The 2016 Ford Focus RS is one of America's favorite sport compact with its exceptional driving, drifitng powers and the efficiency of its all-wheel-drive system. However, it seems that there are still room for improvements and tuners are upgrading the RS into a beast. 

No doubt the 2016 Ford Focus RS is already a cult object among tuners around the globe, with big names like Cobb Tuning and Mountune Performance already on the scene, Hennessey Performance Engineering, tuner company base on Texas, would not let this one pass and it seems that their 2016 Ford Focus RS is the best amongst all tuners.

On their website, Hennessey explains  the list of improvements they want for the 2016 Ford Focus RS: engine management, air induction, intercooler, exhaust, turbo, wheels, tires and more. This week, they posted the upgraded version on their Instagram account.

Although the initial power promised was around 500 hp, the new kit HPE400 specialist automotive accessories increases the power to an impressive 405 hp and 576 Nm of torque. As you know, this is an increase of 55 hp and 106 Nm of torque compared to the original figures of the series. Although some people still hope to see the 2016 Ford Focus RS with the 500 hp one day.

To achieve this feat, Hennessey Performance Engineering needs to reprogram the engine electronics, not all, but in depth that includes the installation of an air filter high flow and a new intermediate section in the exhaust with one throttle valve electronic control .

This figures may seem great to some, however, everything indicates that there is much more room for enhancement since the upgraded 2016 Ford Focus RS have not seen a larger turbo or new lines of escape or internal components forged, nor many of the other things that appear in the list of improvements on the website. It's safe to assume that Hennessey may just be on the phase 1 of the upgrade and more will come soon.
