2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test

2013 Ford Focus ST: Hennessy Performance Engineering Tuning Package

March 13, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

After spending a weekend with the Focus ST, let's just say I've developed a certain fondness for its quick reflexes and eager powertrain. There's never a dull moment with this thing. I drove to the drug store to buy a birthday card for my niece and the journey was like time spent on an amusement park ride.

Anyway, there are some people who will always want more of a good thing, and for those folks, Hennessy Performance Engineering has rolled out a tuning package for the Focus ST. Called HPE300, the package includes several upgrades (such as a cold air intake, ECU reflash and optional Magnaflow cat-back exhaust) that up the ST's already impressive 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque to a breathtaking 310 hp and 320 lb-ft.
