We have the same passion for Fast Fords as you do, so we have decided it was about time we show you our cars, some complete show cars and some cars in development.

Fiesta ST180
Part 2 AS/AIRTEC Fiesta ST180 Eco boost Part 2 AS/AIRTEC Fiesta ST180 Eco boost
Last time we introduced our companies new demonstrator a Fiesta ST180, this time we start getting down to business, for over a decade we have been transforming fast ford engine bays into show stoppers & show winners. AutoSpecialists has moved into the Performance upgrade market but never forgotten where we came from and still develop new under bonnet detailing, its harder than it used to be, as most of the engine bay is covered in cheap black plastic covers. To give the Fiesta's engine bay that AS touch we first removed the engine cover and had it painted in gloss black and frozen white and finished the engine cover with a custom badge made by DMB graphics. Ford then made our life slightly easier than normal as most of the Mk7/7.5 engine bay detailing parts we already made fitted directly on! such as Header tank cover + cap cover, brake reservoir cap cover, fuse box cover and finally washer stopper. In development we have battery cover and under bonnet plates.

Part 3 AS/Airtec Fiesta ST180 - AS Induction kit Part 3 AS/Airtec Fiesta ST180 - AS Induction kit
With the success of our Focus ST & RS induction kits we knew that the Fiesta ST needed something special to improve induction noise and power. Once the original Airbox was removed we knew how much space we had to work with 'not much' Due to lack of space we had to rule out a fully enclosed Air box for the time being so the next best option was a open filter. We started with a tightly bent mandrel 90 degree alloy pipe, then cnc'd the Air flow sensor boss and welded the boss and securing bracket to the Alloy pipe, once in position we were straight on the phone the k&n technical department to find the perfect filter, once the filter had been chosen a pre-charger cover was also installed, the pre-charger covers are water resistant but still gives maximum gains. The charger cover is only pre-cautionary measure as our filter sits very high in the engine bay. On test we have seen up to 188bhp and standard cars producing their production figures of around180bhp, 5+bhp gains should be possible and higher gains on re-mapped cars http://www.autospecialists.co.uk/AS-Performance-ST-16-Eco-Boost---free-flowing-induction-kit-Product-1198.html

Part 1 AutoSpecialists & Airtec cooling Fiesta ST180 Demo car Part 1 AutoSpecialists & Airtec cooling Fiesta ST180 Demo car
Firstly I will like to say a big thank you for Fast ford for inviting us into their staff cars, hope you enjoy the next few months were we will be taking our 100% standard 2013 Fiesta ST 1.6 Eco boost and tuning it into a top class show stopper. Why did we purchase the Fiesta ST? We are complete Fordies and need our Ford fix, so when Mr Henry released that the ST was going ahead we were straight on the phone to our local ford dealer RT Rates to get ours ordered up, we ordered Blue, then changed it to Black and then finally settled Essex White 'Frozen White' ST2 with style pack, the style pack includes Anpherthite colour wheels, Red calipers and ST light up door sill protectors. The White works so well on the ST and will be one of the most popular colours for sure. How's it drive? Proper little pocket rocket, we love it! fells quick on twisty 'A' roads and no slouch on the motorway, great everyday drive and quick enough for the weekend fun. At 180bhp you will get used to the power fairly easily and eager for more, don't worry we are already working on plenty of power upgrades and all will be reviled in the upcoming months. Tell us something! Well lets say, Intercooler, Airfilter and remap are in test or development stages right now, The AS Airfilter kit sound insane!
