Same platform other than the engine. I believe Ken block's car has a biturbo setup with dual wastegates on a 2.0L 4 cylinder.

hahaha see everything has its up and downs.

and that rally fiesta is BA. they had a competition up here in portland awhile back a guy had the same setup on one and that thing screamed!

and smakes i wasnt saying it was bashed on here just in general by people who really don't know anything about it's history. they just see 5 cylinder and think its some off the wall made up thing by gm. imo it was actually a pretty smart move seeing as how dependeable it has proven to be in other cars. i know they were trying to save space with it but i think it would have been more accepted with an inline 6. like a 4.2 the old jeeps had. talk about bulletproof. you see those things out wheeling with 300k on them and they can still toy with the rev limiter all day and still perform like new

Nah, the fiesta shares the B platform with the Ka and mazda2. The focus is a C platform like the mazda3.
