45HP FACTORY ENGINE UPGRADE FOR FORD FOCUS RS

With all 101 Ford Focus RS500 models snapped up by UK Ford fans within days of its launch, Ford GB has responded to the intense customer demand with an officially approved Focus RS performance upgrade kit.

Ford Focus RS owners can now give their 'regular' 305hp Focus an extra 45hp and 15 lb/ft of torque. This allows those who could not secure one of Ford's ultra-limited edition, matte black RS500s to upgrade their latest-generation RS to match the power - if not the exclusivity - of Ford's fastest-ever Focus road car. Developed by Ford Team RS, in partnership with Mountune Performance (MP) and offering similar performance to the RS500, the MP350 RS upgrade will be launched through selected Ford dealers in the UK.

Comprising a larger intercooler and air box, larger diameter exhaust downpipe and a higher-capacity fuel pump, along with uprated software calibration, it remains the only approved Focus RS upgrade package.

Mark Simpson, Ford Britain marketing director, said: "Focus RS500 raised the bar in every way - it was the fastest-selling model in Ford's UK history, with five times more customers looking for cars than we could provide. The MP350 kit has been developed to meet some of this additional demand and allow enthusiasts with standard cars to enjoy even greater performance, without endangering their warranty. If you couldn't get an RS500, which sold out within seven days, this is the next best thing."
