370bhp in 1.5 Hours !

Mountune has introduced a simple, 1.5 installation time kit that will boost your Focus RS up to 370bhp and 376lb-ft of torque.

The kit consists of a high performance air filter, bespoke alloy crossover duct with high-performance silicone hoses, an upgraded air re-circulation valve, and revised software tuning for the ECU so everything plays nicely with each other.

Best part about this ? It only costs £899.

These upgrades will bump your 0-62mph time up by two-tenths, translating that to 4.5 seconds.

Looks like this is the competitive edge the Focus RS needs to get a bit closer to the AMG A45 ?

*This kit is fully approved by Ford Performance as they have a history of working with Mountune. The parts can even be installed by Mountune-approved Ford dealerships

Had a few concerns about the hp boost until I saw the last bit where the kit is approved by Ford Performance. I recall reading that the RS was already tuned close to its limits. Hope this doesn't void the factory warranty.

Good point, it's worth checking with the Ford dealer first. Also the Mountune warranty is for 60k miles, makes the extended Ford 100k miles warranty pointless.

Not really, I assume the Mountune warranty only covers their kit and the Ford 100k miles warranty should cover everything else.

I think that the battle you have with Ford if something in the transmission failed would be epic. The way these things go you would probably have to have a legal battle with Ford before they would repair the part.

BTW. I checked with the insurance people and they said any increase in power from standard would double your insurance costs.

Double you're insurance costs ?! That's drastic !

But this kit, when installed by the Mountune-approved Ford dealership, does get covered under warranty still.

Good thing the Focus RS already comes with so much power because there is no way i'm willing to double my insurance for a few more ponies. In 2-3 years, the additional insurance cost could buy me a new car...
