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.

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!
