Moun­tune have re­ally gone to town with the Mk3 Fo­cus RS, and their lat­est of­fer­ings for the 2.3-litre EcoBoost en­gine are far from sim­ple bolt- on up­grades. In­stead, they’ve turned their at­ten­tion to sort­ing out the en­gine’s in­ter­nals with these new forged con-rods and forged pis­tons, ready for some se­ri­ous bhp in­creases!

The con-rods utilise an I-beam de­sign with ex­ten­sive ma­chin­ing to op­ti­mise weight with­out re­duc­ing the rod’s strength. All edges are ra­diused to im­prove dura­bil­ity, and they fea­ture pre­ci­sion-ma­chined tangs to se­curely lo­cate rod bear­ings. They also come with low fric­tion sil­i­cone/bronze pin bush­ings ideal for high rpm ap­pli­ca­tions.

The pis­tons boast an en­larged 23mm gud­geon pin, to ad­dress a known area of weak­ness, and are ac­tu­ally man­u­fac­tured in the USA by Mahle Mo­tor­sport, us­ing their 4032 grade al­loy. The pis­tons also fea­ture the lat­est an­tifric­tion and grey phos­phate coat­ings to re­duce drag, wear, noise, and to pre­vent against mi­cro-weld­ing and pin galling.
