Hi All, I am the proud owner of a 2013 1.4 Bmax. The next part is not some boy racer nonsense but a genuine enquiry. I think the bmax is a brilliant car, except for one thing, lacks power, well my 1.4 does. It got me thinking, Bmax is based on the Fiesta, Fiesta did a 1.6 St 180bhp. See where I'm going with this. Has anyone done this swap before. Anyone interested in trying this, I need some help. Pictures are of my Bmax engine and a Fiesta St engine. Engine bays look very similar.

Regards Lee

yes it would probably fit fairly easily. you might also want to lower the suspension to give a slightly stiffer ride.

I wonder if fitting the new 1.5l ecobost 3cyl engine (dragon) might be possible?

New eco boost would be nice but a little pricey for the engine. I can't find anyone who has done an St conversion in a Bmax. So tempted. Not sure I would mess around with the suspension. Not looking to racing it around just to improve driveability and perhaps some fun joining motorways etc.

Good luck with what you propose to do with your car, but remember to let the insurance company know otherwise your insurance will be invalid.
