2010 Ford Focus by BBR

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

A performance tuning package that pushes the output to 398bhp for the Ford Focus RS is being offered by BBR. These upgrades for the mega hatch come in four different phases, ranging from remapping the ECU software to new performance parts for the engine.

BBR, which is famous for tuning the Cosworth RS500 engine for the BTCC in the 1980s, said that it spent 18 months to develop these revisions.

The Phase One model, which costs 595, includes an ECU remap -- boosting throttle response and making the turbo's delivery more linear. With this remap, power is increased to 337bhp over the standard car's 300bhp, while torque is up to 369lb ft from 325lb ft.

For the Phase Two package, BBR replaces the standard intercooler with its own design. The Focus also receives a new air filter and inlet hose set, increasing power to 350bhp and torque to 378lb ft.

The upgrades for Phase Three include a new turbo, sports exhaust system and fuel injectors aside from the previous upgrades to boost power to 377bhp and torque to 388lb ft.

The final Phase Four package features a new high-flow fuel pump and an even more advanced turbocharger to enhance power to 398bhp and torque to 408lb ft.

This Phase Four upgrade package, which includes the previous three upgrade packages, is priced at 3895, plus a 595 fitting fee. BBR also offers changes to the suspension, such as new springs and dampers.
