Out with the NEW in with the OLD

Want more power ?

The new Mk8 Fiesta is already a firm tuning favourite with Pumaspeed, so why have Pumaspeed done the impossible and installed the older 1.6 EcoBoost Turbo engine in the new 2018 chassis?

Many of our regular customers and fans expressed disbelief when Ford announced there would be no 4 cylinder engines in any of the new Mk8 Fiesta range. The new 2018 onwards cars would only feature 1.0T and 1.5T 3 cylinder units.
Many of the Pumaspeed customer base are pretty hardcore track days guys and are yet to be convinced on the 3 cylinder engines power potential. Many have invested heavily into the 4 cylinder 1.6 Ecoboost with forged engine builds and Hybrid X47R turbos so are well on the way to 330-350bhp. The interest in carrying their engine investment over into the new Mk8 which is a more up to date chassis and better handling car is pretty high.
Pumaspeed are way in front when it comes to the Fiesta platform so the management team made an immediate decision to use the very accomplished X-47R Turbocharger and 1.6 Ecoboost package in a conversion that would rock the world and push the new Mk8 platform to its limits.

An interview with Tony McQuire from Pumaspeed.

Q :So Tony when did you dream this madcap idea?
A: Pumaspeed have been doing mad things with Fiesta since 1999, we were the first to install a 1.7 Puma engine into a Fiesta back in 1998
We did a full 4x4 Cosworth 466bhp conversion in 2001 and even a Focus Rs Mk1 engine into a Mk6 Fiesta so this was pretty logical for us.
In December 2017 we purchased a brand-new 140 bhp 1.0 ecoboost Mk8 and instantly realized the handling and the dynamics of the car were far superior to anything the Fiesta Mk7 and Mk7.5 had given us, it was a real revelation with the addition of a simple set of Eibach Redline Springs transformed the car enormously so we couldn't wait to get our hands deep into development.

Q: Is the new Mk8 Fiesta really that good ?
A: We believe so,the chassis is fantastic and the interior of the New Mk8 with the new control systems are away in front of the Mk7, it has full connectivity sync, lots of new features such as etc and as a daily runner the car is superior in every way. The only issue we could see was the lack of performance from the three cylinder 1.0 and the forthcoming 1.5 turbo Dragon engine.

Q: When did you get the physical car ?
A: We took a decision in April to source a second Mk8 Fiesta 1.0 with View to convert it to full 340 hp X-47R Hybrid turbocharged 4 Cylinder power. We found a suitable donor vehicle and the exploratory process began to see if a suitable ECU could enable communication with the vehicles CAN BUS  system.  We soon found a company willing to take on the challenge, Specialist Controls who manufacture the SCS Delta stand alone Engine Management System where asked to re-write their SCS Delta ECU to use the CAN BUS protocols to cope with the new and very different Mk8 ECU. This was completed in a little over a month to enable us to meet the Ford Fair deadline debut date.
Q: When did you actually start the conversion process ?
A: The vehicle was collected from The Specialist Controls company with all the relevant SCS Delta ECU in mid June, leaving very little time to do the conversion and fully road test before the 5th August. Luckily being Pumaspeed, we already had an engine from the Fast Ford magazine featured 335 bhp Pumaspeed Red Rocket fiesta track car and very quickly installed this power plant in the engine bay with some new Custom specification drive shafts and suitable engine mounts. The design and build of all the suitable hardware took around two weeks to perfect and was a straight forward process for our Technicians.

Q: It sounds very simple, was it really that easy ?
A: Not really the hardware side of things was relatively simple but the electronics and the full integration to the rest of the car brand new style of CAN BUS was never going to be that simple.The process of rewiring of the 4 cylinder engine harness to interface with the new unique Mk8 version SCS Delta ECU system and the original 3 cylinder car took a little more time than we imagined, we started the ball rolling but was ultimately completed by our friends at Racing Circuits in Leeds and to a very high factory like standard, in fact under the engine bay looks very OEM and is a real credit to both Racing Circuits and the Pumaspeed workshop team.

Q: So when did the new 4 cylinder motor actually fire up and run
A: 6 days before the deadline of Aug 5th is the answer, we knew we were cutting it fine but had total faith in the physical hardware install so knew that once the engine fired it would be fit to drive down the street. There were a few minor tweeks to do to the engine location due the huge 330+ bhp power output but all in all, the finished vehicle was ready and wrapped up in the distinctive Pumaspeed livery(avalible for purchase) only three days before it's official launch at Ford Fair where the car was taken on track and overtook plenty cars out of the way with its X47R as well as giving the crowd some fun in the form of big flames out the back thats to the SCS aftermarket management system.

The car was driven 140 miles to the Ford Fair and 140 miles back again to the Pumaspeed Workshop, as well as still being daily driven by Dan McQuire the workshop manager.

For any customers wishing to install an ecoboost engine into any type of transport dont hestitate to contact the Pumaspeed Team who will be able to supply new or used engines and most all the hardware to install a fully prepped 300 plus ecoboost motor into it.

All in all the Pumaspeed team feel that this vehicle is a massive step forward for the fiesta wishing to retain the four cylinder power but update their vehicle to a newer and superior platform.
