After searching could not find my answer...
Does the FoST engine bolt right in the FiST without modifications?

Why molest a perfectly good new car lol I would guess it wouldn't bolt right now without some modifications. I saw a post awhile ago from Europe where somebody did that and it looked like a lot of work.

Haha ok just checking. I could only dream to swap that motor in there and your right anything is possible after warranty is up. I'm sure it will be done

The thing that actually got me thinking on my ride home from work last night was this;
Once these cars have been out for a year or so and we start to see parts crop up in the salvage yards, who's going to be the first nut to take a Fiesta sedan and swap in the engine, ecu and upgraded suspension bits from the ST hatch? That is a project I'd watch with great interest.

This is very intesting idea.

Now that we can tune the 11s and 12s things might get interesting...

Is this official now? Do we have a company offering tuning support for the early mk7's? I know I've seen Cobb and FSwerks talk about the ST but haven't seen anything for the standard models

Nevermind, went back and check the Faction forums and I see the thread about SCT now. Looks like I'll be making a call to McNews early next year!

I hope this fiSt helps bring tuning to the base models.
To get the same performance as an ST from a base model you will probably spend the same amount of money all together on the car and parts as an ST. Might as well use the money you save for parts on a down payment for a base ST.

This is true but be nice option for people who still have a base fiesta.

SCT is offering custom tuning at their dealerships, no hand held device though. It's up over on the faction. Only 11 and 12 Fiestas are currently supported so far. I wish I lived closer to FSWerks! :)

Pretty much any engine can go in any car given enough effort, I've seen the Mk1 Focus with everything from flat four Subaru power to inline 6s to 32v 4.6 Cobra drivetrains.

That said, I don't see much point in swapping the FoST 2.0 for the FiST 1.6. The 1.6 should prove more than capable of putting down more power than the chassis will ever be able to get to the ground.

I know a guy in Wisconsin with a Mk1 Focus turbo that has made as much as 600whp on the rollers but trying to get that to the ground on the street is an exercise in futility.
