• Power boosted to 280kW/510Nm by Ford Performance
• Mountune upgrade sprints to 100km/h in 4.5sec
• Ford dealer can fit it, warranty unaffected
BRENTWOOD, England – Ford Focus RS customers, at least in the UK*, can now further enhance the performance of their car with an official Ford Performance by Mountune power upgrade.
The approved package, co-developed by Ford Performance and race engine and road car performance specialist Mountune, boosts peak power from the 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine by 43kW to and peak torque by 40Nm to 510Nm using overboost.*
The package, which costs £899 in the UK(about R16 000), takes the car to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds – faster than a Porsche 911 Carrera with manual transmission – thought that car costs more than double the Focus RS in the UK.
Top speed remains 265km/h.
Tyrone Johnson, vehicle engineering manager at Ford Performance, told The Corner through an international media release:
“Ford has a proud history of working with Mountune to unleash even more power from our hot hatches. Boosting power to 281kW launches the already class-leading Focus RS even further ahead of the field.”
The kit supplies a high-performance air filter, alloy crossover duct with high-performance silicone hoses, an upgraded air recirculation valve and revised software for the engine ECU. It does not affect the UK Ford warranty.
