Decent car to change to - one of the best all round smaller hot hatches. Size and profile similar to EP3, and it is lighter.
I would expect Mountune to only be slightly faster, I think they claim 6.4 to 60mph and if your car has Flashrpo as well, did you run group N map or custom?
Limited 1st and 2nd hampers those two gears, annoying, but custom mapping is an option one day I suppose.
Handling very good for Fiesta, likely better than OEM EP3/FN2, but it is a lighter more modern car. But on the road this difference is small and IMO hard to make use of anyway. I didn't know the Fiesta had an E diff though! Is it any good compared to a full mechanical LSD?
I test drove Fiesta ST a long time ago, agree it didn't sound good and that was with the sound symposer. Really needs exhaust and or intake to wake it up. Mountune airbox probably doesn't sound any different. Maybe put symposer back in?
I like the fiesta and down a b road the small size helps the fun element a lot. I even like the fish mouth grill.
