Yup. Might ditch the STI for one after a couple years.

I actually posted about this weeks (months?) ago on FB when the global marketing guy from Ford made the comment, but I wanted to see if you had another source or link.

Quote:
Developed by a team of Ford Performance engineers in Europe and the U.S., the all-new Focus RS is the third generation of Focus RS cars, following models launched in 2002 and 2009. The 30th car to wear the legendary RS badge, the Focus RS will be built in Saarlouis, Germany.

Focus RS is one of 12 new performance vehicles Ford will bring to customers globally through 2020 as part of a new era of Ford performance, and will be available for delivery to European customers from early 2016.
I'll admit I skimmed, but it sounds like the same vague marketing stuff I read previously. Yes it will come to the US, but no quoted numbers and I guarantee they will be less than what our European neighbors will get.

Having said that, it does look neat. The "drift mode" thing is silly though

I hope it's as good in implementation as it looks on paper and in theory.
I've tried this on sti's and the car still blowed like a fwd.

So "everything" is installed on the WRX. Gonna daily it for a couple weeks while tuning.

Not sure how I feel about ELH: I mean I've driven tons of scoobs with them, but this is the 1st time I live with it including early morning cold starts and trying to drive to work as quietly as possible. It's not quieter than UELH, that's for sure. The frequencies are different, so different sound, and a bit more mellow, but overall it seems louder (as it should, it's quite a bit more flow over the stocker).
Deleting the air pump was a really good idea. The turbo also has a glorious whistle at part throttle.

I'll take some pictures soon. Maybe vids too

I've only seen it done on Tim White's car, but that has ALLOFTHEDIFFS, and the DCCD **** is just labeled drift and less drift.

a wee bit laggy for my taste, but I'm not complaining.

comparison


I'd be lying if I said I don't miss the torque from 2500-3500 :(
But a tradeoff is a tradeoff, so it is what it is. Pulls like a beast from 4-redline. Tempted to run ALLOFIT

That is sweet!!!! Damn I would sort of be tempted to leave it alone, that looks pretty fun as-is! What does it weight? My C63 is about 400whp and 3,700lbs, so I'm guessing your car is actually a bit faster... That's NUTS!

Lol, makes me want to tune my C63.... Tune alone is worth ~50whp on this thing, and it's NA!

No, play with miata instead.....

Ok let's talk about catch cans.

Being on corn I don't want an AOS or anything dumping back into the pan.
Also having a huge tmic I don't have space for the Moroso Dual catch can setup that I was wanting to get.

So it looks like I may need to go custom/diy.

I want to filter/"catch" both, the valve cover ports and the pcv. This means I need 4 ports. This is why most catch cans for this car (13 wrx gr) are dual catch cans.

I want to try to do just 1 catch can. Is there anything out there that's of decent quality with 4 ports? 2 in, 2 out.

if I go the dual can route, I'm kinda tempted by this:

The guys at RadiumAuto make some pretty bitchen cans:



They are a bit pricey though.

I do kinda like the "filter" in the Jegs one you posted.

Check out the Racer X setup for the BRZ, I'm sure they have it in a "generic" setup as well.
