Ever since the 2016 Ford Focus RS hot hatch was launched, tuning firm Mountune has been hard at work putting together performance upgrades to boost engine output, handling, and other performance characteristics. Now, the company’s latest kit for the Ford Performance pocket rocket is here, and it’s good for about an extra 25 horsepower and about 30 lb-ft of torque on top of some already-strong numbers.
The new Mountune kit is enough to bring peak output up to 375 horsepower (370 BHP) and 376 lb-ft on the European-spec Focus RS.
Sadly, the words “European-spec” are key here; according to Autoblog, the kit isn’t yet available in the United States. “Final details and launch date have yet to be determined pending various legislative and regional test requirements,” Mountune USA President Ken Anderson told the website via email. This, of course, means that the kit is on its way to the U-S-of-A… eventually.
Mountune’s new Ford Focus RS power upgrade kit consists of a high-flow induction kit, a new blow-off valve, an ECU calibration, and a special “Mountune” badge. The resulting bump to torque and horsepower makes for a 4.5-second 0-to-60 time – 0.2 seconds quicker than stock. The kit can be installed by any Mountune-certified Ford dealer, the process taking about an hour-and-a-half, and it’s covered by warranty.
As we’ve said, American Focus RS owners will have to wait a while for the kit to come stateside. In the meantime, Mountune USA offers plenty of other great upgrade options for the new hot hatch, which can be perused on the company’s online store.
