Ford Fiesta Lands in America! Performance Packs for your street car are coming!

Lets start a rumor mill. What do you think will be available from Ford?

*Turbo kit? Thats my guess.

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.

Thanks, mistanfo.

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.
