Make/Model: Ford Fiesta ST

Year: 2017

Special Modifications: This is the ‘winter beater’ so that my Chrysler 300C SRT8 can spend the cold months and rainy days in the garage. I bought it with the best intentions, leave it along and just drive it. That lasted 82 miles, at which point the warranty was out the window! The car currently makes 26 pounds of boost and although not what I would call ‘fast’ it certainly punches above its weight class and can hurt some feelings on a twisty road.

It features Ported and Polished Cylinder Heads with Mountune V1 camshafts, Mishimoto Intake with sealed box and snorkel inlet behind the grille Catted Down Pipe with Magnaflow Exhaust Full Mountune cold-side charge pipes with Intercooler Short Throw Shifter Urethane motor/trans inserts with aluminum rear mount support, Boomba brake cooling diffusers, PowerStop Rotors, pads and steel lines Eibach front/rear sway bars, Pierce Racing 6-point lower chassis brace, subframe connectors, front/rear strut tower braces, tunnel brace and rear torsion bar insert, Bilstein Comp B8+ struts/shocks with Mountune Progressive rate springs and urethane seats, 17×8 Sparco wheels. It makes over 300 lb/ft toque at the wheels so it is great from corner to corner and light to light. Now I need to find another winter car…
