Default Ford Fiesta 1.6S Petefied

When you guys read the title dont missunderstand its a 1.6 diesel.
Already Fiesta 1.6S is a drivers car plus Petes modification guys you can imagine.
List of Modification:
Suspension -Bilstein
Brakes:
Rotor -Tarox
Pads -Tarox
Full Free Flow Exhaust- Milltek sport
Filter -Green cotton Storm + dynamisation kit
After all this mods stability and handling is superb but little bit bumby its because suspenison is bit hard.But it handles like anything you can throw your with more confident.

About the brakes i will comment later because it still need to run 100 more km to set.

If i can comment about FFE guys its a blast.Have to listen then only guys can understand how beautiful the exhaust note is.Its not really loud.We can hear a beautiful note after 3000rmp, on the idle there is nil sound like normal 1.6 engine.Its really more powerful after the FFE installtion.You can feel the pull.

Filter ofcourse the sssh sshhh sounds makes me crazy to push the car to the limit.
Special thanks to Petes and team.
I will post more pictures with car.

Jerish, thats an awesome ride. Petes would make the killing all through! Did you try changing the rear brakes to discs?

Congratulations, Jerry!
Enjoy your ride.

Is there any remaps/piggyback ECU available for your car? Why don't you add that and make your ride more colorful?

@getsurya i didnt ask peter about changing the back drum to disc.But so far the brakes are more than enough.Only i changed the front rotor and pads.

Jerish, still on the stock tyres, or did you change them? Hows the grip from them?
With the new suspension has comfort totally gone for a toss?

Wow, the Fiesta 1.6S is a heck of a drive in stock form. I can only imagine what the car will be like with these upgrades. What about the tyres? Which are you running?

Congrats. Would love to see some pictures of the entire car.

I have a small video of my exhaust note.I dont know how to post it here please help me.
I will definitely post more pictures and videos.

It is still on stock tyres Goodyear Eagle NCT 5.195/55/R15.I will upsize to 205/55/R15 later.
Ofcourse handling is amazing,tyres are not bad but i will change it later.
Thanks for all of your valuable comments.More mod advices are welcome.
