YouTube celebrity and supercar enthusiast Tim Burton, rolled his Focus RS into the mountune workshop last week for its first upgrade. Known as Shmee150 to his millions of online fans, he was keen to see how mountune could upgrade his RS, and after weighing up the options offered, he decided on our warranted FPM375 Power Kit.

Camera in hand, Burton filmed and narrated as the induction kit, crossover duct, re-circulation valve and ECU calibration were fitted before taking it back out on the road, and the grin on his face during the drive summed it up. Describing the difference as “fascinating”, Burton said he could “feel that it's faster immediately”, before adding “You have more of that push back in the seat feel – and that is how you make a cool car, even cooler.”

Already a devotee of the 2016 Focus RS, Burton commented on the increased induction noise, quicker acceleration and improved torque since fitting the Ford approved mountune power upgrade kit, and with a selection of warranted performance parts also available, he considered his next move. “What more could you want?", he asked, “I‘m a big fan of the Focus RS, I love driving it, and now I feel like I love driving it even more,” he added in his video.

Burton was equally as impressed with his tour of mountune HQ – inspecting the engines being built by the racing team and admiring the red and gold Alan Mann Racing MK1 Escort. Spotting the GT40's in the workshop he commented that “you don’t realise how special those are”, and got excited for his incoming new generation Ford GT.

A drive in mountune's own Mk3 RS with the full M380 Power Upgrade Kit, Axle-Back Exhaust System and mountune wheels did even more to win him over. “It's like an addiction,” he says, giving the accelerator a little stab through a tunnel. “It’s a no-brainer really, to come down to mountune. A perfect car made even more perfect with the mountune kit.”

Blown away by the service in the mountune HQ Workshop, Shmee commented that the upgrades are “definitely worth doing”, and smiled in the knowledge that his drive back to London that day would be far more enjoyable after his mountune experience.

How long until Burton is back for the catalogue of additional warranted RS upgrades? Watch this space!

New Product Releases - December

 

 
THIS MONTHS NEW RELEASES
This month sees a selection of new products released catering for a range of Fiesta & Focus models.
MK7 FIESTA ST
 MR265 POWER UPGRADE KIT

MK7 Fiesta ST MR265 Power Upgrade Kit:

The mountune Racing MR230 > MR265 upgrade offers existing MR230 Fiesta ST owners the chance to upgrade to a genuine 265PS and 370Nm experience.

MR265 maintains and combines impressive turbo response and silky-smooth drivability, with a relentless wall of torque that's mated in harmony with a top end that just wants to just keep revving! 

At the heart of the MR265 upgrade is the hybrid turbocharger - the standard unit was at its maximum safe operating limit around 230PS so the turbo has been substantially re-worked to provide the reliable uplift in performance required for MR265. Incorporated in the costs of all of the upgrade versions is also a new oil feed, required gaskets, studs and nuts, meaning the only thing the end-user requires is an oil and filter change - this must be performed after the new turbo has been installed and before the engine is run.

This kit is for customers that already have the MR230 hardware installed and require the following hardware to upgrade to MR265:

• mountune Hybrid turbocharger upgrade
• High-flow intake and turbo entry hard pipes
• Large-capacity intercooler (original mountune intercooler option also available)
• mTune MR265 calibration.
• New turbo oil feed / drain, gaskets and hardware.

Once upgraded, power increases to 265PS whilst torque is raised to 370Nm.

MK7 FIESTA ST
LARGE CAPACITY INTERCOOLER

Mk7 Fiesta ST Large Capacity Intercooler

The mountune large capacity high performance alloy intercooler upgrade includes everything you need to release the ultimate performance from your mk7 Fiesta ST and is included as standard with the MR265 upgrade.

Using an 18-row extruded tube and fin core, the mountune alloy intercooler upgrade gives a marked improvement in both air charge temperature (ACT) and pressure drops, ensuring optimum charge air temperature and therefore power, is available from the potent 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine. 

Our large-capacity intercooler upgrade fully maximises the available package space, while retaining the essential parts of the OE air management ducting for the Ford cooling system.

  • Superior tube and fin construction
  • No drilling or cutting required
  • Black powder coated finish - with choice of mountune logo in white or yellow
  • Improved core surface area over OE
  • Works in harmony with all mountune power upgrades and is the standard choice for vehicles running hybrid / larger turbochargers, as found in MR265.

Technical

The packaging for the OE intercooler and radiator on the mk7 Fiesta ST is very compact, leaving little space to effectively and safely install an upgraded intercooler. The mountune large-capacity intercooler upgrade was engineered to retain the essential parts of the original Ford cooling pack or air ducting system. This helps maintain engine cooling temperatures thereby avoiding "over-heat" conditions that reduce engine power. 

Careful consideration was given to the core design to ensure as well producing optimum charge cooling performance, airflow across the rest of the cooling pack be largely unaffected.

MK7 FIESTA ST
HIGH FLOW SECONDARY INTAKE...

Mk7 Fiesta ST High Flow Secondary Intake

The mountune high-flow aluminium intake and turbo entry hard pipes for the mk7 Fiesta ST have been engineered to increase air flow to the turbocharger.

The kit features an enlarged bore rear intake pipe, flouro-lined silicone coupler hose, clips and large-bore turbo entry pipe. 

As used in the MR265 upgrade. 

Features:

  • Increased airflow and power
  • Easy installation
  • Powder coated black finish
  • Flouro-lined silicone coupler hose
  • Supplied with hose clips

MK3 FOCUS RS
POWER TAKE-OFF UNIT BRACE...

MK3 Focus RS Power Take-Off Unit Brace

Engineered and manufactured from high strength alloy, the mountune PTU Brace Upgrade provides improved rigidity through robust CAD design and features an additional mounting point compared to the standard stamped steel part. 

As torque and power are increased over standard, the Focus RS' PTU casing can fail due to torsional load and strain caused from hard launches and aggressive driving. 

Supplied with all required mounting hardware, the mountune PTU brace can be installed without removing the driveshaft. 

  • Reduces chance of PTU case failure 
  • Machined from high strength aluminum 
  • Long lasting anodised finish
  • Easy installation

Features:

  • Allows for easier DIY installation of cat-back exhaust
  • Minimises rear resonator movement
  • Uprated shore hardness
  • Minimal increase to NVH
  • Sized to fit and compliment the mountune cat-back exhaust hanger

MK3 FOCUS RS
 M380 DYNO MODE...

M380 DYNO MODE

Now available as part of all M380 upgrades and as a free update for all existing owners (via Access Port Manager), you can switch the RDU on and off from your mTune handset without having to touch, or do anything else!

With a sophisticated rear-split torque-vectoring system, the AWD system of the Focus RS can make being able to dyno your RS difficult, if not impossible. Our Dyno Mode fully disengages the interaction of the RDU (Rear Drive Unit) allowing power to be taken from the front wheels. This also means a 2WD dyno can be used if a 4WD dyno is not available.

Dyno Mode is accessed via: Calibrations > Adjustments  > Dyno Mode (On / Off)

MOUNTUNE GETS READY TO ROCK

After months of talking and planning with Monster Energy athlete Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his team we're pleased to announce that mountune have been appointed the Exclusive European Distributor of RTR parts.

The RTR line of 2015/16 Mustang products includes a complete bodywork makeover, combining aggressive motorsport-inspired looks with a quality fit and finish that every Mustang enthusiast is sure to appreciate.  The stunning Tech7 19" or 20" alloys, together with the RTR spring kit are a visual combination hard to resist; improving handling and aesthetics by equally generous measure, whilst the RTR axle-back exhaust gives either the EcoBoost or V8-powered 'Stang the soundtrack it deserves!
 

In addition, complete Spec 1 or Spec 2 vehicle kits will also be available and include everything to transform the exterior, interior and chassis of your Mustang - including exclusive RTR badging and a Vaughn Gittin Jr. signed interior dash plate. 

All RTR 2015/16 Mustang components will be available to order via the mountune dealer network, or directly online from October 2016 - a full fitting service is also available at mountune's HQ in Essex.

mountune's 2.3-litre EcoBoost Mustang has already been upgraded to a full Spec 1 car, the first in the UK and features an extensive list of RTR body and chassis parts; combined with the recently released mountune M335 power upgrade kit, this Mustang is definitely Ready To Rock!

Focus RS Phase 3 - Now Available!

The concluding chapter in our three-phase performance parts Focus RS launch has been unveiled this week featuring not one, but two power upgrade kits. A fully Ford-backed FPM375 developed together with Ford Performance, and a mountune M380 version that further increases power and torque and that includes an mTune handset offering multiple new features.

The M380 upgrade uses the induction kit and re-circ valve utilised as part of the Ford-endorsed FPM375 upgrade and in addition includes a Sound Suppression Chamber and an mTune handset, with a retail of £1050 inc. VAT.

Once installed, power is increased to 380PS with 530Nm available from 3250rpm; enough to reduce the 0-62mph time to just 4.4secs!

The M380 kit is applied using an mTune handset which also incorporates additional calibrations and benefits above the standard mTune feature list:

• M380 - mountune M380 calibration
• M380 + EXH - mountune M380 calibration with optimised exhaust tuning for the mountune axle-back exhaust
• M380 + EXH TRACK - Same as above but aimed at track day users with pops and bangs removed to avoid excessive noise.
• M380 + TRACK - mountune M380 calibration with no pops for use with a standard exhaust on track to avoid excessive noise.
• Anti-theft mode - an additional layer of security that once enabled prevents the engine from starting.
• Standard base calibration.

As with all mTune, upto 6 gauges are also available to monitor OBD channels together with data-logging, performance meters for testing 0-60mph and 1/4mile times and fault-code reading.

M380 supports all EU Focus RS and is available now online at the mountune online store and from selected mountune dealers.

An RS M380 mTune-only option will be available for customers that have already purchased the required hardware, priced at £595 inc. VAT.


As well as the power kits, Phase 3 also included a lightweight axle-back exhaust saving over 3kg compared to the OE rear section. In addition, both the correct valve and motor are also supplied so there's no need to remove or swap across parts from the OE exhaust. CAD-designed and optimised, the axle back drops back-pressure - improving performance, brings your RS alive with the soundtrack it deserves and can be further optimised with the use of the exhaust calibration option on the M380 mTune handset.

A lightweight centre-section and sports cat downpipe are both in development to complement the axle-back exhaust.

As with all mountune products, these parts have been extensively tested at the Nürburgring, on dyno and proven over tens of thousands of road miles across multiple development vehicles to ensure perfect fitment, function and reliability.  


Our updated Focus RS catalogue detailing our full range of power, transmission, interior and exterior upgrades is also now online, just click the image above to view it and if you missed it, why not check out part 1 of our Phase 3 video instalment below:



Part 2 of this video contains a lot of sideways tyre smoking action so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that... plus, we've got plenty more lined up for Focus RS owners over the coming months, in fact, you could say we're still only just getting started!

mountune keeping it mysterious...

Check out the link below where Top Gear speculate about the mountune power upgrade kit for the Mk3 RS.  They seem just as excited as you guys, with good reason... http://www.topgear.com/car-news/first-look/mountune-readying-upgrades-ford-focus-rs.

The first phase of mountune RS upgrades including air filter, boost hoses, Quaife ATB and exclusive OZ Leggara wheel's are now available to buy directly from mountunestore.com and mountuneusa.com.

Focus RS Phase 1 Upgrades Available

Today marks the release of the first phase of mountune Mk3 Focus RS performance upgrades, all of which are available to purchase from both mountunestore and mountuneusa now!

This initial phase features a selection of easy first-off modifications to improve induction noise and performance, provide shorter gear-shifts, inhibit excessive engine movement and allow interior and exterior personalisation.

As with all mountune products, these parts have been extensively tested to ensure perfect fitment, function and reliability.

With early access to development mules, calibrations and strategies, the range of upgrades and performance parts soon to be available from mountune is extensive to say the least. We're sure you'll agree too, as you follow our phased product launches. 

Where's the MP power upgrade?!

The new Focus RS MK3 is one of the most exciting and dynamically advanced Ford road cars, and wears the coveted RS badge with pride. Our engineering programme to reliably extract more power and torque, whilst ensuring proper interaction with all of the cars dynamic modes, suspension and launch control has necessitated an extended durability Sign-Off.

The kit has been finalised after tens of thousands of mileage accumulation, data collection and high-speed work at the Nürburgring. However, as our final Sign-Off is not yet complete, the kit contents, cost and power figures cannot be confirmed at this time – they may still be subject to change, even at this late stage.

What we can share with you is that the power and torque improvements are very noticeable, as is the reduction in 0-60mph time and other performance attributes. 

The MP kit, including its contents and all of the surrounding information we know you’re eagerly awaiting, will be revealed in the final phase of our RS launch, at which point it will be immediately available to purchase and have installed.

In the meantime, we invite you to watch our Phase 1 video below and if you didn't sign up to our Racing Line newsletter and missed the exclusive first-look at our exciting new RS performance parts catalogue, worry not as you'll be able to see it for yourself soon. Keep an eye on our blog / social channels to make sure you don't miss it!
