I used to have a Focus RS for a few years, awesome car for the money! If you need any questions answering, I may be able to help. If not, I'm
still a member of the RS Owners Club and that's a wealth of knowledge for the mk1.
That sort of power made the RS come alive, can't imagine it in a kit - be prepared for wheel spin! Definitely watching this thread..
I don't have a map to show you, but I can ask on the forum if you like?
I remember someone did ask Garrett for one, but they couldn't supply it for whatever reason. The RS Turbo is a GT2560LS which I believe is
specific to the RS. They usually sit happy at ~22Psi peak and with the right map produce 320hp+
How come you don't fancy the standard Garrett turbo?
Would you not consider a t28r as fitted to pulsar gtir ???? Capable of bit over 300bhp and less leggy than tdo5 or t3 and readily available reasonably
cheaply ....probably the best t2 turbo you can get in std form

I have a 2560r which is basically a ball bearing version of the old t28. standard fit on a new nissan 200sx s15 and can be picked up for £550 brand
new new! from turbo dynamics and good for around 330hp
I had a mk1 focus rs from new, kept it 7 years, did 115k in it.
Good car, but sluggish compared to the other fast fords I have owned.
The 1.8 turbo focus we did was a lot quicker and more responsive, the main issue with the rs is poor map from the factory. We have seen a couple of
chipped/flashed/bluefin cars and they are better but still not right.
The only way your going to get it right is use aftermarket engine management, using the stock ford stuff is clever but a step backwards.

I fully respect your opinion Dale but your looking at this as a tuner who's customers want to get best from what ever they have put on your
For me I enjoy the challenge of making it work "what it says on the tin" for me its just cheap fun and keeps the brain busy. I know it
wont do what a mapped ecu will do. But I wont have the same investment either.
I am told the standard map is very rich making it boggy ?
You want to check that's the correct compressor map..
The standard map is known to overfull and also has a well known 'cough' at about 4.5krpm. I thought the ecu was regarded as powerful for
an oem unit. There is a company who has managed to crack it and live map it.
