We decided to go back to our first UK demo car Fiesta and build a "pocket rocket" Fiesta ST, the hot version of the best selling car in the UK. We just picked up this lovely little 15 plate example in a pristine white, and progress is going well in 2020!
Welcome ST 04 STD .... You can follow progress here on this blog or also on our dedicated instagram account for the fezza: @ST_eeda
She's based "oop north" so expect to see her at her new "home away from home" at Motorsport and Performance being fettled, tweaked, tuned and generally being given lashings of love and care!
We have a lot planned over winter 2019 into 2020, and what better thing to do to distract from miserable winter nights than to see what presents arrive for the Fiesta.... Let's hope she's been good!
To start off the mods, we had to get her a little bit lowered and sharpen up the handling a bit more, so we installed some Eibach springs and a Steeda Rear Strut Tower Brace. Looks wise a Steeda Sidewinder decal and Windscreen banner made sure people knew that the pocket rocket was repping Steeda!
Of course we are huge believers in #WheelsMakeTheCar which is why we work with two killer wheels companies OZ Racing and Velgen Wheels. When it comes to the pocket rocket fezza, then we recommend OZ Racing's Sparco line up of wheels and on our own car we couldn't wait to get on some 17" Sparco Trofeo 4 in bronze, wrapped in Michelin performance rubber to optimise grip and performance.
We think you will agree she looks cracking now, and she needed the sounds to match, so our friends at CP-E sorted out the catback sounds with a full "Titan" system... Watch the vid to see the system and listen to it in all its glory!
Next up Diode Dynamics have been adding their touch to "shed some light" on the project...boom boom!
Some practical upgrades like the reverse LEDs add "Go back! go back!" illumination, while the all new S3 pod spot lights add some sexy yellow up front colour and AMAZING luminance! More to come from Diode Dynamics too!
Our friends at CP-E weren't done with just their beautiful catback. We also added a race red CP-E Fiesta ST Ram Air intake for more power baby!
Including inlet tube and plexiglass covered airbox this is a sexy and effective system, and due to the resized expanded piping requires a tune which the guys at MAP got stuck into with their HP Tuners hardware and hub dyno!Also to complement the lovely bronze Sparco Trofeo 4s and upgrade our retardation abilities we swapped the tired old OEM brakes for DBA front slotted discs and new Hawk pads all round. And shot a little video to show it!
