Fiesta ST 150 Turbo

Instagram:

I am a construction/Groundcare machinery engineer 

Since I could drive at 17 I've always been interested in modifying cars, I've had many different cars that I have modified and sprayed over the years then I had my first son and I gave it up for a few years so I brought a little st150 as a runaround but at the time I didn't have any intention of modifying it.

Then I decided that it was a bit boring so I started to change a few things lol bigger wheels splitters as you can see, then I decide it needed more power so I started on the engine bigger cams, manifold induction kit exhaust and so on, I had it mapped it was running 185bhp but that wasn't enough so I decided to do a turbo conversion with a td04 turbo which was then running 280bhp which was quite quick, the engine and gearbox decided to go bang.

I decided to rebuild the engine to a fully forged hi-spec engine and run more power so it's now running a healthy 406 Bhp on a Garrett turbo. The car is pretty much how I want it now with maybe a bigger intercooler and injectors to run a bit more power later on.

I think the colour scheme and the turbo build make this one very unique car .and a lot of the parts are custom made, I've done 95% of the work myself.
