While Ford’s (NYSE:F) Focus ST is the top-of-the-line trim for the hatchback — at least in America — that by no means implies that it is the performance ceiling for the vehicle. And tuning firms and customizers are finding that fact out.

Stock from the factory floor, the ST boasts 252 turbocharged horsepower, 154 miles per hour top speed at the racetrack, but also 32 miles per gallon for highway driving. However, the Ford achieves these figures from a turbo-charged inline four-cylinder engine, which is a fresh canvas in the eyes of those wishing to improve the car’s performance.
