I think, I am no Ford nut,they like Mk6.5!!! :lol:

Welcome tho!

For ST conversion or any upgrade of power, go first for grip and stopping!

So sort them brakes and handling out first...insurance always like that too.

The actual conversion I dont believe is a huge thing, if you can get a Fiesta ST engine and box i assume :)

i im aware i am going to change the rear brake hubs to st150 rear discs and brakes for stopping upgrading the front as well not sure what to yet and also getting in on coil overs

Cool, dont skimp on the tyres too, could ruin all efforts!

Oh, and coming from my buds point of view, ensure all bolts are correctly torqued up and that you have the suspension (if going with coil overs) set up proffesionally.

Otherwise there aint no point in just wacking them in and set the height!!
