A little bit of background on the focus st head studs. The factory uses a 1/2” wrench to tighten the head bolts, but that is not enough for hard use when you are running high boost or making more power than stock. You need to torque these down properly so they don’t slip out of place and cause major damage to your motor and possibly even kill someone.
When you buy new head studs they will come with a torque spec in the package, you need to follow this spec exactly! Failure to do so could result in severe engine damage and possibly even death!
The following video shows how I torqued my head studs down on my 2012 Focus ST:
Focus st torque specs
The Ford Focus ST is a hot hatch, with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 247 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This high-performance hatchback has been on sale since 2014, but it’s only available as a five-door model with a manual transmission.
The Focus ST comes standard with an electronic limited-slip differential and an advanced stability control system that can tailor the car’s handling characteristics to suit your driving style. The Performance Pack adds 19-inch wheels, larger brakes, more aggressive suspension tuning and a functional hood scoop.
The Focus ST features Recaro seats as standard, along with numerous interior trim upgrades. The optional Recaro package includes heated front seats, leather upholstery and navigation as well as keyless entry with push-button start and remote start capability.
Standard equipment includes cloth upholstery; power windows, door locks and mirrors; a tilt/telescopic steering wheel; cruise control; keyless entry; rearview camera; Bluetooth connectivity; SiriusXM satellite radio; USB port; heated front seats; dual-zone automatic climate control; blind spot monitoring (BLIS) with cross traffic alert system (CTAS); power driver’s seat with memory function
2002 Ford focus 2.0 head bolt torque specs
If you’re looking to replace the head bolts on your 1999-2002 Ford Focus 2.0, this article will help you find them and give you the torque specs for each one of them.
The head gasket is one of the most important parts of an engine because it seals the combustion chamber from the cooling system and prevents oil from leaking into the cylinders. If it fails, then coolant can leak into the combustion chamber and cause your engine to overheat. Oil can also leak into the combustion chamber and cause excessive carbon build-up which leads to premature wear in your engine components.
In this post we’ll show you where to find all of the head bolts on a 1999-2002 Ford Focus 2.0 and how much torque they require when reinstalling them after servicing your vehicle’s cooling system or replacing your head gasket.
2.0 ecoboost head bolt torque specs
The 2.0 Ecoboost is a great engine, especially if you’re looking for a fun daily driver. The only problem is that it’s pretty easy to over tighten some of the bolts and end up stripping them out. I’ve broken off two bolts on my car trying to torque them down too much, so I know what I’m talking about here!
The good news is that it’s easy enough (and cheap) to go out and buy new ones if you do strip one out. The bad news is that this can be a very time consuming job if you don’t have the right tools or know what you’re doing.
So here are all the torque specs for the Ecoboost 2.0:
Head Bolts (3): 85 ft lbs (11 Nm)
Exhaust Manifold to Head Bolts (4): 65 ft lbs (8 Nm)
Intake Manifold Bolts to Head (2): 65 ft lbs (8 Nm)
Ford ecosport cylinder head bolt torque
The Ford EcoSport has seen several upgrades in the past few years. The model was first launched in India back in 2013, and since then it has undergone several changes. One of the most recent updates was a new engine option, which brought the EcoSport into a new generation of vehicles. The new engine is called Duratec 1.5L Ti-VCT (Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing) and it features both direct injection technology and turbocharging. This means that it produces more power than its predecessor and also delivers better fuel efficiency compared to its rivals. However, this new engine requires different torque values when you are replacing parts or performing maintenance on your vehicle.
If you own an EcoSport and need to replace parts such as gaskets or cylinder heads on your car, then it is important to know how much torque should be applied when tightening them back up again. This article will focus on Ford ecosport cylinder head bolt torque specifications so that you can make sure everything is done properly when working on your vehicle
ARP head studs
ARP Head Studs are the most advanced head studs ever designed. They provide the ultimate in clamping force and the highest possible torque settings. The ARP head studs are made from premium grade 8740 chrome moly steel, which has been heat treated and stress relieved for maximum strength. The threads are rolled after heat treating to eliminate distortion of the stud body. This eliminates stress risers and failure due to fatigue at high clamping loads
The ARP head studs are fully machined before being heat treated and ground to precise tolerances. All critical surfaces have been left uncoated to preserve their inherent lubricity, which reduces wear and extends part life
ARP has used its extensive knowledge of fastener technology and metallurgy to develop these innovative products that outperform all other types of fasteners currently on the market
