One of our favorite brands to discuss with customers is Radium Engineering. If there is a brand that hits the nail on the head with every product release, it's Radium. If they make a part for your car, it has a good chance of being the best version on the market. Function and form seem to be loosely used terms in the aftermarket performance world. With Radium Engineering, they set the bar for what it should mean. The words elegant, useful, and drool-worthy all ring true with every part they pump out. When it comes to the Ford Focus ST and Focus RS, here's what Radium has to offer and our take on how it can help your build be a success.Read More
300whp in a well balanced, 3,200 pound, front-wheel drive hatchback is underrated. Don't get me wrong, 400 is better if you're....me, or anyone else like me. But 300whp is nothing to shake a stick at. That's good enough to take down many other $40k-50k range performance cars while paying a fraction of the price and being able to comfortably take 3 or 4 kids to school (not while you're taking down the other car, of course). With the Focus ST, it's relatively easy to get there.Read More
You simply cannot plan your WRX build the same way you could up through model years 2014 for the WRX and 2021 for the STI. The car is fundamentally different than previous generations. The FA20DIT powered WRX is a massive overhaul from what Subaru owners and enthusiasts were used to prior to it's 2015 model year release. On paper, it seems similar - turbocharged, boxer engine, all-wheel-drive, sedan. After that it gets blurry. Aside from a new body design, the engine is now direct injected and features a completely different turbo configuration with a twin scroll unit sitting right underneath the front of the engine with very short header runners leading to the turbine housing. This is a huge contrast to the port fuel injected, single scroll turbo located above and behind the engine with past EJ series engines.Read More
