  • Owns:Focus RS MK3

Hello , 

After selling my 432 bhp Mk2, 2010 Revo stage 4+ Focus ST,  and 5 months  of reading most of the topics on focusrsoc,  I've decided to present my car, a 2018 mk3 RS EDITION  -Nitrous Blue . The car is stock for the moment, as I have some parts ordered and on the way :

- JW Racing carbon fiber hood

- MAXTON Design racing front  splitter

- Eibach Prokit springs

- Rotiform SIX 19"  8.5J wheels

- FEDERAL 595 RS- RR semislicks 

- Scorpion cat back exhaust

- Radium Dual catch can

- Radium breather plate

- Airtec stage 2 induction kit ( was returned to Autospecialists due to some design and quality issues)

 

For the moment, as the car has only 5000 miles ,  I will set it up on Revo Stage 1. After adding some  miles I will aim for more.

Cheers !

Some pictures with the AIRTEC stage 2 induction . I had some power loss problems after installation ( I opened an topic on this subject here https://www.focusrso...-induction-kit/  ), so I return to stock induction. Now I have to decide between Mountune or Mishimoto induction kit...

 

 

A few words about my ex AIRTEC Stage 2 induction:

PROS

- looks nice on the exterior

- gives the engine bay a sporty look

 

CONS 

- at a closer look I found some quality and design problems 

1. on the PCV inlet, I found metal drilling waste

2. the air sensor inlet was not properlly alligned so they had to drill in order to fit it.

3. the air sensor inlet was very sharpened so the air sensor oring even lubricated with silicone grease was cut.

- in the installation kit, they provide wrong screw nuts for the heat shield .

I've got the Eibach prokit springs and the 235 35 R19  Federal 595 RS- RR semislicks. I had a pair of  595 RSR Federal  on my ST and I was very pleased about it . Good grip, for 432 bhp on front wheels and quite stable on wet road.

Managed to install the springs... The car was lowered as Eibach says with 20 mm front/ rear. Now the car sits almost at the same level ( the rear has 4 mm more than the front) . The ride quality is the same and the car looks great.

I just installed the Maxton Design Racing front splitter.
Fitting time- about 1 hour.
The instructions from Maxton Design- minimal, no details

:))) maybe you need a bigger table :)))
In reality the splitter is not so exaggerated ....it gives the car that track look

Very nice. I've got the Radium PCV catch can kit and it's a really good bit of kit. Also fairly easy to install (the radium instructions are quite good).  :thumbsup:

As far as I know, Scorpion exhausts for the MK3 are all non res with the option of valved or non valved...
