential for sustained high speed or track use and is not as prone to heat soak as smaller intercooler cores currently on the market. The performance of the mountune intercooler upgrade has been validated through extreme air temperature and vehicle speed testing. Compared to the original intercooler, the mountune Focus ST intercooler upgrade reduced outlet air temperature by over 39% for the same given intercooler inlet air temperature.
  • Superior tube and fin construction
  • Cast end tanks for purposeful air flow management
  • No drilling is required for installation
  • Durable Black powder coated finish
  • Core size 29.5 in x 11.7 in x 2.0 in - more than twice the size of the OE intercooler
  • High quality brackets and hardware included
  • Super light weight Intercooler assembly weighs less than 20 lbs.
  • 44% improvement in pressure drop - 3.4kPa vs. 6kPa (250hp)
  • Will support high power applications including turbocharger upgrades
  • Pressure tested to ensure quality and performance
  • mountune logo can be applied with included stencil
Technical
Considerable testing and development revealed the need for a larger than stock and more efficient intercooler core to improve the performance of the MK3 Focus ST. mountune engineers have developed a considerably larger and more efficient tube and fin type core that retains the OE mounting locations . Lightweight cast alloy end tanks ensure improved intake airflow and include robust mounting points that do not require drilling for installation. Using a tailored intercooler core allowed the use of the OE intercooler hoses and piping that ensure superior NVH control when compared to typical silicone hose type installations. Additionally, excellent turbocharger response is maintained by retaining the OE intercooler track. The removal of the vehicle AGS (Active Grill Shutter) is required for the installation of this product. Each intercooler is powder coated in black or silver to ensure years of corrosion free service.

Quality product, helpful staff. June 23, 2017
Reviewer: dave from MI United States  
A very well built product that is actually designed to fit in our cars. I liked the fact that this unit actually mounts to the radiator support utilizing brackets. Other units rely on mounting the IC to 2 plastic tabs. My feelings were that I didn't trust that a +20 lb. IC would be secure riding on those tabs. Especially bouncing around on horrible Michigan roads. It takes a bit more work to install, but I feel more confident in it's fitment. I have a '16 FoST and the directions are written for the '13-'14 Euro models. There are a few slight differences, nothing that wasn't remedied by a quick call to Mountune. The techs were prompt in response, and very helpful. FWIW, just bend the drivers side horn bracket, no need to try and mount it on the other side. Unit performs as advertised. 4 stars only due to the price point, but the stability of mounting was worth it for me.

Great product, missing instructions. December 12, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The quality of the intercooler is excellent.  Fit and finish is above what I have seen from numerous other tuners.  Although this is my first performance upgrade for my 16' ST2, I can already tell a difference the in consistency of the power delivery.   The only part lacking was the instructions.  I was missing any info on how to install the brackets on the intercooler, and the supplied instructions for the re-positioning of the horns was vague, at best.  Luckily, those issues were resolved with one quick phone call.  Spoke with Neil, who patiently helped me over the phone for over 30 minutes.  Great customer service, great product.  I will be buying more products from Mountune.

THE ideal intercooler for the track day enthusiast November 4, 2016
Reviewer: Deesiel678 from Atlanta, GA United States  
While there are other FMICs on the market that perform better from a charged air temp perspective, this one provides improvement in an area that other ones neglect. With its thoughtful design, this one improves air flow to the radiator, thus helping maintain lower ECTs over the duration of a session.
I took my car to the track before and after this upgrade. Only change was the FMIC.
85*f both days
B: Max CAT over Amb: +80*f Max ECT: 230*f
A: Max CAT over Amb: +30*f Max ECT: 215*f
Could another FMIC have done a better job of controlling CATs? Sure, but based on the experiences documented in the forums, ECTs would have likely been the same or worse. There are several reports of ST owners causing their cars to enter limp mode at the track (triggered by high ECT) with the stock FMIC and many aftermarket ones. Another 15* improvement in CATs adds no value if high ECTs are causing the car to enter limp mode.
If you intend to track your ST often, I encourage you to consider this FMIC.

Perfect June 2, 2016
Reviewer: Thomas Rossland from Drammen, Buskerud Norway  
Perfect fit intercooler with no drilling or cutting.

The installation manual should be updated for the facelift version of the Focus ST though. More detailed information about the brackets spacers etc would been nice.

But, if you are a mechanic, this will fall into place naturally :)

Kinda miss the air guidance on the intercooler wich is shown in some pictures for the 2013-2014 model, so im really curious if this will be available for the 2015.

Blows my mind, instructions aren't clear May 2, 2016
Reviewer: Trevor Brown from Corona, CA United States  
After hours of deciphering the vague instructions and sifting through the 2013-2014 parts and steps on my 2015, we were finally able to install the product. Significant increase in smooth-delivering power! Compared to alternatives I have tested, the Mountune weld quality and integration into the factory design is bar none.
