It’s official! The Focus RS is getting a power upgrade.

The 4,600 customers who have already ordered a Ford Focus RS can now further enhance the performance of the hot hatch, with the official Mountune power upgrade package.

Co-developed by Ford Performance and Mountune, the approved upgrade boosts peak power from the 2.3‑litre EcoBoost engine by 25 PS to 375 PS and peak torque by 40 Nm to 510 Nm using overboost.

The power boost will set owners back £899 but will slash the 0-60mph time to just 4.5 seconds. Enough to upset a number of super car owners.

Tyrone Johnson, vehicle engineering manager at Ford Performance, said:  “Ford has a proud history of working with Mountune to unleash even more power from our hot hatchbacks for dedicated performance enthusiasts.”

The kit consists of a high-performance air filter, bespoke alloy crossover duct with high-performance silicone hoses, an upgraded air re-circulation valve and revised software tuning for the engine ECU.

Any Mountune-appointed Ford dealer will be able to fit the upgrade in 1.5 hours and it is fully compatible with the Ford warranty, meaning Mountune Focus RS vehicles continue to be covered against mechanical failure.
