Mountune Engine Upgrade Boosts Ford Focus RS Power to 370 HP

If you live in Europe

The 2016 Ford Focus RS already has a big horsepower and torque lead over its competitors, but for European owners that want a little more out of their all-wheel-drive hot hatch there's the Ford Performance by Mountune upgrade. That OEM-sanctioned enhancement raises peak power using overboost to 370 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 20 hp and 26 lb-ft over the stock turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4.

Ford Performance worked with U.K.-based tuner Mountune, the company behind the upgrades for the Focus ST, to develop the Focus RS power package. The dealer-installed kit consists of a reprogrammed ECU, high-performance air filter, upgraded air recirculation valve, and an alloy crossover duct with silicone hoses. The overboost function is available for 12 seconds at a time, which is more than enough to get a Mountune-modified Focus RS to 62 mph. Ford estimates that will take 4.5 seconds. Top speed is unchanged at 165 mph.

The package is priced at 899 (roughly $1,175) for U.K. customers, and will be available in select European markets. The upgrade can be installed by any Mountune-appointed Ford dealer in about an hour and a half. The package does not void the vehicle warranty.

Mountune already offers a variety of performance parts for the Focus RS independent from Ford on its website. Right now, the Ford Performance by Mountune upgrade is only available in Europe, but Mountune president Ken Anderson told us in an email that a U.S. version is in the works.

"There are plans to introduce a Ford Performance upgrade for the Focus RS in the USA," Anderson said. "Final details and launch date have yet to be determined pending various legislative and regional test requirements."
