An Access Port is a part that you can buy that will measure and monitor basically everything you could ever want to know about your vehicle. From monitoring your engine, shifting, power, it can pretty much set a new limit of parameters to make your vehicle faster and boost when it is tuned correctly. The Access Port can change everything from ignition timing, fueling curves, boost curves and then will allow the motor to produce more power.
Getting a new intake system for your Ford Fiesta ST is a part that can help the engine run more efficiently and be more powerful. Getting a legitimate, improved intake system for the Ford Fiesta ST can allow air in from all angles. Any intake system you have will increase the amount of air that flows through the engine, but getting one that has a great configuration system is key. Besides the original intake system that comes with your vehicle, there is a choice between a cold air intake, which draws in cooler air from the outside and brings it into the vehicle and a short ram air intake, which sucks in large amounts of hot air to help with more efficient combustion.
While a noisy exhaust and muffler is typically a viewed as a problem, car enthusiasts often will buy car parts to make their vehicle louder so it is more noticeable. Getting a new exhaust system can make your vehicle sound throatier and more aggressive, and it can amplify any of the improvements and changes from the new intake system. Vehicles like the Fiesta ST will benefit from a larger exhaust than the one that comes standard with your vehicle.
