Snappy Hatch // Turbo Fiesta on BC Forged

When it comes to modifying cars, we are often faced with tough decisions on whether or not to compromise things along the way. Should I install a custom-fitted turbo? Will it be safe? Reliable? But what should I do, then, if there’s really no bolt-on turbo kit in existence out there for my beloved car? Should I really just get a different car? What if I don’t want to?

1.6L engine on a little hatch might seem ample enough for most city car buyers, but not for Georgy. He’s determined to attain the maximum daily drivable output out of his manic Fiesta build.

How to get the highest possible HP output out of his 1.6L engine? Georgy turns to Evan from Eworx to find a turbo kit that can be installed to his car. Granted that there’s no bolt-on kit available on the market, Evan offered Georgy the Garrett GT 2554R turbo, a universally applicable turbo suitable for smaller displacement engines. Coupled with custom pipings, Evan then successfully managed to boost up the Fiesta. Supported with APEX-i intercooler, 500CC injectors, and Gizzmo boost controller, he made sure the Fiesta will maintain its daily drivability and reliability.

When it comes to the footworks, Georgy opted for a custom ordered set of BC Forged wheels. All custom made to fit the Fiesta and meet Georgy’s preferred finishings. Then, with some serious upgrades underneath the bonnet, Georgy realized that brakes will be his next crucial area to upgrade. A 6-pot ATS big brake kit came as his selected brakes of choice.

Among Georgy’s list of future mods are upgraded intake manifolds and a stronger/racing transmission. He’s looking forward to increasing the boost pressure of the turbo once these two upgrades have been installed. 280BHP is his next horsepower output target.

Summing it up, what Georgy has done seemed to have surpassed everyone’s expectations. He’s built quite possibly our country’s fastest daily driven 1.6L Fiesta. Here’s a link to the dyno results:
