These Ford Fiesta Mk8 ST performance exhausts are made in 3"/76.2mm pipework and fit from the Gasoline Particulate Filter section backwards (GPF-back) these exhausts replace the centre and rear sections.
Please Note - This performance exhaust retains the use of exhaust valves. When switching drive modes (e.g. Eco to Race mode) your exhaust tone will continue to swap from quieter to louder tones as before.
All relevant fittings and gaskets are supplied.
Note: This performance exhaust only fits 2018 - 2020 model years due to a redesigned exhaust valve on later model variants. The Carbon Fibre tailpipes shown in the product image are an optional extra.
Cobra Sport Exhausts provide the performance exhaust solutions for the Mk4 Focus STs raced by the MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square and Motorbase Performance teams in the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship. This technical partnership allows us to test our products on track at the highest level of British Motorsport. The experience gained from the competitive track environment is fed back into all of our road going performance exhaust systems.
The Cobra Sport development team took delivery of the Mk8 Fiesta ST soon after its UK release keen to begin development on an exciting new range of Performance Exhaust upgrades. The new exhaust systems will be initially available in Gasoline Particulate Filter (GPF) Back configuration and includes the motorised exhaust valve.
The bore size of the Cobra Sport exhaust has been increased to 3" (76.2mm), which is unique in the market providing the greatest upgrade in terms of performance, flow rate and sound levels.
In order to keep the use of the drive select modes, the Cobra Sport exhaust range has been designed with the inclusion of the active valve to help regulate exhaust tone at low speeds and keep the tone differences between drive modes.
Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport says "The new 1.5 Litre EcoBoost engine is unknown in the market so we were keen to immediately improve the sound produced by the 3 cylinder engine. Our development team worked hard to ensure the 3" pipework was a perfect fit as we felt Fiesta owners would be looking to upgrade to a full 3" performance exhaust once the tuning capabilities of the engine are explored further by our extensive dealer network. Templates and preliminary drawings have been produced to enable us to create the full turbo back (with de-cat/sports cat downpipes) and GPF delete exhaust options once the tuning software becomes available in the coming months."
The Cobra Sport Mk8 Fiesta ST exhausts are finished with twin 3.5" highly polished stainless steel or ceramic black slash cut tailpipes engraved with the Cobra Sport logo along with a 3.5" Carbon Fibre tip option.
As with all Cobra exhaust developments, power increases, sound improvements and manufacturing quality are top of the priority list during development. Superior TIG welding techniques during the manufacturing process set the Cobra Sport exhausts apart from the competition. The levels of quality achieved enables us to offer a lifetime guarantee on all exhaust systems which provides the ultimate peace of mind for the customer.
