Now that our 2012 Ford Fiesta is handling properly, thanks to wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades, it is time to up the little four-cylinder's power output. This quest for more power took us to one of our favorite hangouts—Superchips in Sanford, Florida.

B-Spec allows only simple bolt-on engine modifications, so for our testing, we brought along a K&N drop-in filter, a Steeda cold air intake, and a Ford Racing cat-back exhaust system. The end result: an increase of seven horsepower and six lb.-ft. of torque.
