STAGE 1 PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE £578.80 inc VAT
Enhanced power delivery, unique safety features and white-knuckle response at your disposal, Stage 1 Software for the Mk3 Focus RS gives you access to much more than just peak power figures. By engineering our Software in-house we have been able to completely re-design the way in which your vehicle delivers power and responds to your input with power available on-demand in every gear. Access to over 20,000 different parameters directly from the ECU enables the Revo calibration team to unlock your engines true potential, while ensuring everything remains within safe factory levels. Stage 1 Software is a must for RS owners who want stand out from the crowd.
2.3 LITRE ECOBOOST
The 2016 Mk3 Focus RS has arguably been the most talked about the release of the year; and for good reasons. Ford has managed to pack in plenty of tech including a 4WD system with independent rear clutch packs and features such as drift mode into a rather weighty package that still offers the agility and handling capabilities of a much smaller hatchback.
Although the RS is currently the most ‘powerful’ standard RS to date, we knew that there was potential for much more. Having over twelve months of development on the similar 2.3 litre EcoBoost engine found in the Ford Mustang and knowing the RS was to use the same Bosch MED17 ECU we have eight years of experience with, we were more than prepared for our Focus RS development vehicles. By evaluating the data logged on track, road and at our in-house dyno facilities, we were able to assess the capability of the RS engine and highlight areas we could improve.
We knew Stage 1 would really bring the car to life; by utilising the hardware’s full potential and integrating additional safety features unique to Revo such as Temperature Control which actively monitor oil, intake and exhaust temperatures and reduce power if they get too high, you can rest assured that your RS is able to take all you can throw at it, whatever the conditions ensuring a responsive and exciting experience, without compromising on driveability or engine tolerances.

We quickly discovered that the way in which the RS delivered power was far from linear. After data-logging on road, track and our in-house hub-dyno, we could see that boost was delivered incrementally, peaking much higher up the RPM range than expected. This higher RPM boost increase does nothing for midrange but does leave a spike in the power curve, giving a healthy peak power figure. This is more than a numbers game, Revo software has been designed to give a performance benefit in the real world, whether on the road or track, as highlighted by our power graphs, we have concentrated on giving power gains throughout the rev range with impressive midrange power increases making the RS an experience you won’t forget.
