They say good things come in three’s and the latest review by Evo Magazine is no exception to that rule.

After receiving a noteworthy 5 stars for both our mk2 Focus RS MR375 kit, and more recently our mk7 Fiesta ST MP215, we’ve scored a hat-trick with a third impressive 5* review for our latest Mk7 Fiesta ST MR230 offering in the latest issue of the magazine.

After thrashing the car around various British B roads, the test team at Evo were blown away with the contrast between the standard 1.6-litre Ford favourite and the mountune version, and were in awe of both the strength and relentlessness of the upgraded engine.

The MR230 power upgrade kit, which was released in 2015, comprises of a selection of mountune performance parts including a custom aluminium high-flow airbox, high–flow panel air filter, charge pipe, intercooler and 3” downpipe with a 200 cell sports catalyst with 2.5” cat-back exhaust system.

EVO says:
"you can march along on a wave of torque when buzzing Caymans and M3s can wait another day."

"The MR230 works across all levels, retaining the usability of the standard car."

"the Fiesta will fly along at a sports car-baiting pace."

The full MR230 upgrade kit is priced from £2295 inc. VAT, or if you already have the MP215 kit, from £1995 inc. VAT as an upgrade. Also available as an mTune only upgrade for those with all required hardware already. Available via www.mountunestore.com, or via any EU-based mountune Ford Pro-Dealer.

Also available in the USA for $2949 from www.mountuneusa.com
