You feel a noticeable difference. The largest reason is because out of the factory, Ford limits boost and torque in gears one and two to help prevent wheelspin. The Cobb tune removes that, allowing you to hit full boost in first and second. If it is dry and warm you can put the power down, but if its wet, it is spin city.

Luckily for you, if you are looking to go stage 3, there are a lot of brand choices for parts now so you're not forced to go with high priced brands such as Cobb and Mountune.

Join up FiestaSTforum.com, one of the most informative places out there. They've got sticky threads with all the performance parts you'd ever imagine. Everything from intercoolers, downpipes, intakes, and catbacks.

The FiST can also benefit a lot from a rear motor mount [RMM]. Boomba Racing and CPE are the two most popular in that regards.

Nice! I really like these cars.

Love it. Puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. Sure its not a straight line car. But it turns on a dime and pulls nicely in all gears.

As I've stated many times, I love my ST. And even Cobb's safe tunes add a lot of pleasure to your drive.

Nice job! I probably would've been in one of these if I didn't want the slightly more cargo space the FoST offered. You really cant go wrong w/ either one.
