Hey Braden, glad to see you over here :) It's going to be neat to see what this little powerplant is capable of producing.

Normally my first upgrade is wheels. However, the stock Fiesta ST wheels are actually really nice... so maybe tint and lowering sprints.

Hey Braden. I live in Sydney, Oz. I'm getting one of the first ST's delivered down here (in a few weeks), and would be keen to look at going with your tune when it's released!

Any distributors down here?

The Aussie spec ST will be covered by Mountune as the ECU is no longer shared with the US. Luckily they have the mTune MP215 kit coming for you soon!

Cheers,

Thanks for the info Brendan. I had read a couple articles that mentioned Ford Oz was looking at bringing the Mountune package here but wasn't sure it was official.

That said the specs of it, although good, don't look like they'll be quite on par as some custom tunes. Correct me if I'm wrong!

More air down the throat and possibly a new chip if it is covered under the warranty. I think Ford Performance will be coming up with some goodies this winter. First need to get car broke in just in time for winter in WI.

Anyone know of a CAI for the ST? Not many companies make one yet it seems. I'm keen to get one on

According to my book, the first thing to do to a forced induction motor should always be a tune. Then work out the rest of the engine mods.

Normally I would completely agree with you on that Nick, but because the fez is so new, there are hardly any choices out there at this stage when it comes to tuning, and I'm in no rush to throw the first tune in that becomes available. Actually I'm more keen on having a custom tune done to my liking.

For now, it's mainly cosmetic/handling things for me....except for exhaust....that can always be done :)

Good Call. I can see that. I have only ran OTS tunes when I was in need of a tune, and did not have the number of a Tuner to get a custom. OTS tunes are generally weak in the first place as they have to work in all 50. Not exactly optimized for the area, or your car.

The aftermarket is going to pick up the FiST soon. I think the jury is still out for the general public on whether or not the FiST is a viable tuner car. We just so happen to be what "they" call early adopters... ;)

After driving the Fiesta as my daily driver/weekend warrior, I would definitely say that it needs to open up it's pipes, aswell as a CAI, and tune. Probably make (220-240hp).

Yeah I agree with you, Cobb even said themselves that the FiST was already "high tuned" from the factory. Kinda made me think if 220ish is going to be its max point. Hopefully a nice DP will open her up some more coupled with a larger FMIC. We should get a little more out of her!

PS: Can't find the video for some reason now...
