    “The 2015 Focus ST MP275 upgrade is the latest addition to Ford Performance’s vast Focus and Fiesta performance catalog that gives enthusiasts the components they need to take their car to the next level,” said Adam Gair, product manager, Ford Performance. When the parts installation and tuning is performed by an authorized Ford Performance technician, Focus ST retains its factory warranty – a huge benefit for any customer looking to get the most out of the ownership experience.

    And in my opinion, this is what's killing the FR-S/BRZ twins. Too little horsepower.

    Great upgrade for Focus ST, now let's see the upgrade kits for 1.5EB & 2.0 EB in other vehicles
    like Fusion, Escape, Edge ect...Lots of owners would sign up for Ford approved upgrads.

    The only thing I find ludicrous is the reporting. GM did this in 2009 for the Cobalt, HHR, Sky and Solstice. Too bad they're not doing it today.

    I hope that Ford NA switches base engine in Focus from 2.0 DI to 1.5 EB like Europe and rest of the world.
    The Powershift dry clutch transmission is gone replaced by the 6F auto trans - a move like that would go
    a long way towards restoring buyer confidence in Focus..
