@white-rs2 With it being mountune I’m guessing weight reduction from his wallet
UK - England
made me laugh out loud properly ?
The rest of the “M” maps suck
Are you having it dyno’d after all these parts are fitted and any run in time needed if any.
White rs 2 these parts have been fitted since I’ve run the engine in from 1000 miles
the dyno sheet was posted earlier
The inlet manifold is bigger and has better flow characteristics from what I can see
the spacer is for a boost gauge or water meth as I can now fit both as the inlet has a tapping for this also
The spacer ,I have read report from other manufacturers that it increases tourqe there are several videos to support it on line so I thought what the hell il give it a try
So the help or the bug question I wanted to ask somebody was
as previously stated the engine problem I’ve had that ford and Mountune didnt want to know about
i booked the car into indigo gt for an engine rebuild at 2843 miles
i had spoken to devil developments and for 3k they fit PEC rods wossener pistons Athena head gasket arp bolts etc and a mad 420 map
indigo gt quoted £3700 for Mahle rods
Je pistons Athena head gasket arp bolts etc. And a custom Ecutek rolling road
they reduced that cost to £3200
nut then with a precision turbo and a map up to 500 bhp price went to £6303
so ……I booked in with indigo GT
Mountune stepped in after a long wait, they want the car back to strip it and investigate it for their own findings so they can future proof their products or prove it was fords failiure…
I will post up once I know exactly is happening with mountune they have put an offer in the table which I’d like to see through before I comment any further
Big question: should we be tuning this car? Did Ford get everything from this engine and it should be left alone. Big question.
Was your dealer… Dagenham?
The Mk3 Focus RS was built to a Ford spec of 400bhp bear in mind the Sierra RS Cosworth was built to a Ford spec of 300bhp and those ended up produced 500+bhp.
Obviously you’ll have to change shit loads of stuff to hit 500bhp in either the Focus RS Ecoboost or Sierra RS.
So yes and no the answer is relative to what you want and how you end up their. The More power, the more bits will need changing.
Yes my dealer was Dagenham trust ford
