yeah, its happy dance time.
LOL. Yup. But even better when there's a "confirmed" or "official" in the article.Thats right, we knew all along. Remember back in march when ford ireland made an accident http://www.focusrsclub.com/forum/16...-rating-accidentally-leaked-ford-ireland.html
The 30th Ford RS model already packs more power and torque than the new Honda Civic Type R (306 hp, 295 lb-ft), Volkswagen Golf R (292 hp, 280 lb-ft), Subaru WRX STI (305 hp, 290 lb-ft) or the Nürburgring-conquering Renault Mégane 275 Trophy-R (271 hp, 266 lb-ft) and Seat Leon Cupra (276 hp, 258 lb-ft). It even respectably holds its own against the more upscale BMW M235i (320 hp, 330 lb-ft), Mercedes A45/CLA45 AMG (355 hp, 332 lb-ft), and Audi RS3 (362 hp, 343 lb-ft).
I wonder if it actually increases the boost Psi? How does it actually work?More news just released and posted on Jalopnik: The RS has an OverBoost feature that allows the car to produce 347trq. Nuts. Just nuts.
So what will that feel like when driving? Some more acceleration when it is engaged?More news just released and posted on Jalopnik: The RS has an OverBoost feature that allows the car to produce 347trq. Nuts. Just nuts.
Your ST vehicle offers a period of additional torque delivery referred to as overboost or overtorque. This feature of the engine calibration broadens the RPM range of the peak torque curve. This gives improved performance during maneuvers such as passing and vehicle launch.
Note: The overboost feature controls a variety of engine parameters to deliver additional torque. Overboost is built into the engine calibration on your ST vehicle and no action is required by the driver to engage.
Would have been great if there was a dynochart to go with that for an accurate view of what goes on.Here's how it was explained for the Focus ST:
I just don't like that they're quoting TQ on overboost. It's not doing that all the time...Ford's come out with a new number and the Focus RS now claims to have 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
