Dreamscience New Stage 4 has arrived for the Focus ST225¬†
Turbo¬†X Upgrade¬†Package¬†Launched for Focus ST225...¬†(350Bhp & 380FtLb)
(Includes, New AET-DS-K06 Turbo, RS Mk2 440cc Injectors, RS Mk2 Oil Cooler & Turbo X re-map)
Introducing Dreamscience‚Äôs latest calibration for our stage 4 upgrade. The Turbo X¬†map is our most powerful to date and incorporates over 5 years of development and extensive¬†testing. Combined with our Stage 4 upgrade kit, the¬†Turbo X map¬†is truly in a league of its own, delivering a reliable 350 Bhp and 380Ftlb of torque with a flat WRC style torque curve, this map truly is the ultimate experience for the ST225. As per the Performance Ford front cover feature November 2011¬† our test car out performed Stage 3 RS Mk2‚Äôs to 60 and to 100 mph with GPS timing proving the mighty punch Turbo X really¬†delivers.
This map is ONLY calibrated for use with the DS-AET-K06 Hybrid turbo, RS MK2 440cc Injectors and Oil cooler. Customers with existing / similar hybrid turbo upgrades can use this tune file but must ensure they have a Forge actuator (Blue spring) and Forge internal re-circ (Yellow spring) set up on their turbo for correct operation.
(Support for the older Stratagem will be added soon)
As can be seen from the Stage 4 Turbo X graph we have commanded a torque curve which does not give an uncontrolled boost spike in the low revs, (This protects the drive train and helps to maintain the clutch). Once 3500rpm is achieved we introduce more boost / power and build the torque curve up again to 380 / 385Ftlb at 4500rpm. The massive achievement here is the ability to hold above 305 Ftlb from 2500rpm to 6000rpm making the stage 4 map very hard to keep up with on the road. The fuel is set at a commanded 11.5 to 1 Air to fuel ratio¬†which is¬†deliberately on the rich side, this helps to keep the cylinders cool and allows the engine to run high power levels with higher safety. The Bhp on this graph maxes at 347Bhp and climbs steadily all the way up the rev range, on the road with better cooling this figure will be evn higher.
From doing some economy testing on the road the stage 4 set up can still achieve 30 to 35mpg on the cruise at 70 to 75Mph so perfectly acceptable as an every day drive and as described by¬†the Performance Ford feature, this car drives like it has just rolled out of the factory.¬†
Development of the new AET-DreamScience-K06 Hybrid Turbo
Dreamscience Automotive Ltd have spent the last 12 months developing the new K06 Turbo upgrade, manufactured to our specification by AET Turbos. This turbo is based on the original K04 turbo found on the Focus¬†ST225 but we have made several upgrades and improvements to help make this new system more powerful, efficient and capable of producing the required power outputs for our stage 4 kit. This new AET-DS-K06 Turbo includes
‚ÄĘ K04/06 hybrid turbo
‚ÄĘ 35Lb/min Billet compressor wheel with extended tip technology
‚ÄĘ CNC re-profiled compressor cover
‚ÄĘ Ported compressor cover inlet
‚ÄĘ AET bespoke motorsport 6 pad thrust bearing assembly
‚ÄĘ Total seal turbine piston ring seal for low back pressure exhaust systems
‚ÄĘ Modified Seal plate to match hi-flow compressor wheel
‚ÄĘ Cut back turbine exducer blades for better flow @ high RPM ranges
‚ÄĘ Forge T2 actuator with blue spring
‚ÄĘ Forge recirc valve with yellow spring
‚ÄĘ Ported inlet manifold matched to manifold gasket
‚ÄĘ Enlarged and ported wastegate
‚ÄĘ Core assembly VSR balanced to motorsport specifications
‚ÄĘ Fully blue printed to motorsport specs
Here is a small extract from the current issue of Performance Ford where Dreamscience were given¬†the full front cover to demonstrate the true might of our new Turbo X stage 4 upgrade
"As you can see from the results table, we weren‚Äôt exaggerating when we said that thisST was able to keep pace with a Conti GT up to a ton! A best time of 5.5-seconds to 60mph was impressive enough, but 12-secs to 100mph was mighty and is certainly on a par to the Mountune MP350 we tested back in the June 2010 issue (0-60 in 5.5-secs, 0-100 in 12.5-secs) and BBR‚Äôs RS380 Mk2 RS that we timed in the November 2010 issue (0-60 in 5.7, 0-100 in12.3-secs)."
