Tech: VMP Performance Focus RS SEMA Build

SEMA Bound

VMP Builds an RS Street-Fighter.

By SID297

One new Ford that I have been itching to spend more time in is the potent Focus RS.  With over 300HP on tap and AWD keeping that power planted the car definitely has the makings for a very fun ride.  But everyone here on SVTP knows that modded is preferable to stock, and SVTP Vendor VMP Performance certainly knows how to mod.  So when I first heard that they were building an RS for the 2017 SEMA show I knew I wanted to dig in and learn more about this project.

I love seeing pics like this; you just know progress is being made.

VMP started with a brand-new 2017 Ford Focus RS, and then proceeded to touch basically every hard part of the car.  Just check out the impressive list of mods on this thing:


  • Ford Performance cat-back exhaust**
  • Ford Performance short throw shifter**
  • Levels Performance high performance intercooler
  • COBB Tuning carbon fiber cold air intake
  • COBB Tuning Accessport handheld tuner
  • Turbosmart internal wastegate actuator
  • Kompact dual port blow-off valve


  • Air Lift – Performance series suspension
  • DBA USA 4000 series T3 front/rear slotted rotors

Wheels and Tires

  • Forgestar CF5 Deep Concave in custom matte black (19” x 9.5”) wheels
  • Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high performance (265/35ZR19) tires


  • Chris Cruz Artistry full custom paint in matte black with airbrushed graphics
  • Anderson Composites…
