    Ford Fiesta ST150 MK 6

    @350Butcher I've read as well on gearbox issues. I hope it will not be the case with mine. Although... Differential is very noisy I reckon bearing. I've tried with new oil but no luck. Anyway this morning I've ordered Quaife Atb with new shaft seals and bearing diff from Burton power. Other thing I noticed changing of gears is bit stiff. I found few videos on YT how to fix that. Second thing is power steering tank location. Oil is boiling very quickly so I will go with PSA relocator kit and power steering cooler. Afterwards is just all plug and play mods. But all in all really lovely car and quite fun for daily activities.

    Yeah I've been looking into their stiff too. Will see after I meet lad who has this Jam Sport 200 kit which comes together with "box" and ecu flashes.

    You know how it goes, trying to trick myself in all possible ways just to justify spending money on 12 year old small car

    Yeah majority is obsolete these days. I don't know just had a blast from the past and decided i want tuned ST.

    Yeah i was looking on it, but people say between Pumaspeed, Mountune and Jam sport, Puma has the weakest HP and worst fuel consumption. Either way im just looking for most budget friendly option.

    Few quick shots... After browsing and looking around lately on which route to go with tune up, from yesterday I'm very close in securing Jam Sport stage 2/3 not sure exactly on kit name which gives 200 bhp as per previous owner. Its second hand and has been removed from Fiesta ST containing Cossy intake manifold, larger throttle, cam's and Milltek exhaust with manifols sport cat, missing only rear silencer and Jam Sport ECU flash. Also the same owner has a Quaife helical diff. I really hope we will find reasonable price on all package which will keep us happy both. And here we go again same old story DD car turning into project.

    Arrived yesterday finally. So first thing will be full respray in original colour with front grille, front and rear fog lights in gloss black. Little body work is needed too which is not surprising since she spent all of the time in city. I'm afraid I will go full retard again with this car. One upgrade is leading to another and before you know it agian DD car is overturned in project car After respray I reckon we will start with engine mods. A suspension on the end.

    Ford Fiesta ST150 MK 6

    So.... I was in need for DD car, as with Z I went over the line in full retard mode and having car useful in certain conditions only. Looking for something budget friendly and yet enough fun for everyday hustle I turned to Fiesta ST. Why? I wanted NA car again got nostalgic for sound and revs, I didn't want to spend much money on something for daily abuse, didn't want FI car due to maintenance, and with all that in mind main of it's competitors have been seriously abused throughout years like Clio Sport or Ep3 Type R plus are still with price much more up than ST. In Croatia ST haven't been popular, more so it's much easier if found to be in good condition. Minding that all and having already Ford Focus mk3 wagon with diesels engine at home I decided for Ford again. Ford has proved to be reliable car with good driving capabilities. After a days of search abroad and at home I managed to find 2007 model from first owner with 90k KM on odo. Good thing is first owner, basic mods have already been done, Bilstein B8 with eibach springs, Focust ST rotors and calipers,KN air filter, downpipe 60mm and OZ wheel. On down side exterior is showing wears and tears of 11 years city driving and has LPG. Throughout quick search online it uses Duratec 2.0L engine with 150bhp which due to Eco norm 4 has been largely restricted. With basic intake and exhaust mods, larger throttle and remap figures of 180 bhp can be achived. For my intentions and purpose more than enough. As I see awaits me to find headers Milltek or similar, sport cat and the rest of exhaust i can do on my own. Servo liquid is prone to overheating and I found from Mountune cooling kit for that. Remap and that would be all. Small swifty daily to fight routine's. If any one has experiences with MK6 ST's what to look for, upgraded parts etc input will be more than welcome. Ah yes and hope by end month to have it on my driveway

    I simply can't stop thinking about Panigale v4S lately It is ridiculously expensive bike. Looks are by far the most sexiest out there Whole electronics package is insane, in power terms as well 214 bhp on crank, crank is counter rotating. Slide control, engine brake control, Ohlins electronical suspension settings, cornering abs etc quite of big list of goodies. With race kit and Akrapovic it outputs 226bhp I'm really stuck in between rock and a hard place. Im trying to find reasons to justify myself throwing such amount of money for motorcycle I've watched basically every review YT from MCN, 44 teeth and this bikes is really a game changer

    350z full underbody tray/diffuser

    We went with aluminium as it is the best bang for buck. CF is option too but will be costly. It will be properly secured so i really dobut that will be detached in any way.

    Not happy as I was looking to enter 11 sec as I did exactly 12.0 few years back while i had Crappysworth cam's up with bank 1 and bank 2 difference. But it was on different track though. ARB are set on softest from 2 available at front and on rear is in Middle. Comparing to OEM goood improvement. As far as uper control arm I do have Kinetix front upper arms but their max camber angel is -2° On rear I have theirs Traction and Toe arms. I think I will need to go with upgrade of those as they are a decent product for not too much modified car. Since all of my suspension components are hugely modified something more serious is needed. I wouldn't like to throw now fortune on it so what do you suggest would be best bang for buck

    Yeah had on last track day few of those "understeers" but in my case I think cause was that I was trying too much. I've noticed just a touch on gas pedal a car immediately tucks back in into turn. I'm lacking track experience so mainly first half of track day I just trying "too much". Since this is final set-up on chasis I still haven't explored it properly and got familiar of it capabilities. Definitely car has change a lot in positive way and is much sharper on steering. As far as car power goes it is just holding me back at track. I reckon on this track 450-500 bhp would be more than enough. Once you start flooring the pedal car is so fast, corner's are so close, you jeed to brake like maniac causing car to be all over the place. Good thing on other hand is that mainly in track i do not need yo go over 6500 rpm. A lot of grunt from 4500-6000 rpm to set some OK times without temperatures going wild. Another thing is seat height of my Sparco R100 on rails and low mount frames. I'm missing an inch of clearance with helmet on and is making me crazy. I need to fold back seat and once there i do not feel so comfortable behind the wheel
