IDAFC21 Im sure it does. I already drive like enough of a knob in the focus. Its just always so eager to go go go. I cant imagine what Id be like in the fiesta

I hear ya. But the FIST just corners a tad bit nicer :-). Im also looking at rim options. I do like these.

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

How is the stage 2 tune?
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.

blueoval4life So have not updated this thread in a while. But I have installed the following things to make my FIST more enjoyable

- Cobb Lowering Springs
- Cobb FMIC
- Boomba Racing motor mount
- High flow air filter
- Cobb Stage II tune.
- 20% Tints @ChicagoAutoPro

Maybe next Ill put a nicer sounding exhaust. Hrmmmm...

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.

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.

I've also got a BOV on the car for the ricey side of me lol. In the future I'd like to do springs and a front splitter. Oh and I've got an exhaust because this little 1.6 likes to make crackles and pops.

The car is a blast, I've had mine almost a year now and have put close to 20k miles on mine. You'll definitely enjoy yours!

Thirdgen89GTA The shorter wheelbase really makes it rotate compared to the Focus.

I'd take a Fiesta ST over a BRZ any day of the week.

Now, you need the GTX2867R turbo swap kit for it.

I believe that was the same assessment Top Gear had when they drove the Fiesta. A little go kart.

I actually owned a non ST focus for 3 years. So I was familiar with a lot of aspects of that vehicle. I mainly went went with Fiesta as I enjoy the styling and the lighter weight vehicle. But really the man factor was I wanted a very low payment. Something I could not obtain in the Focus ST.

I completely understand. Luckily we have another vehicle the wife drives that has 3 rows for when we needs tons of space. The wife calls it the clown car. I can fit my two kids and her in it. I am 6'4 and kids are 11 and 7 years old. She is reminded off clowns stuffed into a mini or something at a circus. Honestly I am comfortable in it.
