    If you have got your RS forged where did you get the bits, who done the work, and most important would you recommend them ?

    Thanks for that, Devil is where i am thinking of going to get the work done, just wanted to see if there was anyone closer that was recommended.

    Mountune is another, but the prices are slightly more eye-watering.

    Nice one mate!! Didn’t realise Dreamscience did that?! Even when you spec all the options it still comes in under £4,000. Those  Boostline Conrods look the dogs nuts, good for 800BHP, now that’s peace of mind!! 👍.

    Cheers, Marc.

    Mountune for me:

    1. Are not far from me, should I have any “issues” then I can take the car straight back!

    2. I would like to think that having been by Ford’s side since 1980, their knowledge and expertise  with regard to the 2.3 Ecoboost should be second to none.

    Devil Developments was my second choice.

    Regards

    Mountune being around since 1980 has no bearing on the Ecoboost knowledge base as that engine hasn’t been.

    Mountune would have had much more inside technical knowledge of the eco boost engine due to their close association with ford motor company

    Not sure if ford are competent when it comes to the 2.3 eco boost engine…. HG recalls and revisions in procedure since?

    So not sure if they are worth having by your side? 🤔
