Moved this to a more appropriate forum for you matey! smile

What you looking to improve about the car? everything, or something in particular (eg. performance, asthetics etc..)?

Have you sorted the cold air feed directly to the filter?

possibly uprate the HT leads or grounding looms to improve the overall electrical conductivity of the system.

i'd go for a exhaust for the time being, none of the custom ones though just a simple system, then a 200cell sports cat (so you have no problems with the emissions)

you could try the likes of the mondeo owners club for ideas on a remap but i think the engine is a black top ecu (same as the fiesta st) which is not easy to map (dreamscience has done a remap for the st so you maybe inluck)

the cold feed will help but imho i'd change it for a panel filter with a better cold air feed.

Sorry matey, but I really think you bought the wrong car for performance, of enhancing its current performance frown

The ST or at least a 2.0 would have more punch.

An induction kit is a start, though anything short of a full exhaust will make minimal differences. Basic principals are air + fuel = Power. The more efficeiantly the car can get those 2 together per cycle the better.

Dont know much about the new engines, though the Duratec engine is ment to be one of the best blocks around, it just what people do to them that makes them go so well....

personally mate,i'd only do a panel filter and an exhaust (end i'd do those more for the noise than the "performance" gain. tuning small N/A engines on the cheap is massively over hyped
