Ford Focus RS owners can now further enhance the performance of the hot hatch with an official power upgrade package, co-developed between the Blue Oval’s Performance division and Mountune.
Comprising of a high-performance air filter, upgraded air re-circulation valve, alloy crossover duct with high-performance silicone hoses and remapped ECU, Mountune’s new performance upgrade squeezes an additional 25 PS (25 HP) and 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) of torque from the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, bringing the total output up to 375 PS (370 HP) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.
This translates into an improved naught to sixty two mile (100 km/h) sprint time by 0.2 seconds (4.5 seconds) over the standard super hot-hatch, making the Focus RS faster than a Porsche 911 Carrera with a manual transmission, while top speed remains at 165 mph (266 km/h).
“Ford has a proud history of working with Mountune to unleash even more power from our hot hatchbacks for dedicated performance enthusiasts. Boosting power to 375 PS launches the already class-leading Focus RS even further ahead of the field“, said Ford Performance vehicle engineering Manager Tyrone Johnson.
Fully compatible with the automaker’s warranty and priced at £899 ($1,190) in the United Kingdom, the power upgrade requires 1.5 hours of work to be installed and it can be fitted at any Mountune-appointed Ford dealer.
