The guys from Mcchip have improved the power and torque for the Ford Focus RS with a new high performance kit. From the factory, the Ford Focus already packs a punch with 305 hp and 440 Nm of torque, but Mcchip decided to add even more. Offering two stages, the tuning company increases the power with some simple modifications. The first stage consists of an engine remapping which boosts the numbers to 345 hp and 520 Nm of torque. The second stage includes a new intercooler, spark plugs, intake manifold, sports exhaust system, and a chip to bring it to 401 horsepower and 612 Nm of torque.
If both kits are installed on the Ford Focus, it can reach a top speed of 279 km/h, or 271 km/h with just the stage one kit. Through its six-speed manual gearbox the Ford Focus RS can go through basically two sets of tuning. The first stages of the kit costs 799 euro from Mcchip, while the stage two kit that includes several aftermarket parts goes for 4,499 euro.
