Hi, I’m Dan I’m pretty new here. I have a 2017 Ford Fiesta se 1.0 EcoBoost. I’m trying to find tasteful mods to do to my car, but every website I go to is for the ST model. Does anyone know if the parts are able to fit? And if not, what are some good websites for the 1.0 base model? I’m new to the car scene as far as nodding my own car and really don’t know where to start. So any advise would be helpful. Thank you.

I have a 2016, st rear sway bar, st lower engine mount and plan on doing the upper front strut. Also running st springs on stock shocks. If you are looking for stuff check out pumaspeed and the euro mountune. I have ordered a lot form both with zero issues.

I have an entire catalog of ST parts I've swapped over to my 2011 SES.

Starting from the front (all of these parts are listing as being for the ST but work on the 1.0L turbo and 1.6L non-turbo):
ST200/ Mountune airbox.
Mountune lower motor mount.
Powerflex 'street' bushings for both upper mounts.
OEM Fiesta ST cat-back exhaust
Full Fiesta ST suspension (OEM shocks and struts, lower control arms, tie-rods and knuckles).
Mountune Fiesta ST sport springs.
Eibach Fiesta ST rear sway bar.
Full Fiesta ST front brake setup (calipers, rotors and dust shields).
Lapp Racing rear disc conversion kit (supplemented with OEM Fiesta ST calipers, rotors and dust shields).
Fiesta ST side skirts.
FIesta ST rear wing.
Fiesta ST steering wheel

....I'm sure there are some others I'm missing, but that's what I can think of off the top of my head.

I have a 2017 SE hatchback. Can any aftermarket catback exhaust for the ST fit my car?
Fun fact I learned doing my header install this past weekend - the standard and ST exhausts are probably not 100% compatible - the first flange on the ST exhausts is at a slightly different angle than the standard exhaust - but they are close enough that the flex pipe on the end of the stock header is able to negate the difference.

But if you even install an aftermarket header WITHOUT that flex pipe wiggle room - you end up with this ..... whoops!

So in answer to your question - it's close, and I'm not sure that every aftermarket exhaust for the ST will fit, but I know the stock ST exhaust does.

I had no fitment issues installing an ST exhaust on our NA 1.6.

Tried doing the same on our 1.0 and it was not a bolt on due to the unique down pipe. A simple cut and reweld would have resolved that mismatch.

Yup, I had the stock ST exhaust bolted on for several years. The problem pictured above only occured when I installed the high flow header that had no flex pipe. It has since been remedied.

Im noticing that the tubing diameter for aftermarket ST exhausts are mostly 2.5 inches where the ones for the base model are all 2.25 inches. So I wonder what difference the 0.25 inch would make. The only SE catback exhaust I am finding online that has not been discontinued is the magnaflow.

Flowmaster DBX 819115 has been discontinued

Borla 140525 has been discontinued

Ford Racing M-5230-FAC has been discontinued

which is why I was asking about the aftermarket ST exhausts.

No difference in performance on our cars. Unless you want to spend the extra $$$ on those brands, the factory ST is hard to beat. It has a nice growl, is stainless steel, and can be had for cheap. Keep in mind it is actually a touch deeper sound on our NA motors as the ST motors has the turbo in the exhaust stream

How'd you install the side skirts?

Check this out at Amazon.com
Side Skirt Retainer Clip with Sealer, fits for Ford (Pack of 20) Amazon.com: Side Skirt Retainer Clip with Sealer, fits for Ford (Pack of 20): Automotive

The company I used to get all of my parts from in UK is out of business now - but I believe I had something like those - but in a Ford supplied kit. You'll need 3 or 4 of those each side to affix the skirt to the UNDERSIDE of the car. If you look unde the side of the Fiesta just past the pinch weld you'll see this row of black rubber plugs. You don't need to remove all of them - maybe every other one - but that is where you pop those round white retainers into.

There is a little self tapping screw that holds the skirt in the back - inside the rear wheel well. And the end cap to hold the skirt in place in the front wheel well.

The actual STs have.... 8-10 little holes in the rocker panel to hold little plastic rivets that attach behind the skirt to keep it tight against the body. I just ran a strip of double sided 3M trim tape along the top edge of the skirt and pressed it tight below the doors. I'm not worried about it ever coming off, heh.

Will the rally innovations Ford Fiesta st side splitter fit on my 2018 Ford Fiesta se ?
Just went and looked them up! The ST side splitters they offer are dependent on the presence of the side skirts. So they won't work on an SE without the side skirts.

Depends on how old we are talking... the U.S. Escort used 4x108 from 1981 to 1990. It changed to 4x100 when they were Ford Laser (Mazda) based.
