This month sees a selection of new products released catering for a range of Fiesta & Focus models.
MK7 FIESTA ST
 MR265 POWER UPGRADE KIT

MK7 Fiesta ST MR265 Power Upgrade Kit:

The mountune Racing MR230 > MR265 upgrade offers existing MR230 Fiesta ST owners the chance to upgrade to a genuine 265PS and 370Nm experience.

MR265 maintains and combines impressive turbo response and silky-smooth drivability, with a relentless wall of torque that's mated in harmony with a top end that just wants to just keep revving! 

At the heart of the MR265 upgrade is the hybrid turbocharger - the standard unit was at its maximum safe operating limit around 230PS so the turbo has been substantially re-worked to provide the reliable uplift in performance required for MR265. Incorporated in the costs of all of the upgrade versions is also a new oil feed, required gaskets, studs and nuts, meaning the only thing the end-user requires is an oil and filter change - this must be performed after the new turbo has been installed and before the engine is run.

This kit is for customers that already have the MR230 hardware installed and require the following hardware to upgrade to MR265:

• mountune Hybrid turbocharger upgrade
• High-flow intake and turbo entry hard pipes
• Large-capacity intercooler (original mountune intercooler option also available)
• mTune MR265 calibration.
• New turbo oil feed / drain, gaskets and hardware.

Once upgraded, power increases to 265PS whilst torque is raised to 370Nm.

MK7 FIESTA ST
LARGE CAPACITY INTERCOOLER

Mk7 Fiesta ST Large Capacity Intercooler

The mountune large capacity high performance alloy intercooler upgrade includes everything you need to release the ultimate performance from your mk7 Fiesta ST and is included as standard with the MR265 upgrade.

Using an 18-row extruded tube and fin core, the mountune alloy intercooler upgrade gives a marked improvement in both air charge temperature (ACT) and pressure drops, ensuring optimum charge air temperature and therefore power, is available from the potent 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine. 

Our large-capacity intercooler upgrade fully maximises the available package space, while retaining the essential parts of the OE air management ducting for the Ford cooling system.

  • Superior tube and fin construction
  • No drilling or cutting required
  • Black powder coated finish - with choice of mountune logo in white or yellow
  • Improved core surface area over OE
  • Works in harmony with all mountune power upgrades and is the standard choice for vehicles running hybrid / larger turbochargers, as found in MR265.

Technical

The packaging for the OE intercooler and radiator on the mk7 Fiesta ST is very compact, leaving little space to effectively and safely install an upgraded intercooler. The mountune large-capacity intercooler upgrade was engineered to retain the essential parts of the original Ford cooling pack or air ducting system. This helps maintain engine cooling temperatures thereby avoiding "over-heat" conditions that reduce engine power. 

Careful consideration was given to the core design to ensure as well producing optimum charge cooling performance, airflow across the rest of the cooling pack be largely unaffected.

MK7 FIESTA ST
HIGH FLOW SECONDARY INTAKE...

Mk7 Fiesta ST High Flow Secondary Intake

The mountune high-flow aluminium intake and turbo entry hard pipes for the mk7 Fiesta ST have been engineered to increase air flow to the turbocharger.

The kit features an enlarged bore rear intake pipe, flouro-lined silicone coupler hose, clips and large-bore turbo entry pipe. 

As used in the MR265 upgrade. 

Features:

  • Increased airflow and power
  • Easy installation
  • Powder coated black finish
  • Flouro-lined silicone coupler hose
  • Supplied with hose clips

MK3 FOCUS RS
POWER TAKE-OFF UNIT BRACE...

MK3 Focus RS Power Take-Off Unit Brace

Engineered and manufactured from high strength alloy, the mountune PTU Brace Upgrade provides improved rigidity through robust CAD design and features an additional mounting point compared to the standard stamped steel part. 

As torque and power are increased over standard, the Focus RS' PTU casing can fail due to torsional load and strain caused from hard launches and aggressive driving. 

Supplied with all required mounting hardware, the mountune PTU brace can be installed without removing the driveshaft. 

  • Reduces chance of PTU case failure 
  • Machined from high strength aluminum 
  • Long lasting anodised finish
  • Easy installation

Vaughn Gittin JR. Focus RS

Wednesday, 02 November 2016 15:42 Published in General News

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.

 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)

MR265, what you need to know...

Thursday, 13 October 2016 16:03 Published in R&D

Building on the hugely popular Fiesta ST MR230 upgrade kit - which maximised the reliable and safe performance output of the 1.6-litre EcoBoost whilst retaining the standard turbocharger, the MR265 turns things up a few clicks on the performance dial!  The MR265 builds upon the hardware found in the MR230 upgrade and in addition adds; a new hybrid turbocharger, high-flow rear intake pipework, silicone hoses and a larger intercooler, all fully optimised by the MR265 calibration, which is installed via our mTune handset.

Maintaining the modular approach where possible, all previously released kit hardware is retained, with the exception of the intercooler. At these higher power and torque outputs, particularly under sustained use, our original intercooler could not match the performance of our full-height variant. Whilst peak power and torque figures may not be achieved - certainly in warmer climates and / or under sustained use, the MR265 upgrade will still be available to MP/MT215 and MR230 owners that have already purchased our original intercooler, at a reduced cost - check out the matrix below for the various MR265 pricing options.

So how does MR265 stack up against our Ford-endorsed MP215 upgrade and our smile-inducing MR230? Well, it packs an additional 50Nm of torque over MP215 and 30Nm above MR230, whilst power is 50PS up when compared to MP215 and 35PS over MR230. There's no doubting that the additional performance is hugely impressive; maintaining and combining impressive turbo response and silky-smooth drivability, with a relentless wall of torque that's mated in harmony with a top end that just wants to just keep revving! 

Complete MR265 hardware kit list:

• High-flow induction kit • High-flow primary induction hose • Uprated intercooler
• Sports cat / downpipe • Cat-back exhaust • High-flow charge pipe kit
• mTune handset with MR265 calibration • high-flow rear intake pipework and hoses • Hybrid MR265 turbocharger
• Camshaft timing tool (revised cam timing) • New turbo oil feed, gaskets, bolts and studs  

N.B. Prices do not include installation.


At the heart of the MR265 upgrade is the hybrid turbocharger which has been developed by the mountune engineering team and is produced for us by the team at Owen Developments.

The standard unit was at its maximum safe operating limit around 230PS so the turbo has been substantially re-worked to provide the uprated, reliable boost (see what we did there?) in performance required for MR265. Incorporated in the costs of all of the upgrade versions is also a new oil feed, required gaskets, studs and nuts, meaning the only thing the end-user requires is an oil and filter change - this must be performed after the new turbo has been installed and before the engine is run.

Once the final components arrive with us in stock, MR265 will be made immediately available (excluding the USA), so stay tuned to our social channels to be the first to know when you can take the next step in realising your Fiesta ST's full potential!

The rear high-flow intake pipework and our larger intercooler will also be made available to purchase separately.

Focus RS Phase 3 - Now Available!

Wednesday, 10 August 2016 07:32 Published in General News

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!
