Here are some of the installs and mods made to my 2014 Fiesta ST

My first mod was a window tint, which is both an appearance mod and an interior mod since it keeps interior temps lower. Plus it looks cool.
This is what my FiST looks like after the 3M ceramic tint. Cost $300.00



Next, I applied a clear bra to the hood, mirrors and front end. Cost $600.00



Next mod was a mountune high flow induction hose. Cost $189.00



Then I bought a Cobb accessport from FSWERKS. Cost $540.00. I also picked up a flat cable OBDII plug from ebay for $10.99

Electronic device Product Technology Camera accessory Light meter

I'm using a stick on the glass temporary mount for the Cobb, but have ordered a Proclip setup to attach the Accessport to the left side of the vertical portion of the 1/4 window. I'll post pics when its finished

This is what I did this weekend:

I installed a mountune quickshift. I found out that, in order to get the hex head fastener tight into the supplied shift point relocator, you need to cut a 5mm hex key short, so it will fit. Here are some pictures:

I used a crowbar to remove the shiftrod end from the ball end.

Here is a pic of some of the tools I used.

I also installed the Mountune air box. Since I live in SoCal, I painted the outside of the box black to match the OEM box. I also painted the fastener heads black.



I also installed an ebay directwire kit to connect my Escort 9500IX radar detector. I used a mount from escort to attach the detector to the rear view mirror. The Directwire was $6.29. The rear view mount was $79.00. I used an add a fuse, on a 20 amp line, fuse # 11 for the windshield wipers. I cut the end of the Directwire, and removed the inline fuse, and soldered all wires up. Only the add-a-fuse powerline was crimped. There is a panel on the passengers side you can remove to enable routing of the wire from the fuse panel to the radar detector.

Then I got some performance blue in a rattlecan so I could paint the engine cover. Here is the finished result.



Installed in the engine.



Here are pics of the mirror, escort and wiring install




Then I installed two shifter balls. A Cobb then a Breedt one. The Cobb's weight wasn't heavy enough.



Yesterday I added a SiCo development hood strut. Cost was about $120.00, a little pricey, but the hydraulic strut works great. It comes with instructions, but the pictures are small. Here are some pics of the install.



The strut fits on the right side of the engine. you need to remove the ground bolt on the strut and one of the strut nuts to attach the btacket. I also had to remove the left nut on the brake fluid remote filler to bet the bracket to fit.



I've inserted the bracket and am reinstalling the strut nut.



Tightening down the fastener for the brake reservoir.


Tightening down the ground strap.



Finishing up tightening the strut nut.



Installed the hood strut attachment ball. This has a split c washer on it. You insert it into a hole in the hood, then tighten it down. Very well engineered. The instructions say to use a jewelers screwdriver to aid in tightening, but you can pull down on the c washer while tightening.



Each end of the gas strut has a small pin you remove and reinsert after mating the end of the strut to the bracket or the hood ball.





Finished up.


Next up is a mishimoto oil catch can using the OEM pcv lines. Turns out, there is a stud sticking out of the left side strut tower that may serve as a mounting point for the catch can. I'm waiting on parts for this mod.




6mm stud. Looks like a good mounting point for a bracket for the mishimoto oil catch can.

I like it! Getting mine in blue wednesday morning.

Might paint the engine cover like that. How does it look without the cover?

Not bad!
I dont know how I feel about the engine cover, looks like it could use a bit more touching up? But great start on the mods!
Actually I was waiting for the paint to harden, before I wet sand and buff. Also, the lighting was fluorescent shop lights which makes everything look bad. Check out the pic taken on the concrete outside.

I just picked up a set of OEM headlights. I'm going to have SICKHIDS.com retrofit HID projectors, an LED strip, and black out the reflectors, so that it looks kind of like the Fiesta ST concept headlights. Going to take 8 weeks to complete. My OEM headlights will be available for purchase after that time. This is what the concept headlights look like.

I ordered three 3d ford gel badges from Heko.UK (domedbadge.co.uk) for the front and rear Ford badges as well as the steering wheel. These are blue background with red ford lettering, but the blue goes from black in the center out to blue. I wanted to try something different. Just to hedge my bets, I also ordered two badges from DMB in Black background and red lettering.

Oh I wish they would have given us the euro lights. What the heck was stopping them from putting them in the American version? You European, South African, Australians get all the best stuff! Though I am thankful for the ST, they did bring that over haha!

Just wondering if these lights were ever completed. I'd love to see how they look and get a price quote.
