Restoring a Legacy: The Journey of Building a 21-Year-Old Mk1 Ford Focus RS

Welcome to the Demon Performance Centre the Ford RS Specialist blog, where we share the thrilling journey of resurrecting a classic: the Mk1 Ford Focus RS. We embarked on a mission to breathe new life into this iconic vehicle, from its bare bones to a powerhouse on wheels.

**Beneath the Surface: Unveiling the Restoration**

Our journey began with a meticulous restoration of the underside, aiming not just to revive, but to surpass its original glory. Every nut, bolt, and component was scrutinized, restored, or replaced, ensuring a foundation stronger than ever before.

**Power Reinvented: Engine Rebirth**

Central to our restoration was the heart of the beast – the engine. With steel conrods and forged pistons, we fortified it to handle the sheer power of the Garrett GTX Gen 2 Turbocharger. This marriage of strength and precision promises an unparalleled driving experience.

**Exhausting Excellence: Crafted by Champions**

Elevating performance further, we entrusted Primary Designs, known for their work with F1 and WRC teams, to fashion an exhaust system tailored to perfection. The result? A symphony of power and efficiency, echoing the spirit of motorsport excellence.

**A Tribute to Greatness: Remembering Peter Fulke-Greville**

In our journey, we were honoured to collaborate with the late Peter Fulke-Greville, the visionary behind Spec-R. His craftsmanship and passion illuminated every project, including our own. His legacy lives on in every cooling solution, a testament to his brilliance and dedication. Rest in peace, Pete.

**Unleashing the Beast: Mastering the Road**

With power comes responsibility, and to harness the 400 bhp unleashed by Demon Performance Centre’s remapping, we equipped the Mk1 Focus RS with a Kaaz plated differential. Say goodbye to torque steer problems, as we pave the way for a seamless driving experience.

**Conclusion: Where Legacy Meets Innovation**

As the curtain falls on this chapter of our journey, the Mk1 Ford Focus RS stands not only as a testament to its storied past but as a beacon of innovation and performance. With each rev of the engine, we celebrate the union of heritage and progress, forging a new legacy on the open road.

Join us as we continue to push the boundaries of automotive excellence.

Stay tuned for more updates from Demon Performance Centre, where dreams are transformed into reality, and legends are reborn.
