GLWS. Curious what warranty is left with the Mountune B4 installed?
That's an interesting question; When I bought the car 3 years ago, Ford was selling Mountune products through their performance group. Literally, you could order from your Ford dealer and have the parts installed at the dealership. So, I'd guess they'd have a real relations issue voiding the warranty with parts they sold! Last time I checked, Ford stopped the relationship with Mountune, so I guess that party is over. Not sure why.

Funny, no I tried to buy it from him a few years back and the prices have now gone nuts - This 575 Maranello is a manual shift car which in Ferrari world has amped the value over F1 tranny cars significantly. The gent who owns it a good pal and he was astounded how the Lil'ol RS Ford smoked him in some twistys. Remember, we are at about 6500 feet and the RS with the tune and turbo loses zero hp...the Ferrari Loses about 20% as it is normally aspirated. Think on this: 575M hp at sea level is 515: at 6500 ft about 412 hp. 575M weighs at least 3800 lbs. Focus RS with mild tune runs at 400 hp at sea level and same at 6500 feet and weighs about 3400 pounds. Ferrari @9.22 lbs to hp vs. Ford @8.5 lbs to hp...another win for Ford vs. Ferrari! And, the fact that we run AWD with sticky tires makes the RS a crazy good street fighter. A true wolf in sheep's clothing!
I know that I'll regret selling...
