A leading Ford RS specialist in Britain, Graham Goode Racing in Leicester, England, announced the release of its RS 340 tuning package for the new Ford Focus RS.
Renowned for it's involvement with the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, both in the British Touring Car Championship during the '80/90s, as well as 500hp road-going versions, this new conversion requires no additional mechanical modifications. In fact, GGR's RS 340 performance upgrade is purely an engine management conversion, developed in conjunction with Superchips.
Consisting of an ECU upgrade, the conversion requires firmware modifications and software reprogramming with the Superchips Bluefin hand-held unit.
Bluefin enables customers to store their stock ECU map for future use and also enables GGR to conduct further ECU remapping if additional mechanical modifications are carried out at a later date.
Careful recalibration of the potent 300hp 2.5-liter Duratec turbo's engine management has delivered significant performance improvements from the Focus RS. In fact, maximum torque reaches a peak output of 397 lb-ft at 3100rpm, highlighting the flexibility of the package.
For total peace of mind, GGR's RS 340 upgrade is covered by a comprehensive 12 month/30,000 mile breakdown warranty. What's more, further performance enhancements, currently under development by GGR, will shortly be available.
