If you own a Ford Focus RS and you want it to keep up with supercars in a straight line, then you might want to check out these two new power upgrade packages from Mountune.
Dubbed the M450 and M520, both replace the factory turbocharger with a specifically engineered BorgWarner EFR Series item that dramatically increases peak power and torque figures. The tuner claims that the mods are perfect for customers already running the M400R or M400X packages.
The M450 increases power output to 450 PS (444 HP) and 580 Nm (427 lb-ft) of torque. Furthermore, customers also get the Mountune Ni-resist Cast Turbo Adapter, V-band high flow sports cat and downpipe, Turbocharger Gasket Set, 5-Ply Compressor Outlet/Inlet Silicone Elbow and Stainless Steel Hose Clamp Set.
“We have worked hard to develop upgrades that build on the success of the m400X and m400R kits,” said Mountune exec, Alec Pell-Johnson. “With the very latest BorgWarner turbocharger platform, both upgrades deliver exceptional levels of power and torque, turning the RS into something quite remarkable. After the positive initial feedback we received from the official unveiling of the kits at Ford Fair, we can’t wait to start fitting them to our customers’ cars.”
As for the M520 package, it includes an XtremeDi uprated Di fuel pump and revised/uprated camshafts and valve train, which together with the revised ECU and turbo will give you 520 PS (512 HP) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Fitting your Focus RS with the M450 pack means spending £2,950 ($3,574), while the M520 will set you back £5,975 ($7,240).
