The guys from Graham Goode Racing (GGR), who specialize on Ford cars have modified the Ford Focus RS with a new engine tuning kit dubbed the RS 340. The new program from GGR requires no extra mechanical work, because the package is strictly a ECU tuning upgrade. Using the Superchips platform on the Ford Focus RS 340, GGR was able to increase the performance numbers to 340 bhp at 5,600 rpm, and 397 ft lbs of torque at 3,100 rpm. The Superchips platform is really unique however, because it lets the customers store the factory ECU mapping for future use if needed, while allowing GGR to perform additional remapping for bigger performance gains. GGR is already a leading Superchips provider, and these significant improvements will push them to offer this package to the Ford enthusiast market.

The Ford GT is already an amazing sports car; however, Wheelsandmore felt the performance could still be improved. The German car tuning company decided to modify this car even though it doesn’t really need much tuning to perform with the top names out there like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche. The color scheme for this particular car may not appeal to many, but the power numbers will. With a stainless steel exhaust system with valve control and sport catalysts, and an upgrade to the ECU, the Ford GT’s power increased to 608hp and 790lb-ft of torque. Those are some impressive numbers; however, a larger compression ratio unleashes its true potential and brings huge power gains of 710hp and 840lb-ft of torque.
