Hello guys I am happy to announce that I finally got in all my parts for my 16 FiST and can't wait to get them installed, only thing left is to upgrade the turbo and originally I was going for the GTX2867R Turbo from FSWERKS but then I came across the Mountune MR265 kit that has a Hybrid turbo, all my friends say to stay away from it but never really give a clear reason why, I know the GTX2867R Turbo will probably give more power and all but I don't want to completely destroy my tires even with the slightest of gas as I am still using this a every day car, tho I still want to supe it up.

Any suggestions or though on this matter would be great, I can't wait to get everything installed and all the styling done to it so that I can upload the video of it to show it off.

I stayed with the stock turbo with all the other mods and there is NO turbo lag at all! Instant power in all gears! To me, bigger turbos are just for bragging rights! That's why I stayed with stock!

One of the reasons I got a FiST is that it gets better mileage than bigger cars, though not much. I totally understand the appeal of MOAR POWER, but you have to get on it to get that rush. More power means more wear, and worse mileage, when you swap turbos. See if you're happy with just a tune and some bolt-ons. I like mine with a big torque bump, along with a bit more top end with just a tune. If you plan to keep it, just go with that. If you aren't satisfied, there are several options for more turbo. If I were doing it, I'd wait until this is on sale: http://www.fiestastforum.com/forum/threads/16486-VTT-X-Panda-Motorworks-Cast-Fiesta-ST-Turbo-upgrade

P.S: I know this is an old thread. This is general observation from my perspective. Do what makes you happy.

Excellent advice, and i'm right about no one coming here, too. This forum is dead. What are you? 12?
