"Utterly brilliant"

Written by Wednesday, 01 February 2017 15:30
YouTuber and supercar enthusiast, Shmee150 aka Tim Burton, who was blown away by the performance of his newly tuned Mk3 Focus RS, fitted at mountune HQ a few weeks ago, was left wanting more for his own car, particularly after driving our fully-loaded M380 version… but it was clear that our development Fiesta ST had also more than caught his eye, too.

Unsurprisingly, whilst with us most recently, Tim couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel of our MR265 to review, and despite the rain, gave the car a good run-in down the nearby Essex country lanes. “What a blast, this is ridiculous” he exclaimed as he got to grips with the car's “go-kart” feel.

Shmee noted that the Fiesta wanted to “dart down countryside lanes” and admired the MR265 upgrade kit with its hybrid turbocharger, calibration, large capacity intercooler and high-flow intake for its additional 30 percent performance increase over the standard car.

“I knew it was going to feel quick, but not this quick. What a barrel of laughs. Genuine hilarity. Brilliant, brilliant package – I am genuinely loving this,” he laughed.

Shmee told fans that for darting down country roads, “what else would you want to be in?” He added that the Fiesta had opened his eyes to what hot hatches are capable of, noting that: “It's not afraid of lighting up the tyres. It’s a 256bhp fun machine, it’s just entertaining to drive.”



Back at the workshop, Shmee had also opted for further upgrades to his RS, namely the mountune Axle-Back Exhaust system, now fully endorsed by Ford. Filming the process, he said he was surprised by the quick fitment turnaround and couldn't wait for the first start-up of the car once installed. “Oh goodness, that is raspier - I like that a lot - I am very very pleased about this”.

With unpredictable popping and banging as he drove away from the workshop, Shmee took his now noisier RS for a sport mode spin, smiling the whole time. “That’s what we’re talking about there - utterly brilliant - I think I’m in for many many happy miles driving this.”

Commenting that the RS was already brilliant, Shmee added that, complete with the mountune axle-back exhaust, “it’s now even better, which is exactly how we want it!”

Before leaving mountune HQ grinning (again), Shmee went through his list of options of what to do to the car next… I think we’ve got you covered there Tim!



Autosport 2017

Written by Wednesday, 25 January 2017 10:55
With the year barely underway, the mountune Racing team, together with thousands of industry professionals headed to the NEC in Birmingham for the annual pilgrimage to the Autosport International show. Located within the Engineering hall, the mountune stand exhibited a small selection of race-winning engines and high-performance components. As ever, the show proved a great success for the team who were kept busy discussing various new opportunities and updating our existing customers on our latest news and plans for 2017.



Further afield, mountune-powered race machinery was also easy to spot, like the eye-catching 2017 BTCC Team Shredded Wheat Focus ST and their recently announced driver lineup of Mat Jackson, Depper and Davenport. The covers also came off the newly announced RX2 support series, MRF’s single-seater was on display and the ever-impressive MONO was being exhibited by the BAC team… all of which being powered by mountune race engines.

Vaughn Gittin JR. Focus RS

Written by Wednesday, 02 November 2016 15:42

Unveiled in front of thousands of industry professionals and fans alike, Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s latest creation is as expected, wild to the eye, loud, and suitably equipped to destroy tyres in a matter of minutes... all with more than a little help from mountune!

It's fair to say that Vaughn's Focus RS is going to have a seriously tough life, spent largely at full-throttle and very, very sideways! To ensure the highest possible performance, Vaughn knew he needed quality upgrades that would both increase power output and maintain reliability, even in the toughest of scenarios.

Being the exclusive RTR EU parts distributor for Vaughn's Mustang range, the mountune suite of Focus RS upgrades ticked all of the boxes, making mountune his obvious choice.

Vaughn's Focus RS is equipped with:

High-performance intercooler
Charge pipe upgrade kit
High-flow induction kit
Stage 1 transmission upgrade kit (including Quaife ATB)
Uprated roll-restrictor
Braided brake line kit

To make sure everything was working well - even when sideways, we thought what better way than to strap one of the team in next to Vaughn and let him do his thing in the Ford Out Front arena at SEMA 2016.


The victim (our Marketing Manager Rhi), jumped at the chance for some sideways product testing - if you want to see what she saw, or just see Vaughn in action, check out the video below.
