MSD e-Tune - Ford Focus ST (2.0 Ecoboost.)
The MSD E-Tune
A bespoke product for those customers who already own the awesome COBB Accessport V3, we supply our renowned MSD calibrations as a stand alone purchase via e-mail for self installation onto your vehicle which we can then tune remotely via datalogging should you wish.
These tunes do not use the COBB OTS calibrations as a base. Being an Ecoboost specialist since Ford first launched the platform, we ported our own MSD base strategies over to the COBB platform in order to utilise their enhanced features and the awesome Accessport. All our E-Tunes are based on our own tried and tested strategies and will drive identically to our non COBB platform tunes.

MSD280. (465NM / 280PS)
This calibration works perfectly on a totally standard car and lifts the power restrictions from within the ECU, further enhancing the power output by 120NM and 30PS to 465NM and 280PS.
The factory rev limit and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained, whilst the relevant fuel, spark and load tables are further optimised to achieve this new power output.
Additional hardware needed:
MSD300. (500+NM / 300 PS)
This is as far as the standard turbo will allow you to go. Lifting the power up even further from our MSD 280 spec to new figures of around 500NM and 300PS.
The factory rev limit and all the temperature, pressure and load protection features of the management system are still retained, whilst the relevant fuel, spark and load tables are further optimised to achieve this new power output.
This calibration needs some airflow upgrades and its final power output will be determined by the condition of your factory engine and turbocharger as this tune takes the factory airflow capabilities to the limit...
- Denso ITV-22 or NGK LTR7IX-11 Spark Plug
A firm favourite... This feature gives you the above 3 different power levels available at any one time. Imagine having MSD 250 (STD Power with enhanced MSD driveability and all our features), MSD 280 and MSD 300, all switchable from the cruise control buttons, even with the engine running. Imagine also being able to dictate which of those power levels the vehicle loaded up with when you turn it on… Well you can...(Anti-Theft and Valet modes are now also available in slots 4 and 5.)
MSD 250 (345NM / 250PS)
This is a calibration that mimics the vehicles standard power and torque but retains all the awesome COBB Firmware features and MSD's legendary driveability!. This was created specifically for use with MSD Multimaps to use in slot 1!
Additional hardware needed:
MSD 320 - MSD400+
For those looking for something a little more bespoke...
Further power is available for suitably equipped cars (Forged engine and GTX2867R for example). These tunes can be done remotely but are outside the scope of a simple webshop form.
Please visit the dedicated Focus ST tuning page of our website for more details.
Custom tuning for all, remotely!
Using the awesome data logging capabilities of the Accessport, we invite you to send us datalogs via E-mail so that we can custom tune your purchased calibration to better suit your own, individual vehicle. After log analysis, we will send you a further optimised tune that is based of feedback from your own vehicle. This feature comes standard with all our tunes for those owners who wish to get involved in some customisation but don't worry, you can enjoy the product forever without getting involved in custom tuning should you wish to.
All our calibrations come with full printed instructions further detailing the above features and how to do the datalogging for your custom tuning and the first couple of revisions are included in your purchase price. (We normally only need the two...)
Flat foot shifting:
Enabled on all our calibrations, this features allows the accelerator pedal to stay fully depressed while shifting gears. The use of the clutch pedal will still be necessary, but keeping the accelerator pedal fully depressed between shifts allows for the turbo to stay spooled between gears, so you can concentrate on the fastest gearshift and let MSD take care of the engine speed.
No hassle launch control:
No more entering menus in a hurry! With our calibrations the process of getting into launch mode is simply having the clutch pedal and accelerator pedal depressed fully. The vehicle should quickly raise engine speed to the determined RPM set in the calibration file. (Adjustable on request)
5-way launch control set-points:
This feature enables users to switch between 5 different launch control set points on the fly. You can use the factory cruise control system to switch between different set points.
Our calibrations usually have 5 set points enabled from 4500rpm in slot 1 to 5500rpm in slot 5. (Slot choice varies due to other features)
This feature enables users to perform a nice controlled burnout with a simple button press on the steering wheel. Just hit the button and mash your foot to the floor for an ECU controlled flat foot burnout.
COBB Traction control:
COBB Traction Control is a custom feature available only with the Accessport. It doesn’t involve any extra sensors, installation, or hard part changes. This makes it easy to improve road course or straight line track times on completely stock EcoBoosts, highly modified race cars, or any other supported Ford in between. Essentially, if your wheels are uncontrollably spinning at any time during any race, this feature can help, and when bought from MSD it has a few of our own enhancements added too.
