Mountune boosts the Ford Focus RS
Mountune Performance has released a high-end performance upgrade for the 305-horsepowered Ford Focus RS. Officially approved and signed by Ford, the new high-performance upgrade punches the Focus' output figures to the stunning 350 horsepower and 460 Nm of maximum torque.
The all-new Mountune MP350 power kit is offered only via selected network of Ford dealers, initially in the UK, with a European roll-out scheduled to follow. Equipped with the package, the Focus RS boasts similar values to the recently announced, limited-edition Focus RS500 model.
Matthias Tonn, Focus RS500 Chief Programme Engineer shares…"Ford's relationship with Mountune has produced a series of dynamic performance upgrade packages for Ford models like the Focus ST and new Fiesta, and we are confident that the Focus RS package will prove equally successful. While the limited edition RS500 we are unveiling at the Leipzig Show today will remain the ultimate Focus RS, this upgrade provides existing customers with the attractive Ford-approved performance enhancement option that many RS owners have been asking for."
The ride's upgraded power rates are achieved through a larger intercooler, larger air filter box, larger diameter exhaust downpipe and an uprated fuel pump, along with an updated software calibration.
