Ford Focus RS GGR RS370FR! that’s a big name for a car and specially a hatchback, but after all this is not an ordinary car anyway! This is a creation of Graham Goode Racing Ltd (GGR) based on the 300hp Ford Focus RS mkII. With the GGR treatment, the 2.5 liter 5-cylinder engine of the RS chucks out 368bhp and 339lb.ft which is 22 percent more than standard, and that makes a lot of differences!
GGR’s engine tuning program consists of carbon fibre Cold Air Induction System (CAIS), large capacity air to air intercooler with alloy air diverter plates, large volume fuel injectors, silicone boost hoses, large bore exhaust turbo front pipe and sports catalyst section, and ECU remap using Superchip’s Bluefin and firmware upgrade.
“In our opinion, this is the optimum power and torque output for the car,” says GGR’s Technical Manager Alastair Mayne, “because even with the sophisticated Revoknuckle front suspension and Quaife ATB differential, gaining sufficient traction can be a problem. Bearing that in mind, we’ve made a conscious policy decision to limit the engine’s torque, although there’s certainly more to come from the motor if we wanted it,” Mayne continues, “because the RS370FR package is running relatively low levels of boost.”
