COBB Front and Rear Sway Bars: Ford Mustang Ecoboost

The COBB Anti-Sway Bar Kit for the 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost is one of the most effective ways to improve handling without negatively affecting ride quality or NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness). The perfectly balanced kit has a 35mm adjustable front bar and a 25mm adjustable rear bar to resist body-roll, sharpen turn-in response, and reduce understeer. The CNC bent anti-swaybar kit includes stiffer polyurethane bushings for instant suspension response, and all are direct factory replacements to ensure perfect OEM-like fitment without compromising performance. The COBB Tuning Anti-Sway Bar Kit is compatible with stock and most aftermarket end links.

mountune Low Restriction Intake: 2013-2015 Ford Focus ST

mountune Low Restriction Intake: 2013-2015 Ford Focus ST

The mountune High Performance Induction kit for the 2013-2015 Focus ST includes everything you need to optimize the intake tract on your MK3 Focus ST. The kit consists of a cast aluminum low restriction crossover duct available in a natural silver or painted black finish (with a detailed fin and logo), an exclusive mountune air filter, mountune silicone hose and clamps.

Features

· Cast aluminum construction
· mountune High Flow Air filter with dual inlet.
· mountune Silicone coupling hose
· Installation is simple and only requires simple hand tools

Technical Information

Comprehensive evaluation of the OE Focus ST intake system revealed the primary restriction as the OE plastic crossover pipe as well as the OE air filter. mountune engineers have designed a revised replacement crossover pipe with smooth air flow characteristics and no internal obstructions to improve intake air flow directly to the turbocharger. Coupled with a uniquely designed mountune air filter with with dual inlet, the mountune High Performance Induction kit will provide increased air flow, improved engine response, and power. As there is no performance benefit and to help maintain the original vehicle’s NVH quality, mountune has elected to retain the OE coupling hoses and connectors when possible.

Application: 2013-2015 Ford Focus ST

AEM Electronics Infinity Support: Ford 2V, 3V, 4V Modular Race Engines

AEM Electronics Infinity Support: Ford 2V, 3V, 4V Modular Race Engines

The AEM Electronics Infinity ECU is now available as a Supported Application for Ford 4.6L & 5.4L SOHC 2V/3V and DOHC 4V Modular race engines utilizing the OEM crank and cam timing patterns found in the Mustang, F150, Expedition, Lincoln Navigator and many other platforms

The Infinity supports the variable cam timing (VCT) on the 3V modular engine, and supports Drive-by-Wire (DBW) on engines equipped with OEM “fly-by-wire” throttle bodies.

Plug & Pin Kits, Core Plug & Play Engine Harnesses and flying-lead Universal Wiring Harnesses are available for adapting the Infinity ECU onto Ford modular race engines. Core Plug & Play Engine Harnesses simplify installation by letting users quickly create plug & play engine harness for their vehicle by connecting application specific sub harnesses for cam/crank, injectors, ignition and idle control via DTM connectors.

The Infinity ECU is a complete standalone programmable ECU that includes multiple boost control strategies, programmable nitrous control, programmable variable valve cam timing control, on-the-fly map switching, programmable traction control, launch control, flex fuel and multi fuel capability. It utilizes airflow (VE) based tuning, has up to 64GB data logging capacity and can transfer data at up to 480Mb/second. Its enclosure is sealed and has sealed IP67-rated comms connectors.

Infinity ECU Features:

– Airflow model based (VE) tuning
– ECU Set Up Wizard simplifies start up
– Flex fuel compatible
– Multi fuel capable
– Programmable drive by wire
– Programmable variable valve control
– Multiple programmable boost control strategies
– Programmable nitrous control
– On-the-Fly map switching
– Dual internal Lambda controllers
– Dual knock sensing circuits
– Integrated engine protection strategies
– Data logging up to 64GB
– Outputs to 3rd party dashes and data loggers
– Industry leading data transfer speed (up to 480Mb/sec)
– Sealed enclosure and IP67 rated comms ports

The Infinity ECU makes state-of-the-art ECU technology affordable for both professional teams and amateur racers. Built around a latest-generation 32 bit floating point 200MHz automotive processor and Real Time Operating System (RTOS), the Infinity is capable of processing 400 MIPS (millions of instructions per second). The Infinity ECU currently has the fastest processing speed of any aftermarket Motorsports ECU available. This processing speed combined with a RTOS provides more accurate ignition timing for increased power, more responsiveness to truly custom tailor the driving experience to the driver, allows the Infinity to perform more computational features without a sacrifice in processing performance, and enables tuning of features and sub strategies without affecting other features and sub strategies. It allows you to do more, faster, in a more stable programming environment.
