    Angry Party car - now with more party

    Figured I'd start a build thread here, since I feel like it's going to be an adventure.

    PXL_20210904_055302254.jpg

    First, let me introduce you to The Party Car AKA the Angry Jellybean AKA a 2016 Ford Fiesta ST. It's purple and loud and fun to drive. It was fully bolted with a hybrid turbo tuned by Stratified Auto out of Vancouver BC, and we put down 272 hp and 310 tq on RCTS' dyno last summer.

    The car had:
    Wheels and Tires
    Bilstien B14 Coilovers
    17” Rotiform RSE wheels
    Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires
    Mickey Thompson racing slicks/track rims

    Performance/engine
    Cobb accessport with protune from Stratified automotive controls
    Whoosh motorsports hybrid turbo
    Forge motorsports diverter valve
    Mishimoto performance intake
    Turbosmart 11psi wastegate
    Velossa tech ram air big mouth intake with lit kit
    CP-e x-flex rear engine mount
    cp-eTM delta CoreTM Front Mount Intercooler
    cp-eTM NexusTM Ford Fiesta ST Cat Back Exhaust
    Whoosh V3 performance downpipe (3")

    Last fall I blew it up at Rad Torque (fka Castrol), I really wanted to beat the guy in a Subaru again - and I did. I managed to get my best time so far, a 13.6 at 103 mph. Not bad for FWD 1.6l Turbo.

    How does one blow up a Fiesta ST?
    Well, they don't really like when you shift from 4 to 3 at 160 km/hr - 9000 rpms may work in Honda engines, not so much in Ford engines.

    Towed it back to the house and started the teardown - it was a slow process since I've never done an engine swap in my life, so I took my time taking things apart and learning.

    What was the damage?
    So far, we know that all the valves are bent and I've broken the cam shaft strap over cylinder 4 - it's definitely not happy. We plan on taking the block apart further after we get the engine in from the builder.

    So, what may you ask is going in the car?
    Another 1.6 Litre Ford engine, however - this one is special. Ordered from Mountune in California - it is their 1.6l MRX engine - fully race prepped and forged, good for up to 400 hp.

    IMG_3690.jpg

    Block:
    mountune Forged Pistons and rings
    mountune Forged H-beam Connecting Rods
    mountune ICR Head Gasket
    Cylinder Support System Block Upgrade
    ARP Head Studs
    Mountune Oil Control Baffle
    Balanced and blueprinted

    Head:
    Piper stage 2 camshafts
    Supertech valves and valve springs


    ... but since I went full send, why not actually go full send.

    We have this pile of parts waiting to be installed.

    IMG_20220526_204429_625.jpg

    In this pile:
    AIRTEC Motorsport TUBULAR EXHAUST MANIFOLD - custom ceramic coated
    Whoosh Intercooler Boost Hose Kit
    Mishimoto Upgraded Radiator and Fan Shroud Assembly
    Wavetrac Limited Slip Differential
    Spec Aluminum Flywheel
    Spec Clutches Stage 2+ Sprung clutch
    Custom shift boot from Billetworkz
    POWERFLEX Fiesta ST Front Upper Engine Mount
    POWERFLEX Fiesta ST transmission mount insert
    Whoosh Aluminum Shifter Base Bushings
    Whoosh Transmission Cable Bracket Bushings

    At this current point in time, we're waiting on the engine.

    20220506_184344.jpg

    If you managed to see the car at Driven - yep, it didn't have an engine and yep, we trailered it in.

    We're hoping that the engine will come in any week now, and then the fun begins!

    Awesome. Great job

    Wow, one of my favorite cars, and what you've done, and are planning to do, is fantastic.

    I'll be watching this thread, big time.

    Are you the awesome person that organized a track day at Stratotech many years ago perhaps for a breast cancer cause? If so, you are awesome. I got so many laps in at that thing, I burned my brake pads off!
    All the best!

    Edit:
    Are larger fuel injectors possibly missing from your list?

    Like.

    If you're indeed missing fuel injectors, Joel @ Canadian Performance Injection is awesome to deal with, local to Edmonton.

    Awesome! Nothing like a money shift at the drag strip to ruin your budget for the year though. Good to see you're still around!

    Sadly nope, this is not me

    However yes, larger injectors may become something we do down the line, it’s definitely on the radar

    Hondas do not usually live through a money shift that high either, the sudden unload seems to fuck stuff up.

    I can't complain about somebody spending stupid amounts of money on a car. Unless you don't do a big smokey burnout with the new motor, then I will complain.

    So we’ve been waiting on the engine since pretty much November last year, we’re finally seeing some motion on it. Supply chain issues are a bitch. We had been waiting on supertech for the intake and exhaust valves, and they’re still delayed. We chatted with Mountune last week and they’re going to swap in the OE Ford valves. This shouldn’t reduce the potential output or reliability at all.

    The engine is going into their build shop this week and shipping soon!

    While we wait, we’re prepping the shop and doing little projects around the car (like underglow because that’s trendy again…)

    Thanks for the amazing response guys, I’m really excited to see (and hear) this thing.

    Well after 7 months of waiting and supply chain BS, a crate showed up while I was in a meeting
    PXL_20220622_190520099.jpg

    I've never recieved a crate before and it was so neat! It's nearly as large as my car and DHL was nice enough to bring a pallet jack and a truck with a lift.

    Was really surprised about the duties too, we thought we'd be paying over $1500 on the engine and only paid around $400

    PXL_20220622_195705567.jpg

    Once the crate was opened, this is it! It's pretty tiny in there, but it looks so fresh and clean.

    Mountune also sent us a bunch of gaskets and rings for the engine install, so we'll be doing inventory of the parts we've been amassing from Ford and the parts we got from Mountune.

    Snapchat-1455077442.jpg

    I'm off on vacation for the next week and a bit, so this evening was a planning evening. We took some time to brainstorm everything we needed to do to get the car back together and tossed it on the list. It's a bit out of order since 'remove bumper and crash bar' are at the bottom of the list, but you get the gist.

    Tomorrow (after a few other less interesting tasks), we begin the install!

    Also, since it's great timing - it's time for me to update my registration and I've been tossing around the idea for a vanity plate: JELLYBN or ANGRYBN?
