Hey folks. This build is going to be just bolt-ons, so nothing too extraordinary. I want to eventually dyno it and show my results here in the thread as I progress through the build. The goal is eventually acquire all the parts included in the COBB Stage 3 Performance Kit, and also add functionality in other departments.

I grabbed up this Fiesta brand new in January and it's currently my daily driver. I drove a VW GTI, Focus ST, Scion FR-S, and even a Corolla iM, but none were nearly as exciting as this one. I went with a sunroof and cloth seats, since the bolstering on the sport seats would probably rip and tear easily. So far I've installed a COBB rear motor mount, a COBB shift knob, got the windows tinted, and put WeatherTech floor liners all around (freakin' amazing, highly recommend them).




First on the list is to improve comfort on these awful California roads, so I've elected to replace the 17x7 stock wheels with 16x7 Sparco Terra wheels and 205/45r16 Firestone Indy 500 tires when the factory-equipped Bridgestones go bad. I'll also be getting Bilstein B6 struts.

(I realize the picture shows a 5-lug wheel)


She'll also be getting black RallyArmor mudflaps, a COBB catback exhaust, and COBB cold air intake soon-ish. Once the 33,000 mile warranty is up (I estimate by December), I will be getting the AccessPort tuner, an intercooler, and the COBB performance downpipe.

Not a bad start. Know who else drives a Fiesta? Ken Block.

Man I wish the Fiesta R cars were road legal. This car is a blast, but it's still wrong wheel drive...
