All the torque steer of a Mazdaspeed 3 with none of the power.

I've pulled on a stage 2 ST on E85 making 280whp/360wtq - they are weak cars that really don't make use of all the power they make. Hell I think a k04 GTI would likely beat a Big Turbo ST; I think the fastest BT ST I've seen was around a high 12 quarter, not super impressive (I searched for quite a while, and that is the fastest I've seen via a video. I've yet to see a timeslip for anything faster either).

My brother is has been top salesman for a BMW/FORD dealership for about two years now and they let him do what he wants around there, so guess who gets to test drive anything worth wild when they visit . (The i8 from bmw is amazing too btw) even the platnuim fords trucks have cheap plastics, awesome fat ass'd amercian seats though lol..

I know a guy with a stage 2+ ST, once I go stage 2 Im going to try to get a track run in on him and a roll from 40 either on the way or on the way home, hopefully im worthy enough to post in the kill stories section afterwards

Not to mention the dreaded Cylinder 1 problems on the ST.

Is that the issue where they're blowing holes in the pistons at low RPM and high boost?

Lol really?

All these local guys are going Big turbo because they couldn't stand the fact that I was faster - literally 3 guys have gone big turbo since they saw me beat their 280whp E85 member from a roll - I'm going to laugh if they start blowing motors

What's even funnier is that the videos I've seen of a guy on youtube running the same turbo they have, hitting 400whp or so, IIRC is only trapping 110-112. Our guys on k04 are hitting between 112 on pump, to 117 on racing fuel, which cracks me up. They're just SOOO slow when modded, it's ridiculous.

(I'm sure I wasn't their ONLY motivation, but I'm sure it didn't help )

Edit: I was wrong, been a while but I searched my history and found him. 12.4 @ 119mph is the fastest I could find. It's fast, but for a big turbo vs what our big turbo's can do, meh, still the top end of k04 territory.

More like for the RS, perhaps, its the same story with mk7 GTI vs R because they detune the gti engine, now that R and GTI has the same engine now, other than turbos.

Same crank, connecting rods, and pistons? At the very least I would guess somewhat minor things like valve springs would be different. I havent looked up anything on the EA888 gen 3's in the GTI and R though.

The R has the same crank, but uprated rods and different piston/head geometry, IIRC.

kinda... I have connections within powertrain engineering at ford. I also have 4 friends/acquaintances that have had a ST engine failure.

3 I was able to inspect myself and it actually looked like severe detonation and ringland failure. 3 were cyl 1 and 1 was cyl 4.

my family within ford powertrain was very hush hush about it and would not speak a word about what its caused from but he did confirm the alarming amount of engine failures.

There is a massive thread on it on the ST forums. Most are modded when they have failures but there were also many that were 100% stock.

Yeah that sounds like the stuff I was hearing about. Detonation that led to piston failures. Figures it would lead to ringland failures, too.

Ford isn't the only one with this problem, though. Kia/Hyundai's turbo 4s have this issue.
