Hey again everyone,


We've been very busy the last few months here at COBB! Whether it's on the dyno developing calibrations, under the hood creating hard parts, or romping around the streets with Tanner Foust... We have been plugging away to bring you the best possible products for your Focus ST! I wanted to share with you some more of our findings and give you the release date schedules for the hard parts you all have been waiting for. Enjoy!

Looks like some great products!

I know it takes a while to get a C.A.R.B. certification for CA, do you plan to do this on the Cobb CAI for those looking to be smog legal in CA?

This is just awesome. I've never known of an aftermarket company to keep everyone in the loop to such a detailed extent!

Having said that, I'm excited for Feb. 28th lol. You've got a definite first-time customer here

Yes, I believe we are working on that type of package to make these parts 50 state approved! The good news is that our Stage2 package does not require the replacement of the downpipe thus avoiding a lot of your typical CARB certification issues!

Cheers,

Damn you guys are making it hard to keep this DD stock. :S


Has there been testing done at Cobb SoCal with the ST and our crappy 91?

I have been waiting months for these details! I am really stoked!

I noticed where they said that the hard parts increased the turbo noise. I'm curious how audible the BPV is with the stage 2 package. It is too damn quiet.

They also mentioned that the stage 2 doesn't have their downpipe. It is saved for stage 3 and above. Wonder why that is??

Our job here is to recommend to our customers what we believe is the best modification path for their vehicle.

With several of the other cars we support, Stage 2 indicates the use of a downpipe as it offers the next logical step in the mod path that offers the highest return on your purchase (that return being power!).

With the Focus ST, we've seen that the FMIC is a serious weak point in the system. By replacing the inefficient stock core with our high-quality bar and plate core, the decrease in charge air temps yield a huge bump in performance as compared to a downpipe for this vehicle. Thus, for this platform, Stage 2 includes an FMIC as it will yield the best results.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Makes sense. Well put!

So just to be clear... the Stage 2 package comes with the tune, FMIC, CAI and catback? Man, I really can't wait to hear that exhaust!

Also, do you have the exact horsepower/torque numbers?

That CAI is sexy.

Ok I'm stoked now! This is perfect timing because I've been waiting out winter before doing any mods. Real curious about springs and sway bars also.

The Stage2 package would consist of the COBB Accessport, COBB FMIC, COBB Intake, and COBB Cat-back exhaust. It would also be prudent to pickup the COBB RMM to help with the new power this package produces!

Here are the numbers as we tested on our Mustang MD500-SE dyno. They will of course vary by dyno and region, which is why we give percentage gains in our map notes and advertisements.

I have a few exhaust clips from earlier testing with the full turbo-back in another thread, I'll post them up here for you in a sec!

Edit:
Here is a quick clip I recorded back when we were dyno testing the full exhaust.


And one from in the car:


Thank you,
