The Ford Focus RS advertising campaign promises “Exhilaration. By Design.” That’s a nice idea, but for many of us who drive these cars, we’re wondering where exactly it is we can find the aforementioned exhilarating experience.

A little background...

After being a phenom in Europe for several years, the Ford Focus RS is finally starting to get a reputation stateside for being “beefed up where it counts.” After all, it’s a 350-horsepower with a 2.3L Ecoboost engine, performance all-wheel-drive system, and an exceptional power distribution system. However, if you’ve ever tried to slam on the gas and been surprised by the car’s reaction, you’re not alone.

One of the biggest drawbacks of the Ford Focus RS is its pedal response time. For those RS owners who want nothing more than to go fast, that kind of a lag can be frustrating, to say the least.

Why the lag?

If you’ve ever wondered why it takes so long for your car to respond to your foot on the gas pedal, here’s why: Most late-model vehicles, including the Ford Focus RS, come with a built-in throttle lag. However, when you install a BD Throttle Sensitivity Booster, you’ll eliminate that lag while simultaneously forcing your performance curve to occur sooner, which will allow you to achieve much quicker turbocharger spooling.

Undoubtedly, you’ll notice an increase in acceleration, a decrease in pedal lag, and a lot more control over your vehicle. Here’s how it works:

Plug and play - The BD Throttle Sensitivity Booster is an easy-to-install component that connects to Ford’s factory parts; it also boosts signals up to 100%. In fact, the BD Throttle Sensitivity Booster has 3 different settings, which are Stock (factory), Medium (50% increase), and High (100% increase).

Ahead of the curve - by forcing the performance curve to occur much faster, the BD Throttle Sensitivity Booster helps the turbocharger achieve spooling much more quickly -- which is obviously a good thing, because you get more kick much sooner.

We have a wealth of other Ford performance parts and accessories available as well. Take a look around the rest of our site; we’re 100% confident you’ll either find what you’re looking for, or at least find something you want on our virtual shelves.

There’s a reason why we here at FocusSTShop.com are the web’s foremost destination for owners of the Focus, Fiesta, Mustang, F-150, and more. Whether you’re a weekend warrior who likes to work on your ride every Saturday, or you’re a speed demon who wants to hit the track with the best parts on the market, there’s no doubt you’ll be able to accommodate your tastes here.
