MK7 FIESTA ST
After owning a Mk6 Fiesta ST and a Mk7 ST-1, and after a long and uncomfortable winter in an MX-5, it’s not surprising Tom wanted another Fiesta ST. This time he opted for the fully-loaded ST-3 in Frozen White.
It didn’t take long for Tom to fit the Fifteen52 Tarmac alloys that had previously graced his Mk6 ST. At the same time the ride height was dropped on lowering springs and the stock intake was replaced with something offering better performance.
But being a fan of Fifteen52, Tom couldn’t help but notice the wide arch kit they offer for the ST. So when he found himself sent to the ‘States for a work trip it was the perfect opportunity to bring home some goodies to give his ST some extra girth - even if he did get some funny looks at airport check-in!
Sadly the US only get the Mk7 Fiesta ST in a five-door model, so it took a fair amount of modifying – along with a bit of courage to cut up his daily driver! – to get the arches to fit properly. Coupled with some coil-overs and spacers to fill out the new found width, this ST now looks much more aggressive.
Finishing off the look are some Triple-R splitters, gloss black plastics, and tinted headlights.
Ensuring it’s got some bite to backup that bark is a Milltek exhaust, mountune MP215 kit, and Turbosmart blow-off valve. More is never enough, however, and Tom already plans to fit a hybrid turbo and larger intercooler to get that EcoBoost really screaming.
