Ermac, the '14 FiST

So I have been requested to make a build thread for my Fiesta ST, Ermac, so here it is.
I purchased it back in August 2014 as a birthday present to myself. It only fits since back in 2008, its what I did with the Kraken (my SVT). lol

So I was wanting to completely focus (no pun intended) my efforts with my SVT to make it a dedicated Auto-x and eventual circuit car. So I needed a new daily. 71Shadow (Travis) let me test drive is FoST and I loved it. But it was just a little too big and heavy for me. So I went to the dealership and wanted to test drive a Fiesta ST, since its about the same size as a mk1 focus. It was on the showroom floor and only had 46 miles on it. I saw it and fell in love.


I test drove it for about 12 miles and knew I had to have it. So we worked up the paperwork and I left a couple hours later with it.





3 days into ownership, my gf thought it would be a good idea to load up the hatch with grass since "its getting detailed on friday anyways. fml, but I did it anyways. lol




It didn't take long to start modding it.


both of these were made by a member on fiestastforum.com. I color filled the ST myself.

Then it came time to start ordering from Boomba

RMM, STS bracket, STS shifter cable bushings
Getting to work

Bushings installed

Shifter adapter bracket installed

RMM



Debadged it as well


Didn't take long to get a race downpipe either hahaha. two layers of header wrap to help keep temps down




swapped out the crappy filter for a green filter


deleted the sound symposer cuz that intake noise was annoying



Next mod was to get a STS arm. and while I was there, I replaced the bushings on the shifter as well



Then I lowered it on some H&R Super Street Springs. These are from the day of the install, so its settled more sense




Next up was to add some bass to the stereo. So, I used a Line Out Converter off the rear passenger speaker and got to work. I decided to use my shallow Kenwood Exelon 10" carbon glass sub and Kenwood Excelon mono amp. I wanted to keep it hidden to maintain my hatch space so here it is first built.



(and i got lazy for this step, but I carpetted it)


Being the LED fanatic that I am,
I had to add some lighting to the hatch



I then installed a MBRP exhaust and I LOVE IT!!!



and so here it is as it is now (well not exactly but i will get there)




Hyperwhite halogen bulbs and yellow fogs


And I have a few mods I have planned.
an aftermarket crashbar to pair with the largest and best intercooler for the FiST
A custom Tune
a splitter
ss brake lines
and retrofitted headlights




And now for the most recent pic.
So a little to the back story.
A few years back, my nephew was diagnosed as High Functioning Autistic. He has Asperger's Syndrome. Well my nephew and I are two peas in a pod and its kinda awesome. Well, after working with him so much, I ended up getting diagnosed with it as well. I always knew i was a little "off" but it was my normal so never really thought much about it. In hindsight.. holy crap, i had issues lol... but whatever... Well, I wanted to do something special with my car.. So I thought a lot about it and had different concepts, but ended up with this:

Now I am not done with it, but I will just add on to it from here. I already have some plans for interior trim pieces to go with the them.



All in all, a lot of progress in not even 10 months. hahaha. I hope you enjoyed my mini novel lol

Absolutely love those wheels and tires. And the FiST's look great with some lows. Kinda look funky at stock height. Looks great!

The TRD quickshifter is the same with all the bushings and the stuff under the intake but good shit. Still loving that wheel/tire setup.

Bbk, prolly not. Don't really want to push it with this one. A solid tune is about how much I really want to squeeze out of it.

EDIT:
its still just a daily driver to me.. but a fun one so not trying to go super crazy.
brakes are solid
turbo size is fine..
