AMS Performance getting ready to tweak the Ford Focus RS image

With the hottest hatch of the moment finally reaching dealerships status in parts of the world – such as the UK or America, the aftermarket scene is getting into shape in order to “tame the beast”.

For example, we heard of British tuner Mountune – which also has a US presence – it’s going to deliver a three-stage tuning upgrade to the Focus RS later on. But now we’re actually here to discuss the plans of another aftermarket specialist – AMS Performance – which is also getting ready to take a swing at the all-wheel drive hatchback. The Chicago-based company has recently taken delivery of a Frozen White Focus RS, also packing the optional 19 inch forged alloy wheels complete with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The initial plans include a carbon fiber air intake, an intercooler update, complete with a 3-inch downpipe titanium exhaust system – just to make sure it’s going to be heard before seen.

Once this first “stage” is over and after detecting the performance improvements, AMS Performance wants to go about its business once more and pack a Garrett GTX turbo – the wastegate testing is actually already underway. “Recently we’ve been releasing some new parts for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X such as a Titanium Exhaust and new 2.2L Stroker Engine so things are already ramping up for this segment. In addition some of our Volkswagen Golf R parts are weeks away from release so things are really heating up here for the AMS brand,” commented the tuner. And they’re acting shy – because they also have some big customizations for the Nissan GT-R, so they have from where to choose.
