I welcome any and all aftermarket support for this little car. I think it is an absolute blast to drive and has some very good potential. The 155hp package is $2888.79 when converted to USD before shipping charges. I would not pay that much, but if roush/mountune decided to offer the parts separately over here, I would definitely pick up some cams and better flowing exhaust manifold. :) I agree that 5hp is quite a bit in a little car like this. It might not seem like much, but with a vehicle that has a very low curb weight, I can see it making quite a difference. Here is hoping that aftermarket companies like FSWERKS will see the potential in this vehicle and will continue research and development of aftermarket performance products.

I emailed Roush to ask if they were going to support the fiesta in North America. My $ is on, not at this time, or no response at all...

FSWERKS has an intake and exhaust in development, it just seem to have fallen off the face of the earth.

Yeah I remember them having it a while ago, but it seems to have disappeared. That's why I said continue to develop performance accessories. They had it close to completed, then it was just gone.. I have plenty of FSWERKS parts on my focus, and I was really hoping to continue that tradition with this car. Ultimately, I really prefer Ford Racing parts b/c I really like the "super stock" or factory modified look. Usually seems to give a much better quality/cleaner look IMO. But if I have to go aftermarket, I want a company that prides itself in quality products.

Captinmorbid: Please post any response you get from Roush. I would like to know what they have to say.

I also emailed Steeda regarding an SCT supported tune. Their response is as follows. Please read the email thread from the bottom up:

Subject: RE: Fiesta Tune?

The best thing the Fiesta community can do is back us up and petition SCT directly to continue development. We need multiple voices, not just ours.

Wow, that really is unfortunate. There seems to be quite a bit of interest. Oh well, I am sure you will keep us posted. Thanks.

Unfortunately no time soon, despite our lobbying efforts SCT has decided to abandon Fiesta tuning software development at this time.

Hi, quick question.

Will you be offering any aftermarket support for the 2011+

I don't think they could have explained it better. It seems with a response like that we could hope for the near distance "never" future?

:eek:
Ha ha, almost like they thought I was asking where a dealership was, as though I am smart enough to send them a question to the contact link on their web page, but too dumb to hit the locate dealer button! Or it's an automated response algorithm confused by a non-general question. I'm actually surprised they responded at all.

I am going to call my nearest ROUSH dealership (Apple Ford of Shakopee, Minnesota) to see if they would be able to get some of this mountune performance equipment for the Fiesta sent over, and see how much the prices would run...

Will let you all know what I find out.
