%PM, %20 %604 %2016 %13:%Jan Published in New Products

Application list: Mk2 Focus ST, Mk2 Focus RS, Mk3 Focus 1.6 EcoBoost, Mk3 Focus ST
Price: £119 Inc. VAT

After an extensive period of R&D, mountune are pleased to offer an uprated roll-restrictor to their ever-growing Focus product line, compatible with a range of Mk2 and Mk3 Focus models.

Designed to reduce engine rock and prevent wheel hop under acceleration, this uprated unit is an essential addition for vehicles running increased power and torque, but is of equal benefit to cars running standard power levels, too. 

The body is manufactured from anodised HE30 grade aluminium and uses a bespoke size and shore hardness polyurethane bushing to control movement, whilst maintaining an acceptable level of NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness).

Available to purchase from all mountune PRO Ford dealers and re-sellers and online directly at mountunestore.com and mountuneusa.com

MR230, everything you need to know...

%PM, %08 %774 %2016 %17:%Jan Published in R&D

The Fiesta ST is undoubtedly a phenomenal hot hatch and for the first time, power hungry owners that want to take their ST's beyond standard, or mountune's Ford-approved mountune Performance MP215 upgrade can do so with the mountune Racing MR230.

The mountune Racing MR230 upgrade takes power output to 230PS, whilst torque increases to 340Nm. This increase in power output drops the 0-60mph time by a second to just 5.9-seconds.

What’s In The Upgrade? The kit utilises a host of existing mountune Performance parts (many of which do not affect your base vehicle warranty), allowing an easy way to upgrade in a modular fashion. The exception being the downpipes / sportscat which, as well as being an MR product, also requires a supporting calibration to prevent MIL illumination.

• Low-loss dual-entry airbox with secondary feed
• mountune high-flow panel filter
• High-flow 3" down pipe with 200-cell sports catalyst
• High-flow 2.5" bore cat-back exhaust
• High-flow charge pipe upgrade kit
• High-performance alloy intercooler
• High-flow silicone induction hose
• mTune handset loaded with MR230 calibration
• Optimised cam timing (on 3-door models via included mountune timing tool)

Three options to upgrade online are available; a complete MR230 upgrade from standard, an option for customer who already have an MP215 upgrade fitted and also an mTune (handset) only option. All three versions come supplied with a cam locking / timing tool that's required to optimise the cam timing.

Modified cam timing, huh? All 3-door models of Fiesta ST sold globally use a Bosch ECU and as such has different constraints and strategy to the 5-door model sold in North America. During the development of MR230, it became apparently clear that further optimisation could be achieved on the 3-door iteration by adjusting the cam timing (it's still electronically controlled, but to give a wider operating range). This yielded significant performance increases, but more importantly also changed the characteristics, providing a more liner uplift from lower rpm right to the rev-limiter.

All versions of the MR230 available to purchase online are supplied with the locking tool and instructions on how to make the timing change. However, this is not a job that should be undertaken by a DIY enthusiast as severe damage or failure could result in an incorrectly adjusted engine.

How do I upgrade? Upgrading to MR230 is easy. If your car is standard you need to purchase the full MR230 upgrade, if you have an MP215 upgrade already there's an upgrade option and for all other combinations you should purchase the remaining hardware and the handset only option. All three options are available to purchase online - just head to either mountunestore.com or mountuneusa.com.
