Solid axles get a bad rap.
Lets start a rumor mill. What do you think will be available from Ford?
*Turbo kit? Thats my guess.
carbon fiber to tape over the trim.
unless they offer a RWD conversion and Revoknuckles, I'm not interested.
It seems like Ford was considering the turbo kit as a factory option, but if that doesn't pan out I would expect Ford Racing to have it.
Ford already offers "go faster" parts for the Fiesta in the U.K. (not sure about the rest of Europe) through a company called MoonTune. The British mags that have tested MoonTune "tweaked" Fiestas and Focuses have really liked them. I can't find MoonTune's web address, but I suppose a search would turn it up. You might also want to try a search of MoonTune at the sites for the British mags EVO, CAR, and PERFORMANCE CAR.
BTW, the Euro 1.6 Fiesta is rated at 116 hp.

That would be Mountune Performance.
I tried looking for MoonTune, and didn't get very far.
BTW, MoonTune is owned by Roush, so that's the connection to Ford Racing Parts. A look at the Roush website will show you that they aren't offering any Fiesta parts yet....it is a bit early, but they MAY decide to add them in the future (he said, crossing his fingers).
A red Fiesta is my current screen saver, I got the pix off of the Blue Oval News website. You might also want to check with them from time to time for Fiesta news, as well as Fiesta-specific websites.

Why? You want rear wheel steer? Revoknucke eliminates torque steer with FWD.
I was scratching my head on that one, too.
