USA Grand Opening

Written by %PM, %12 %679 %2016 %15:%Apr

This weekend marked the official opening of our new facility in the USA!

An industry and general open house event were both held to showcase what we can offer mountune fans and gear-heads alike in California, and beyond!

The 18,000 square foot premises located in Carson, California - near LA, houses multiple vehicle lifts for installation and service work, an engine dyno and build room, R&D offices plus our new super-cool showroom. We absolutely love the latter and the unanimous feedback from everyone who attended both events let us know that you did too! 

Packed with our latest products, together with more than a nod to our impressive motorsport-packed heritage, it's not just somewhere to purchase parts, but a destination for like-minded car nuts.

For those that couldn't make it, check out the pictures and our video below or, if you're in California, why not drop by and check us out for yourself - details below.

A huge thank you to all that attended plus special thanks to Ford Performance, Fifteen52 and MotoIQ for their event support.

Ford Australia confirms mountune availability

Written by %PM, %22 %606 %2016 %13:%Feb

mountune helps turn up excitement for Fiesta and Focus ST owners in Australia

Ford Australia has this week confirmed the forthcoming availability of the much-heralded power upgrade kits, for both new Fiesta and Focus ST, from mountune Performance.

In addition to mountune’s own European sign-off process, Ford’s Australian engineers have also tested these mountune Performance products at the Lara proving ground, ensuring compliance with local market requirements.

“We’ve been working closely with the various teams within Ford to bring our approved kits to Australian ST owners for some time and this announcement is the culmination of a lot of hard work, from both sides”, says David Moore, General Manager, mountune Performance.



With the mountune kits installed, Fiesta ST power increases to 158kW at 6000rpm and torque is raised to 320Nm at 3000rpm, while Ford Focus ST power increases from 184kW/345Nm to 202kW at 5500rpm and torque is raised to 400Nm at 2750rpm.

Sold under Ford’s new FLA (Licensed Accessories Program), it means both kits are backed by a comprehensive Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty of 3 years/100,000kms when fitted at point of new vehicle sale. Kits fitted after vehicle delivery will benefit from the remainder of the warranty period, or 12-months / 20,000kms – whichever is longer.

“Our Australian R&D and product investments are paying off as we transform Ford in Australia and customers respond to our new vehicles,” says Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford of Australia. “We think our new mountune Performance packs will bring even more excitement as we expand our performance vehicle lineup as part of plans to launch 20 new vehicles by 2020.” Kits will be available from Ford dealers in Australia by mid-year, priced at $2328 for the Fiesta ST MP215 and $4135 for the Focus ST MP275 upgrade, respectively. Prospective customers should contact their local Ford dealer for more information, or to place their order.
