Ford Performance has just announced a new upgrade kit for the 2015 Ford Focus ST that reliably boosts power from 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque to 275 hp and 296 lb-ft, according to the automaker. That’s 23 hp and 26 lb-ft over stock.

The Ford Performance MP275 Focus ST upgrade kit includes a mountune induction kit, mountune high-flow intercooler, mountune mTune handset, and all installation hardware. Additionally, an available mountune air filter end cap can control induction sound and provide air filter protection from the elements. The mountune mTune handset provides a more aggressive engine mapping program to the 2015 Ford Focus ST hatchback’s ECU for quicker throttle response.

“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 Ford Performance Product Manager Adam Gair in a release.

The upgraded model should improve on the stock 2015 Ford Focus ST’s acceleration times. In our testing, the stock 2015 Focus ST reached 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and finished the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds at 94.3 mph. The kit should also improve upon the stock car’s 26.0-second figure-eight time.

The Ford Performance MP275 Focus ST performance upgrade is street-legal in all 50 states and doesn’t void the factory when installed by an authorized Ford Performance technician.
