A few details have been shown from specialist tuner Mountune. A full performance package will be available soon ! Pretty excited to see what comes out of this !


The first details have been revealed for an even-hotter Ford Focus RS, with full Mountune Performance package due later

Specialist tuner Mountune has announced the first details of its ‘Phase 1’ upgrades for the new Ford Focus RS. A variety of parts are available to buy now, with an entire Mountune Performance package coming soon.
Initially, owners wanting more from their Focus RS will be offered a selection of ‘easy first-off modifications’ designed to
build
on the already potent hot hatchback. Mountune is claiming improvements in induction noise, as well as shorter gearshifts, reduced engine movement, and a boost in straight-line speed.

The Mountune store is currently listing upgraded hoses and roll restrictors, as well as lightweight 19-inch OZ Racing wheels and a high flow air filter. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and a Quaife Differential are also available. You can even buy a yellow gearknob, Mountune floor mats and ‘Dynamic Side Splash’ stickers for the sills.
The Ford Focus RS Mountune will eventually gain a full Mountune Performance upgrade kit – much like that available on Ford’s Fiesta and Focus ST models. David Moore, General Manager of Mountune Performance says the complete package is close to completion, but that sign off is “not yet complete”.

I like the sounds of shorter gear shifts and straight line performance improvements which will make this a really fun street toy, more than it is now. On the track it will make pulling out of turns really fun.

Once done these guys should do a comparison of a stock RS vs their version.

It should make this a much more fun vehicle to beat around the place. I think the only comparison we'll really see would be dyno charts as usual

True .. it'll definitely be noticeable though, really wake it up quite a bit for a more enthusiast spirited feel
