S1600 Upgrade Options?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

First off I'll say I'm completely new here and apologize if anything like this has come up before:

I've had my Fiesta S1600 for nearly a year now and it's been fantastic. (White w Blue Stripes)

However It does feel a little gutless at times and I was wondering what available upgrades there are/recommended companies or sites to visit?

I'm not sure if the Mountune kits even apply because my car is already the 134PS version and I've been on Pumaspeed who offer a few bits like induction kits/exhaust system/manifold. However I have no DIY experience or competence so would need workshop fitting. Cheltenham - up north would need to be worth it!

Basically I have my sights on:

Upgraded brakes - I've had a few fiesta's (Mk5/Mk6/Mk7) and they all feel underbraked.

Induction Kit - I may even be able to do this myself! And it's relatively cheap.

Anyone know if I can get it chipped or remapped? I've not got much to spend and really don't know where to look :/

Also I've searched for tyres that fit for when I need to change them and I only get back 2 results?

Many Thanks for any help or advice.

You can get the Moutune kit but it only makes financial sense to go for the MP155 rather than 140.

They'll be releasing a big brake upgrade in a couple of weeks (Ford Fair)

There's plenty of tyres available in 205/40/17?
