I totally agree. When I had the engine of my Cosworth 4x4 rebuilt at 95k miles they were very helpful. They even provided the original build tolerances and test figures on the engine when it was supplied to Ford. First class service.

That's one thing I found about American car dealers. It also depends on who you deal with since some guys go out of their way to get you information which through some people would just be impossible.

That's also true of the UK Ford dealers, if you get the right Service Manager and a good technician doing the servicing etc. you are on to a winning combination. I did arrange with the garage before I ordered my RS that only one technician would carry out work on the vehicle.

Quite a few reputable tuners who now have their RS's are in the midst of R&D for a big turbo upgrade...but nothing is out to my knowledge. I expect a few to be out early 2017 though.

There's tons of companies working on new kits for the RS, time will tell which ones will produce the best results.

I'm sure we will see an influx of new products in 2017

I would say around christmas time we should see somethings with "pre-order sale" prices or introductory prices.

The primary reason why I like to sit out and see what happens since if you already own one, the wait is painful. 6-8 months go by and getting in then is much more rewarding to me!

Quite a few companies are developing "big turbo" kits for the RS. There's a company in MN who recently broke the 500 whp mark w/ the RS with their Stage 1 turbo kit.


Another tuner in MN has a RS running 11.8 in the 1/4 mile on the stock turbo.


Once the big turbo kits are released - drivers will need to take a serious look at clutch upgrades, potential quaife, upgrade fuel pumps, etc. . .


I'm still waiting for someone to unlock Pandora's box that we call the RDU.

CJ Ponyparts (Allentown Blvd., Harrisburg, PA)has an upgrade turbo kit for RS---the new turbo will support up to 520 hp! (IF you have all the correct other ancillary components!) I'm not so sure adding more HP is a great idea, though---just got a factory recall notice that I may need a new head gasket or new head in total. Car has 2300 miles on it, 2017, new Oct. 3rd! Early reports had RS engines "grenading" so I'm just guessing that they are near the top of their design hp(?) Interestingly, BMW got 800 hp from a 1.5 L engine in the 1970s for F1, and they also got 1200 hp from that same blown mill for qualifying---but it would ONLY hold together for those qualifying laps. Something tells me that to get that much power, the block and EVERY component must be built for it!
