The Garrett PowerMax™ Stage 1 turbocharger upgrade for the 2013 – 2018 2.0L Ford EcoBoost engine platform is engineered to increase engine performance capability while maintaining OEM installation specifications. This direct drop-in turbocharger provides up to 16% more flow than OEM and will support up to 350 BHP* (260kW). Improvements in compressor efficiency and flow can be attributed to the 52mm fully-machined compressor wheel with advanced aero design. Inconel alloy turbine wheel and stainless steel turbine housings are rated for up to 950° C. This turbocharger kit comes fully assembled, calibrated, and is outline interchangeable with the OE hardware to ensure a perfect fit every time.
If you'd like to get as much power and control from this turbo as possible, we recommend using the Turbosmart actuator upgrade. This actuator is made for the Focus RS but is the correct unit for this Garrett Powermax upgrade. The Focus ST actuator WILL NOT fit. You must also use a new 90 degree air fitting on the top of the actuator instead of the straight fitting the actuator comes with.
NOTE: With the Focus ST, you can expect around 300whp on 93oct, and around 320whp on ethanol blend. The 350hp rating from Garrett is at the crank, not the wheels.
I daily my st and wanted a turbo but didn’t want a hassle. I installed it in my garage in about 3 hours. Bolts right up and Alan knows how to get good power out of these!!
