Hav­ing pre­vi­ously owned a Mk6 ST with moun­tune’s MR200 kit, Ben had al­ways wanted to take things to the next level. So when he saw a su­per­charged ST with full ser­vice his­tory and low mileage, he knew it was his time to make the jump. Hav­ing come from the MR200 you’d have thought the 300bhp the car was al­ready push­ing out would have been enough, but straight away he got the car booked in at Jam­sport to have the en­gine in­ter­nals re­placed with forged goodies, larger di­am­e­ter pipe work fit­ted, beefier in­jec­tors, and a higher flow­ing fuel pump in­stalled. All along with a new remap to make the most of it all!

At the same time he added an MTX75 gear­box from the Mk1 Fo­cus RS, com­plete with Quaife ATB diff, Mk1 Fo­cus RS Brembo brakes, BC Rac­ing coil-overs, and Team Dy­namic Pro Race 1.2 wheels. He then pro­ceeded to strip the in­te­rior, re­plac­ing the stock ST seats with Co­bra buck­ets. This makes this ST one hell of a hot hatch! Per­fect for carv­ing up B-roads and em­bar­rass­ing a lot of big­ger ma­chin­ery.

Ben’s al­ready think­ing about up­grad­ing the cur­rent C30 su­per­charger to a larger C38 to reach a lofty 400bhp, along with a full rollcage to keep him safe and add some rigid­ity to the shell. A set of semi slicks and this would be one se­ri­ous track toy! All the while be­ing a su­per clean taste­fully mod­i­fied ex­am­ple of the Mk6 Fi­esta ST that would equally look at home en­ter­ing a Show ’n’ Shine com­pe­ti­tion as it would cock­ing a wheel on the way to clip­ping an apex on track! POWER: 332bhp

QUICK SPEC: 2.0-litre ST Du­ratec, forged in­ter­nals, Cos­worth in­let, 60mm throt­tle body, Rotrex C30 su­per­charger, 2.5-inch boost pipes, Airtec in­ter­cooler, up­rated fuel pump, larger in­jec­tors, cus­tom remap by Jam­sport, BC Rac­ing coil-overs, Fo­cus RS MTX75 ‘box with Quaife ATB, 4-pad­dle He­lix clutch, Mk1 Fo­cus RS Brem­bos, Team Dy­namic Pro Race 1.2 al­loys

Ben’s su­per­charged ST was the most pow­er­ful Fi­esta on the dyno all day! 332bhp in a Mk6 Fi­esta is go­ing to be a lot of fun!
