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.
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!
You may remember a few months back we ran a competition for you, the enthusiasts, to design a new t-shirt to be added to our 2016 #mountunemerch apparel range. After receiving a tonne of entries, we narrowed it down to a few and Tiago Avevedo from Portugal was named the winner with his 'Fade Out' tee design, which is now available in both black & white versions via the online store.
From today, a vast selection of ROUSH products covering their entire 2015 Mustang range will be available via mountune UK. V8 power upgrade parts including their infamous supercharger upgrade, plus a large range of bodywork, chassis and ancillary items will be available to buy through our mountune dealer network, or direct via our online store.
"We’re delighted to be adding the range of ROUSH Performance parts for Mustang to our product portfolio as their official UK distributor. The Roush name is synonymous in the USA with both Mustang and the development of high-quality performance components, engineered to the same exacting standards that both we, and our customers expect." says John Mitchell, MD Revolve Technologies.
Tim R. Wheeler, VP of Global Sales for ROUSH Performance added “As Ford Mustangs continue to arrive in new markets around the world, we've seen increased consumer demand for ROUSH Performance products that enhance power, handling and appearance,” says Tim Wheeler, vice president of global sales. “Our partnership with mountune UK supports our growth plans to distribute highly engineered ROUSH products into European enthusiast markets.”
This agreement is a great achievement in expanding the mountune aftermarket product range into the Mustang market globally, and we look forward to working alongside ROUSH Performance.
Our in-house design team have been busy working on a range of new apparel for this summer season with new mountune Tee's, hoodies and snapbacks about to drop.
You may remember we ran a competition at the back end last year, which Tiego Azevedo from Portugal won after he sent us this cool 'blended’ design, which is available in both a black and white tee. We’ve also added the cool RS themed tee you see here offering a choice of wording to suit your style.
Made from 100% cotton, and displaying the usual mountune branding, these new tee's will be available to purchase online mid April, with the hoodies and hats following shortly afterwards
