Well I’m back again 😂🤣

so what’s happened after selling the RS in early Feb I bought a golf gtd had that for 6 weeks bought a house (finally) and then got really bored diesel power quickly, sold the golf and just used my family van for a few months and yesterday I bagged myself this little fiesta ST180

a few mods have already been done (saves me time and money) 

ITG induction kit, R sport crossover, larger inlet elbow on turbo, GFB recirc (to be changed for a forge unit), pro alloy big mount intercooler (again to be changed for a an airtec stage 3 unit), some nice gram lite alloys, Mountune lower springs, power-flex rear spring cups, cobra exhaust with decat, Mountune mud flaps, Mountune front splitter, and the most important one Maxd stage 2R remap with crackle over run making 245bhp and 400nm - quick car to say the least! Toke me by surprise 

so here’s some photos I’ll get more when I can and when I clean it (of course) 

and if you’ve followed my previous modified car threads/projects you’ll know this won’t be left alone 😂

Welcome back. I’d imagine with those mods it both sounds and goes pretty well!

Nice to see you back. Sadly that looks like the way you had to go when buying a house but at least had some fun before that time came. The fiesta ST must be decent on fuel too.

Yes it does sounds insane I have some videos I need to upload, it’s like a go kart nothing I’ve driven before, tbh I think it’s a better drive than the RS was strong words I know

Not a massive update today but new lights all round, ceuk led dipped and fogs alone with hi beam and chrome indicators but going to get the same super bright led indicators as I had on the RS 

also changed the number plate lights, all interior lights, fitted a Tune+ oil breather oil cap same as the rs one I had to stop crankcase pressure building and release pressure from the stock pcv system so less oil in the intake, also fitted a NB styling bonnet lifter not to happy with the bonnet gaps but will adjust when I have time

done the reverse bulbs to leds as well, fitted a throttle pedal spacer so I can heal and toe again make so mad down shifts happen 

not really too much else to report, for both catch cans coming to fit next week some time and a short colour coded Ariel from paint modz and that’s all for now.. will see where this one takes us

She cleans up well, needs a proper orbital polish and cut to get rid of swirls and found some horrible bumper rash on the rear quarters so paint touch ups required to sort this before rust sets in for the mean time it’s got 3 coats of wax to stop it oxidising for a couple of days

If you do machine polish the paint I recommend you seal it in with a ceramic sealant. 

Do get the autobeam performance indicators. They now have performance brake / sidelights in the same design as the indicators and people told me they are bright. Don't get the other performance brake lights as people were disappointed with those until the new one came out.

Couple little things added and arrived 

New sun strip for the local tuner and group I’m involved with

 throttle body spacer 

shifter base bushes 

shifter mount bushes 

new gear knob (stock one is ***** and messed up and cheaper to get a Si Co one instead)

fixed the rust patches myself not a bad fix but will get it re-sprayed professionally if I ever sold the car it won’t rust anymore and it’s covered for future protection

don’t worry the colour difference is only due to me cleaning the local area before rubbing down and painting 

also new catch cans for both PCV systems a must on any DFI engine, just waiting on new hoses and clips in case I break the ones on the car atm as I’d be stuffed with no being able to secure them

Do love seeing your username pop up in a new post. Gotta find out what funds all of these projects! Will the ST follow the RS Cosmetically (Carbon fibererrered) or do you have other plans? Might have you look into that gearstick setup, very clean.

Haha thanks, I work on a gas terminal and work 12 hour shifts and tend to do 60-120hours overtime a month so there’s the money lol a lot of time spent at work lol 

no so the plan with the looks is the get some more parts gloss black externally like the rear diffuser, and the wiper arm, may look at wing mirrors if it’s not to much hassle 

no carbon this time to expensive and time consuming and want to keep it very clean and stealthy so not many would know what lying under the hood. 

Removing the painted engine and fuse box cover for a stock set up, also had to remove the bonnet lifter kit due to getting a strut brace and you can’t fit both so looking at other design for the bonnet lifter 

It will be a daily driver but track toy eventually with x47R turbo and a decent lsd and clutch, full interior for functionality no cages etc just strut bracing underneath maybe looking at 16inch wheels, need to remove the mud flaps as I don’t like them and then go from there 🙂 

plenty of plans plenty to do, plenty of parts on the car already that need replacing although already changed from stock they are not the best you can buy so I want to change them for the better gear

Looking good. Did you have to cut the sun strip to fit? Was it easy to do? Also, is that i lift reverse gear knob? Looking for a black one myself in 6 speed.

Have you noticed any handling difference with that? Just curious as to me it's just a long bar.

The idea is that it stops any flex on the rear inner arch, have I noticed anything anything at road speeds would be placebo the only place you’d truly notice just one strut brace would be on track, like on my Focus ST when you have them all fitted you notice it on the road but it’s not track focused tbh 

the front strut one is the one you’d notice most on the road and I have that to install next

The Fiesta is a pretty rigid chassis and measured flex (by Mishimoto) is very little. The bar that provided the most immediate effect is a lower traction bar between the A arms. Having said that I have them all 😉

This is what I’ll get eventually I’ll have all the braces (except the rear strut as I need some boot space and it’s already at a premium with a smaller boot lol)

but Yh got the front upper to do 

then I have the lower 6 the lower 4 point which you’ve pictured but the extended version to the subframe, the exhaust tunnel and the rear 6 point along with the rear axle bar there’s a fair few to get tho 

 

todays task tho new discs pads braided lines rear sliders and motul 600 fluid
