Mountune’s latest performance kit adds more functionality to the Ford Focus RS and extracts almost 400bhp

Mountune has released two new performance upgrades for the Ford Focus RS called the m400R and m400X. Both tunes claim to offer large increases in performance, using the Focus RS’s standard turbocharger and a handful of bolt-on engine modifications.

The m400R is a firmware update for the company’s old m400 tune, adding more functions such as an adjustable RPM limit, a valet mode, full-time launch control and support for full-throttle gear changes. It’s available as a free upgrade to owners of the outgoing m400 tune, or to new buyers for £495.

To maintain the Focus RS’s warranty Mountune recommends that buyers install a few supporting modifications for the m400R remap. Extras include an induction kit, an uprated turbo recirculation valve, a larger air-to-air intercooler and a three-inch sports exhaust.

Although not strictly necessary for the m400R tune, for the sake of reliability, Mountune also suggests that buyers fit their engines with forged pistons, stronger bearings, uprated conrods, stronger head studs and a baffled engine sump.

Mountune offers two packages, including all the engine upgrades mentioned here. The upgraded engine ancillaries cost £4,160, while the stronger internals retail for £4,750. Both prices include the cost of fitting and the m400R engine remap.
Should buyers install all the supporting mods, Mountune’s m400R remap claims to reliably deliver 395bhp and 560Nm of torque, which is around 50bhp and 120Nm more than the factory-delivered tune.

For those chasing more performance, Mountune also offers a new m400X tune. It includes all the functionality updates from the m400R and retains the same peak performance figures. However, m400X-tuned Focus RS’s develop peak power and torque for longer in the engine’s rev-range.

As such, there’s more stress on the engine, so... [Read More]

Want the most exclusive Focus RS ever made? You've four days left to secure one of only three 400hp RS50s

(Here we go again with another limited offering FoRS)

Few people know about the Focus RS50 EVOs that were commissioned by Ford and produced by Mountune to celebrate 50 years of Rallye Sport because, well, only three were ever made - and none went on sale. That is until now, as TrustFord is taking bids on two cars until January 31st, with each advertised by the dealer for a minimum of £85,000.

No, that's not a typo; the reserve figure for each of these four-cylinder Focuses is about the same price as a new Carrera T. Bonkers. But the two cars do, at least, come with the most potent officially sanctioned setup ever used in a Mk3. Mountune has uprated their 2.3-litre EcoBoost powertrains with its M400 package, which, as the name suggests, gives the RS50 400hp, making it 50hp more powerful than the regular model.

To achieve that, the RS50's induction system, turbo and intercooler were upgraded, along with its internals including forged pistons and new steel rods. The more powerful engine breathes through Mountune's three-inch exhaust system, complete with a freer flowing 200-cell catalytic converter, while the six-speed gearbox it's mated to sports a Mountune short shift arm to reduce lever throw by 20 per cent.

Mountune also fitted each RS50 with DCC adjustable coilovers, braided brake lines and lightweight calipers, as well as stiffer anti-roll bars to boost handling and agility. There's a carbon fibre rear wing and RS50 decals on each car, too, which signify its role as the most extreme iteration of Focus RS.

Are they really worth a minimum of £85k, though? Most... [Read More]
