The Stage 1 package focuses on exhaust upgrades and electronic engine management, which together promise to bump the power output from 200 to 230 horsepower.
The components include a stainless-steel free-flow sports exhaust system co-developed with Nameless Performance, a combined over-pipe/front-pipe with an integrated spherical resonator, a manifold header, and an ECU calibration kit and calibration file programmed specifically for the whole setup.
The announcement may be slightly disappointing for owners waiting for a Cosworth-developed forced induction system, however the tuner is presumably working on such upgrades for the Stage 2 and Stage 3 packages. The exhaust system is viewed as a necessary element for the higher stages, which will bring “fully validated” 325 horsepower and eventually a 380-pony race-track configuration.
“Each successive upgrade Stage builds upon and utilizes components in the previous Stage making this approach unique in the Aftermarket,” Cosworth notes. “This staged approach allows customers an affordable path to upgrade their vehicles.”
The company has not yet announced retail prices for the Stage 1 components. The second and third stages are expected to be available this summer.
