Can The Ford Fiesta ST Handle A 245HP Tune?

UK tuner Puma Speed has taken on the new Ford Fiesta ST and raised its power considerably.

Thanks to an engine remap and some other changes, it managed to lift the output of the turbocharged 1.5-liter three-pot to 245hp and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque.

We don’t have any 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) or top speed numbers to work with, but the stock ST’s 1.5 turbocharged three-cylinder that pushes out  197hp (200 PS / 147 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds and tops out at 232 km/h (144 mph).

This Fiesta ST has welcomed a Miltek exhaust system that also improves the soundtrack of the car, making it sound like a BMW M4 – well, at least that’s what the reviewer claim, so we’ll let you be the judge of that after hearing the car in the video.

In addition to the pops and bangs, bystanders are going to notice this Ford Fiesta ST thanks to the flashy exterior wrap. The question is, can the Fiesta ST handle the extra 48 horsepower or has the tuner gone a bit too far? Find out by watching the video below, but try to ignore the reviewer’s sudden bursts of enthusiasm while you’re at it.

    I usually earn approximately $18,000-$19,000 every month through the internet. After working so wholeheartedly, I ended up losing my job in my company where I have given loads of years. I truly needed a reliable source of income. I am not into “get rich overnight” package deals as you can see all over the net. Those are all kind of ponzi referral marketing schemes in which you are required to first make interested customers and then sell a product to friends and family or any person so that they will be in your team. On line job offers amazing benefits such as I am always home with my spouse and children and can relish loads of leisure time and go out for holidays.

      Well, it’s a FWD hatchback. Besides, they don’t need a lot of power to be fun.

      • TheAmerican

        True. More power would probably increase understeer too in that thing
