Vaughn Gittin JR. Focus RS

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.

 EXHAUST ISOLATOR...

Fiesta ST Exhaust Isolator

The mountune uprated exhaust isolator helps ensure accurate alignment, particularly when attempting to DIY install the mountune cat-back exhaust, without proper access to the underside of the vehicle.

The isolator features a higher shore hardness that prevents movement of the rear resonator whilst transmitting minimal additional NVH into the cabin of the car.

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)

 
MK3 FOCUS RS
 Bronze Leggera HLT

OZ Racing Leggera HLT "m-Spec" 8.5x19" wheel

Available exclusively to mountune, the bronze OZ Racing Leggera HLT wheel gives the discerning mk3 Focus RS owner the opportunity to upgrade their wheels to one of the lightest, strongest, and best looking on the market.

The mountune Leggera HLT features an ET45 offset, and boasts an additional 0.5" in width, whilst improving the appearance and facilitating more clearance for big brake kits.

The Leggera is, as the name suggests, seriously light in weight. 9.95kg in fact, which is over 1.7kg lighter than the factory forged option wheel and 2.8kg lighter than the standard RS wheel.

Features:

  • 8.5x19", 5x108
  • ET45 Offset
  • Lightweight - only 9.95kg per wheel!
  • 2.8kg lighter than the OE wheel | 1.7kg lighter than forged OE wheel

  • Unique mountune carbon centre cap
  • Each wheel is supplied with 5 McGard black wheel nuts

MUSTANG ECOBOOST
INDUCTION HOSE

Mustang EcoBoost Induction Hose

The mountune high-flow induction hose for the Mustang 2.3-litre EcoBoost has been engineered to increase air flow to the turbocharger, and replaces the restrictive factory hose between the air box and the turbocharger intake.

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!

Today, mountune and Ford Performance announce their official power-boosting engine power upgrade kit for the mk3 Focus RS.

Ford Focus RS customers in the EU can now further enhance the award-winning performance of the acclaimed high-performance hatchback with the official Ford Performance by mountune power upgrade package.

The FPM kit includes a high-flow induction kit, uprated re-circulating valve, performance calibration and FPM badge, with a retail price of £899 inc. VAT. 

Co-developed by mountune and Ford Performance, the approved upgrade boosts peak power from the specially engineered Ford 2.3‑litre EcoBoost engine by 25 PS to 375 PS and peak torque by 40 Nm to 510 Nm using overboost.  The Ford Focus RS achieves improved 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration in 4.5 seconds with the top speed remaining at 165mph (266 km/h).

“Ford has a proud history of working with Mountune to unleash even more power from our hot hatchbacks for dedicated performance enthusiasts,” said Tyrone Johnson, vehicle engineering manager, Ford Performance. “Boosting power to 375 PS launches the already class-leading Focus RS even further ahead of the field.”

Any Mountune-appointed Ford dealer will be able to fit the upgrade in 1.5 hours and it is fully compatible with the Ford warranty, meaning Ford Performance by Mountune Focus RS vehicles will continue to be covered against mechanical failure.

The second of our three-phase performance parts release has been unveiled today, the majority of which are available to purchase from both mountunestore and mountuneusa now!

The range features a power enhancing induction kit, charge pipe kit, intercooler and re-circ valve together with chassis / transmission upgrades.

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.
