Among the items the upgrade kit comprises of include a large alloy intercooler, a low-loss cast crossover duct and silicone hose, a high-flow dual entry air filter and a new engine mapping that has been calibrated to a more performance-driven one, to help that 2.0 litre EcoBoost turbocharged engine make haste.
