COBB Accessport V3 - Ford Focus RS MK3 (2.3 EcoBoost)
The COBB Accessport is a firm favourite here and not just because it means the end user can install their own calibrations at home, but because the handset transforms the vehicle by adding the option of up to six gauges on screen at any time out of a list of literally hundreds. It gives you data-logging and remote E-tuning capability, diagnostic facilities for reading codes and resetting KAM etc. and allows us as tuners to harness the additional power of the COBB Ecoboost firmware to deliver even more awesome features!
These features also include the ability to swap between MSD power stages in seconds (with the engine still running) The swap is done by pressing the cruise control cancel button and then using the + / - buttons to swap slots. The slot is shown by the rev counter as you press the buttons. (IE: It points to 1000rpm for slot 1, 2000rpm for slot 2, etc.)
Yes, its as simple as that.
Pressing a button on your steering wheel can change your engines power output. The car also defaults to the last used slot on power up, so you can turn the car off in standard power if you are loaning the car to a friend for example... Imagine having STD Power, MSD 380, MSD 420, A valet mode (wont rev past 3000rpm or make more than 7psi boost) and also an anti-theft device, all accessible from your steering wheel controls! With MSD Multimaps, this is your new reality!
MSD Tunes available:
(Further custom tuning by E-Mail comes free if required)
Standard Calibration Features
MSD 350 (470NM / 350PS)
This is a calibration that mimics the vehicles standard power and torque but retains all the awesome COBB Firmware features and MSD's legendary driveability!. This was created specifically for use with MSD Multimaps and is ideal for Multimaps slot 1!
Additional hardware needed:
MSD 380 (540NM / 380PS)
This calibration works perfectly on a totally standard car and lifts the power restrictions from within the ECU, further enhancing the power output to 540NM and 380PS. The rev limit is extended slightly and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained and further optimised to suit the vehicles new power output.
Additional hardware needed:
MSD 400 (560NM / 400PS)
This calibration is designed to work with the factory hardware and a free flowing air filter to help with the extra air flow. This calibration further increases the engines power over our MSD 380, increasing the torque output to 560 NM low down and extending the power higher up the rev range to 400PS. The rev limit is extended slightly and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained and further optimised to suit the vehicles new power output.
Additional hardware needed:
MSD 420 (580NM / 420PS)
This is our maximum power output on factory engine internals and further increases the engines torque output to 580 NM and peak power output to 420PS. The rev limit is extended slightly and all the temperature protection features of the management system are retained and further optimised to suit the vehicles new power output.

MSD Multimaps: (Optional, at extra cost)
A firm favourite... This feature gives you 3 different power levels available at any one time. Imagine having MSD 350 (STD Power with enhanced MSD driveability and all our features), MSD 380 and MSD 420, all switchable from the cruise control buttons, even with the engine running. Imagine also being able to dictate which of those power levels the vehicle loaded up with when you turn it on… Well you can... Its called MSD Multimaps. (Anti-Theft and Valet modes are now also available on request in slots 4 and 5.)
MSD 420 – MSD 540
Further power is available for suitably equipped cars (Forged engine and Precision Power turbos / HPFP / Uprated injectors for example). These tunes can be done remotely but are outside the scope of a simple webshop form.
Additional fuel programming available. (Ask for further details)
All of our Accessport MSD calibrations come with the following awesome feature's enabled:
Return to standard tune yourself.
The Accessport enables you to return the original ECU calibration back to the vehicle at the click of a button. Selecting "Uninstall Accessport" will remove any tune applied by it and return the vehicle to its original tune and place your custom tune back on the Accessport, leaving it in an as new condition ready to be sold on. This can be done yourself at home with no tuner input required.
Flat foot shifting:
Enabled on all our calibrations, this features allows the accelerator pedal to stay fully depressed while shifting gears. The use of the clutch pedal will still be necessary, but keeping the accelerator pedal fully depressed between shifts allows for the turbo to stay spooled between gears, so you can concentrate on the fastest gear-shift and let MSD take care of the engine speed.
No hassle launch control:
No more entering menus in a hurry! With our calibrations the process of getting into launch mode is simply having the clutch pedal and accelerator pedal depressed fully. The engine speed will quickly raise to the determined RPM set in the calibration file. (Adjustable on request)
5-way launch control set-points:
This feature enables users to switch between 5 different launch control set points on the fly. You can use the factory cruise control system to switch between different set points. Our calibrations usually have 5 set points enabled from 4500rpm in slot 1 to 5500rpm in slot 5. (Slot choice varies due to other features)
Exhaust valve Tuning. (Optional & FOC)
Would you like the Focus signature exhaust growl toning down a little in your normal drive mode? Maybe have the exhaust valve only open after 4000rpm? Or only after 4000rpm above 20psi boost? Or always open in your sports modes? No problem.
Eco Shift light disable. (Optional & FOC)
Some people really dislike the Ecoboost economy shift lights and would like them disabled.
Just say the word and they are turned out forever! But the Performance shift lights remain and are improved upon! Disabling this will automatically enable the MSD peak performance shift light. (See below)
MSD peak performance shift up light. (FOC)
If the Eco Shift light is disabled we will utilise the shift up light with enhanced programming to now indicate the optimal performance gear up-shift point. The rev limiter warning light will remain active later in the rev range as normal. (Eco up-shift lights must be disabled for this feature to work)
Start / Stop system disable. (Optional & FOC)
Some people turn the start stop system off as the first thing they do when they get in the car.
Just say the word and we will disable it permanently for you, but leave you the option to re-enable it in your Accessport.
Shift Assist disable. (Optional & FOC)
Ford installed a shift assist strategy that hangs the throttle momentarily on gear shifts, which is designed to help the gearbox sync a little better for some drivers. Many owners really dislike it and wish it didn’t do it. Just say the word and its gone.
MSD Custom tuning, remotely!
Using the awesome data logging capabilities of the Accessport, we invite you to send us data-logs via E-mail so that we can custom tune your purchased calibration to better suit your own, individual vehicle. After log analysis, we will send you a further optimised tune that is based of feedback from your own vehicle. This feature comes standard with all our tunes for those owners who wish to get involved in some customisation and two revisions come free of charge with every MSD Tune. But don't worry, you can enjoy the product forever without getting involved in custom tuning should you wish to.
