  1. Defeat Auto Stop for Good

    Focus RS Electronics
    Found this mod on the F150 forum. It works. Perhaps someone might explore this for the RS. https://www.f150forum.com/f118/disable-auto-start-stop-good-332431/ Jacob
  2. Best Stripe Color for Stealth Grey?

    Focus RS Appearance
    I like that. Kinda the opposite of this: Jacob
  3. DIY: Global Windows Open/Close

    Focus RS Discussions
    These warning levels are in the App and have nothing to do with the behaviour of the RS Body Control Module, which is where the TPMS low pressure warnings come from.
  4. DIY: Global Windows Open/Close

    Focus RS Discussions
    I already have that app. But it doesn't solve the TPMS warnings from the RS when I run at 32 PSI. Don't want to get in the habit of ignoring warnings from the RS, hence I disabled the TPMS, which in turn renders the Tire Pressure app useless since there are no longer tire pressures provided on...
  5. DIY: Global Windows Open/Close

    Focus RS Discussions
    Good news. I was able to disable the TPMS altogether, using the Global Windows BCM update procedure; there is a parameter which has a value "without TPMS". After, I ran a road test for 30 minutes at up to 120 kph, using 32 PSI (cold) front & rear on my PSS 265/35 ZR18 daily driver tires. No...
  6. Car to compliment the Focus RS?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Fixed in 2017, depending on your definition of track use and whether or not you have an A8 trans.

  8. Thanks for the worthless TPMS system Ford!!!

    Focus RS Maintenance
    Complete agreement regarding the TPMS implementation. All of the data needed is available on the OBD2 buss. The reconfigurable DIC displays on the C7 Corvette are ample proof of what can be done with software.
  9. Is 2018 Fopcus turbo RS500 possible or not

    Focus RS Discussions
    As long as Ford continues to produce SVT and Ford Performance division vehicles, I am happy. Even our Escape Titanium 2.0L turbo has plenty of grunt. I couldn't care less about the Prius/Hybrid mentality.
  10. Seat Belt Pretensioner missing on Driver Side

    Focus RS Discussions
    Can anyone explain why Ford chose to exclude seat belt pretensioners cinch mode on the driver side but include it on the passenger side? For those owners interested in occasional track or autocross days, a driver side pretensioner on the OEM 3 point harness would be very helpful when used in...
  11. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    I make it 23.7%, or a loss of 83/350.
  12. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    Update 3: New session for RS in FWD mode: These results look a lot more reasonable, albeit the Dynocom unit seems to be very stingy. Jacob
  13. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    650hp/650tq
  14. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    Update 2: Today they did the Z06; 800 miles on it so I didn't expect miracles. Nonetheless, it was an interesting day: Because the car was new, the dyno operator was a little reluctant to hit the rpms hard. On the third pull I told him to take it to 6000 and we got an extra 35 HP. TQ...
  15. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    An Update: I have spoken with Dynocom Industries who have spoken to the Dyno operators. We are now in agreement; the next test will be with the dyno rollers unlinked and the RS with the RDU disabled i.e as a FWD car.
  16. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    As I said, I was following instructions from the Dyno operators, who, as far as I know have never done an RS. Do I believe the results? Hardly. But we will have another opportunity to come back with specific suggestions as to how to improve the results. It would help if someone has actual...
  17. All Wheel Drive Dyno

    Focus RS Performance
    My Dynocom Industries results from an all wheel drive friendly dyno i.e. rollers are linked but each end is taken into the overall result: The car was simply in sport mode with nothing disabled. What is interesting is the relatively low HP numbers but large TQ results. I can't help but...
  18. Paint Code for Front Grille Crossbar

    Focus RS Appearance
    Excellent idea. Thanks.
  19. Paint Code for Front Grille Crossbar

    Focus RS Appearance
    I suspect I will do just that.
  20. Paint Code for Front Grille Crossbar

    Focus RS Appearance
    Anyone found the paint code for the front "grille" crossbar? It looks like a black metallic with a bit of gold pearl in a satin finish. I need to address a few chips. Jacob
