The Ford Focus RS has the modern aggressive look with the performance numbers to match, and is open to a wealth of different tuning options. So it comes with little surprise that Ford is coming out with a several modified RS models at this years SEMA show. One such model is coming from Roush Performance, who is considered one of the best Ford tuners in the business.
This particular program has it all. It has aerodynamic upgrades, engine modifications, enhanced suspension, a new set of wheels, and even a new shifter ball and performance pedals. And the difference it creates, speaks for itself.
On the exterior of the Ford Focus RS the major upgrades are from the aerodynamic side, with several components popping out at you. The front end has received a new and aggressive front splitter. It now features a vertical fin, and new intakes, and well as changing the front grille, and a new front tow hook. The hood now has heat extractors. And the addition of side splitters and custom painted mirror caps changes up the side profile. Included in the transformation is the addition of XPEL’s stealth paint protection film.
Finishing off the exterior upgrades is a new set of 19-inch wheels from Trakpak lightweight wheels series. The wheels are also shod in Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires and completed by slotted brake rotors from PFC Brakes.
On the interior of the Focus RS we see a black shifter balls and performance pedals, both from Roush Performance.
Not much information has been shared yet about performance upgrades on the 2.3 liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. What Ford has released is that Roush Performance has done some engine tuning. As well as a short block from Ford Performance, presumably so that the engine could be reconfigured after the engine modifications were done.
Roush has said that the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine has 500 horsepower, and it comes with a new three way adjustable suspension kit and camber plates from the Trakpak program.
It hardly comes as a surprise that one of the best Ford tuners out there is showing off their expertise at SEMA, where the best in aftermarket companies come to showcase their latest and greatest projects.
