Any Stage 3 upgrades known yet? COBB said they aren't doing it yet.

I put the COBB Stage 3 on my Focus ST and that turned it into a beast. We have the new 2020 ST Explorer and am hoping somebody comes out with a full kit to upgrade it soon.

From the research and reading that I have seen both on this forum and off, it is probably held back by fueling issues, the fuel pump and injectors seem to be barely adequate for the vehicle in its stock form. Those things would easily add $1000-$1600 to the price of a stage 3 performance kit. I could be wrong and insert my foot into my mouth.

i’m not mad at the modest performance of the explorer.. i just wish it would make some real noise.. that piped in noise is awful.. i would enjoy a solid intake, catless pipes, and a quality tune that would make this truck just all around a better experience

I've been looking at the Borla exhaust systems, that might make it meaner sounding for sure, not sure what the gains would be for performance. The modifications on the chip and mapping show running E85 will produce over 500 horsepower, but not sure if you have to change the maps when you run lower grade gas in the thing or how that all works, thus I wanted an 89 octane Stage III system with better pipes.

I too am looking forward to any Stages available in the Explorer ST. My focus was only up to Stage 2 but it was fun adding modifications to make it more torque oriented. Didn’t really start loving the Focus ST until I started modifying the vehicle. Probably one of the many reasons why I bought another ST.
