    USDM 2014 Fiesta ST Support

    We are very excited to be first to market with a tuning solution for your USDM 2014 Fiesta ST! Our FOR-001 Accessport will now support the 2014 Fiesta ST. Available immediately is beta vehicle support which includes our v100 Stage 1 OTS Maps for 91 or 93 octane fuel. Also available are non-performance maps such as Anti-Theft Mode, Economy Mode, Valet Mode, and Stage0. Simply update to the latest firmware to add Fiesta ST support to your Accessport!

    Internal testing continues on this platform; expect to see additional maps as well as hard parts become available in the near future!

    Thank you for your continued support!

    That sounds great.

    Now for the $64,000 question, can a Ford tech tell if an Accessport has been installed and then uninstalled?

    I will be ordering soon or maybe buying at your so-cal location, FSWerks or Mountune.

    The short answer is no, not really. There are very few instances where a dealer would feel the need to find out if you had a flashed ECU. Now IF they have the $10,000 + Delphi tool and a tech who is trained to use it they can dig around and detect if the car has been flashed. Most dealers don't want to buy this tool since it's not something that is used or needed very often.

    If there was a serious warranty situation your ECU could be mailed to Ford for inspection and they would be able to tell in all likelihood if they dug into it.

    This sounds real good.
    However when will the Fiesta tuning software be released?

    Currently in only USDM support, sorry!

    We are working on Accesstuner (the custom tuning software) along with hard parts and more OTS maps!

    as an owner of a WRX modified to run e85 and using access tuner race and using your turbo back exhaust i am very interested in what you come up with both for tuning and bolt on exhaust options.... note that i run a slightly larger turbo, and top mount so my modifications are a modest 'stage III'.

    perusing whats been done for the focus ST, i dont have a lot of expectations about running setups that require more fueling than the current injectors/pump modificaiton/replacement.

    im looking for a new 'project car' and the fiesta st is high on the list.. though i would almost kill for an AWD version of this car...

    Let me know when you get software so I can start modding.

    likely upwards of 300BHP will be available from this car (with standard bolts ons of bigger intercooler, intake, full turbo back exhaustand tune and *maybe* a little bigger turbo) . TQ will likely get up in the 300lbs range too in a much lighter package that what a subi or other AWD cars can deliver. You cant make an already fat car light and thats the draw back to AWD cars.

    It's probably a little too early to see how people are going to deal w/ the big power increase. Can we squeeze 8" wheels under the fenders? Quaife or other LSD? launch control via the ecu? This car has the potential to REALLY catch other cars sleeping. November and SEMA cant come soon enough!

    I think if you look at the Focus ST, you'll start to think that 300 HP may not be all that likely, a Stage 3 COBB makes around 300 and that's with 25% more displacement.

    To me that suggests that 240 HP should be doable if the direct injection pump and injectors are up to it. Beyond that I think its going to need more effort than just bolt ons.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 270-280 which should give a Fiesta ST a similar power to weight as the Mustang 5.0.

    Peak power on the Fiesta ST is limited by the (very tiny) stock turbo, so more than 200-215 WHP will probably be unlikely. We should have more information available very soon though once we do a bit more testing!

    Will the accessport v3 be compatible with future mountune calibrations or will there be some sort of software lock to limit the mountune calibrations to the mountune version of accessport?

    The mTune from mountune will have only their specific calibrations and those will most likely not be available to use on a different Accessport, sorry! Currently, they only support AU/EU models of the Fiesta ST.

    I think we are wondering about the US Mountune support. As they say they are releasing their MP215 kit sometime this month in the US market. If, they indeed use the mTune as means of flashing their tune to our cars, is the unit locked so that we can not use additional COBB tunes in the future for when more COBB hard parts are released.

    From what was explained to me, the hardware is the same, but the firmware, tunes, etc. in the mTune are vendor-exclusive for mountune; the mTune cannot load tunes other than theirs, and mountune will not be offering their tunes for the Accessport. So, you will have to pick one or buy both.

    It sucks for us, the consumers, but I'm sure they have a reason for doing this.

    As in wanting you to pay another $6-700 for the exact same product so they can get their cut of the profits. Honestly the mountune maps only work if you have the proper parts anyways so I don't see why they would need to lock it. They're still getting their cut of the profits from the parts sales.

    This is why I am purchasing the Cobb V3 through FSWERKS when I get my car... you get Cobb and FSWERKS tunes. The good ol' 2 for one!
