Ford Fiesta ST Gets 240 HP from GGR, Thanks to Cold Air Induction System

The highly competitive hot hatch market has spurred specialist tuner Graham Goode Racing (GGR) to push the limits of Ford's 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. In European specification, this produces 182 hp for the front wheels of the Fiesta ST to enjoy. However, a number of mods have increased that number to 240 hp. Watch out Golf GTI, because you might lose the next drag race!

GGR calls its power kit the "ST240 package" and this in turn start with the installation of a an all-new High Flow Direct Air Induction System. In combination with an ECU remap from Superchips, the result is 240 hp and 343 Nm (238 lb-ft) of torque, numbers which mirror those of a bigger Focus ST and its 2-liter turbo.

In its press statement, GGR explains why the air induction was important for the project. Apparently, the same air filter box as on a regular Fiesta is offered with the ST. This severely restricts the engine, as does the standard air filter outlet pipe.

To compensate for these shortcomings, the tuner has added a special High-Flow Direct Air Induction System and matching silicone air induction hose. Pop the hood and you're also going to be greeted by a K&N air filter.

But perhaps the best thing of all is that you don't need to pay Golf GTI money to get Golf GTI performance. The Leicester tuner will boost your pocket rocket for just £728.98, including installation and tax.
