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

Ever wondered if the hype is real? Here's your answer. Hell yes. Be careful though, if you take the plunge on a big turbo, prepare to never be satisfied with a stock turbo car ever again. It just won't be the same. The experience of a hard wide open throttle pull, holding 22psi, or more, all the way to 7,000 glorious rpm makes you mad that Ford gave you such a puny hair dryer of a turbo now that you know what boost can really feel like.Read More
400whp (that's wheel horsepower just in case you've been living under a rock) seems to be the magic number in front wheel drive turbo cars. If you have one, you know what I mean. If you want one, it's probably because 385whp is way too close to 400 for you not to get there. It's almost like being in a club. "It has 400 at the wheel." It's one of the most proud statements you can make if you have a Focus ST and it's making that much power.Read More
