The Focus RS is by no means slow with a whopping 350 but, some of you may crave a bit more power and that’s where Mountune comes in.
Having already worked their magic on both the Ford Fiesta ST and Focus ST, the tuning company has moved onto the Focus RS and last week, Mountune released the first phase of focus RS upgrades. Even before your RS arrives, you can start shopping on their site.
Mountune focused on improving induction noise and performance with a wide selection of upgrades; new silicone boost hose, high-flow induction hose, high-flow air filter, roll restrictor, quick-shift kit, Quaife differential and OZ Leggera alloys. They even have littles odds and ends to personalize both the interior and exterior of the RS. Maybe a new gearknob will tickle your fancy or a set of dynamic side splash graphics. This is just Phase 1 so more products are on the way.
Unfortunately, even though the parts have been extensively tested on Nürburgring, the power figures and stats cannot be released until after the final sign-off. What they can share with us on their blog is that “the power and torque improvements are very noticeable, as is the reduction in 0-60mph time and other performance attributes.”
While you’re waiting for the final numbers, you can catch a glimpse of their Focus RS along with shots of the available parts in this video.
