Just wondering if the Focus ST engine performance, tuning, exhaust related upgrades, etc could be used in the Focus RS.

It's a different engine. Exhaust should work, maybe a headers back setup will work, anything else further back from headers should work.

Pipe diameter might be different and if that's the case you can always look into piecing one together for cheaper than starting with an ST intake. But I rather wait for something RS-specific to show up on the market.

Have you seen the COBB stage 3 ecoboost? MEANNN


Yes - I live near Portland, OR where Cobb Surgeline is located. I know the manager there and I was told they have a lot of great modifications planned for the RS. I had them perform a lot of work on my old STI and plan on them doing some mods on my RS.


Their access port is a great product

What are the possibilities in terms of performance if you are able to invest in some of those Mustang engine tuning options?
The same results those mustangs got. You'll want to look into the various mods available and what performance numbers were produced from it.

Will you lend them your Focus RS if they need a tester car?


I assume you were directing this to me.


Depends on whether I have access to another car while they have mine. I was planning on selling the car I have now when the RS arrives. I would not want to be without a car for too long.

Cobb has there own RS on order so they won't be needing anyone else's car to tinker on
