EcoBoost- Mustang-310 HP Focus RS 350 HP

Hello

So this appears to be the same engine why the difference in HP between the two cars?

Focus might be making more boost.


Respect the classics.

Most likely a combo of more boost and more aggressive tuning. The RS from what I've read also has a much, much better exhaust note too.

copy/paste from another site.

o get the extra power out of the 2016 Ford Focus RS, the 2.3L EcoBoost engine from the Mustang has been fitted with a different turbocharger, an upgraded intake system, a larger exhaust system and a larger radiator, which helps keep this high performance mill cool over long periods of track time. This power is put to the ground via a 6-speed manual transmission and a new advanced all-wheel drive system that should be one of the best-performing systems of its type in the segment.

I believe the focus got new heads. Probably a different turbo and definitely different tuning.
They also made the intercooler so good that they had to partially block it off, it was causing condensation in the intake pipes lol
