  2. Focus RS MK3 recall discussion
    I've posted this elsewhere but think maybe it's worth a separate post. My car's just had pressure test and result was that need new head + gasket + short block. Apparently it's the worst that they've seen at the dealers (head/cylinders warped). Question is has anyone else had this on the FSA...

  9. Focus RS Mk2 Discussion
    Just wanted to check if my RS has been mapped. I bought it thinking it was completely standard and it feels absolutely rapid, but I guess they all do? Haha. Is there any risk with mapping a car that you think is standard but already has a map on it? As you can tell it's not something I know...
