Fiesta Mk7 TDCi (Stage 5) Air Intake Kit
Posted on 2:29pm Saturday 30th Jun 2012
We tested our prototype TDCi Stage 5 Air Intake Kit last week, conducting a trial fit and drive appraisal using James Evans vehicle (Thanks James). There are 2 minor differences between the standard Stage 4 and 5 kits - the silcone hose and the DPF sensor bracket - both fitted well. James took it out for a lengthly drive and provided me with the following report;
Firstly I am extremely impressed with the quality of the product. It not only aesthetically sets the engine bay of it’s also a very robust product and extremely well designed for this model of car.
I can 110% say that it has improved the performance of the car in the following areas: Reduced turbo lag/Improved turbo spool up time. Supports the DPF removal greatly with throttle response. I have no doubt that it has increased the BHP of the car and I will prove this by a follow up with a dyno test. It also adds a mean low end growl to the car and you can really hear the turbo spool up with a well pronounced whistle from the turbo.
I would like to thank you for your help with one of the many different modifications on the car so far and I will be sure to show the product of in future shows/meetings.
Please keep me updated of any future products that you think would be suitable for my car, I will be sure to take a keen interest!
We are now awaiting stock of the bracket and hose and will advertise this online as soon as these kits are available. If you need any further information please contact me.
