αIntake™ Ram Air Box Ford Fiesta ST 2016+ Intake
The Fiesta ST is a well-rounded car in just about every aspect, and the intake system is too. The stock intake system is designed well, and the community sees that. Still cp-e™ felt that they could take the good & the bad from the stock system, and make it even better. After a long engineering process, cp-e™ is proud to release the Ford Fiesta ST ￼￼￼xCel™ Ram Air Box Intake for the Fiesta ST.

ATTENTION NON-USDM Customers: if your car uses the mass air sensor you will need a tune that accounts for the added air volume. USDM cars have a mass air sensor in them however they only use it for intake air temperature measurements so there is no tune required for USDM cars.
Available powder coated in Satin Black, Ford Race Red the Fiesta ST 2016+ Intake offers the most well thought out solution to getting air to your turbo yet. The αIntake Intake comes with a full 3.00” mandrel bent tube. Welded onto the tube are a CNC-lathed port for the PCV system and a CNC laser cut and former bracket. In addition there is also a mass air sensor adaptor welded to the tube that allows you to bolt the stock mass air sensor in place. This adaptor is CNC milled from billet aluminum and contoured to fit the tube perfectly.
The intake tube then attaches to the air box through a 5-ply silicone elbow and a CNC-Milled aluminum bellmouth. This velocity stack bellmouth smoothly compresses the air from 4.00” to ￼3.00” providing a minimal amount of energy loss which translates to a higher air speed through the tube. The included 4.00” air filter is specially designed by cp-eTM to give the most free flowing air flow possible, with your choice between DflowTM or SynOilTM.
Part of what makes the stock intake system well-rounded is the great design of the stock box. It brings in cool air efficiently, and isolates the filter from the hot air in the engine bay. Where the stock box lacks is where the cp-eTM αIntake™ shines above all. The Fiesta ST 2016+ Intake box is laser cut and CNC-bent 18 gauge stainless steel. Stainless steel is great for this application for not only its resistance to corrosion, but also its thermal properties allow the interior of the box to stay cool, even when the box itself heats up. The box utilizes the stock fresh air duct, and also sucks up cool fresh air from the bottom mounted snorkel tube. The box is topped off by clear plexi glass to seal the filter from the heat, providing a sweet view and easy access to the filter. Not only is it laser cut for perfct fitment, but also abrasion resistant. Lastly, the box easily mounts in the stock location with the laser cut brackets and CNC-lathed mounting feet.

Matthew (verified owner) –
I’ll be as comprehensive about this review as possible. What follows is a ‘start to finish’ summary of my purchase, materials inspection, install, and warranty inquiry (customer service) experience.
Placing the order online was easy. The only mix-up was that I selected a D-flow filter, but received a Synoild filter instead. It was confirmed by cp-e that this was a system glitch–which I don’t hold against them–and they have since rectified the issue. For future customers, I suggest confirming which filter you want in the order comments.
The construction of all the material is top notch. The installer and I took a genuine moment to admire how solid everything was. A small exception to our admiration was the hood prop relocation brackets. They do not stay seated when removing the prop. The actual brackets themselves are stout, but they must be secured through other means.
Installation was mostly straight forward. There were two minor points of confusion with hardware–the lower ram air tube and the collar that seats the tube to the housing–but is easily identified if you mock up each pre-install. The most difficult part of the install was removing the protective film from the housing cover. To remove it, the installer and I had to soak and scrub the paper layer by layer. Goo-gone was helpful during this process.
My warranty inquiry involved the condition of my air filter upon its first service. The filter appeared collapsed and warped on two sides (both sides having ram air intakes). Cp-e determined that the damage was related to install because unique conditions must exist for the vehicle to cause such a deformation. I have no technical data to refute this, so I can merely say that the filter was delicately installed and untouched since. Despite this, I am happy with how professionally cp-e handled the inquiry and have done business with them since.
I am giving this product a five star review because between the intake and the company backing it, I am fully impressed. Email reply times have been fair, that is to say, realistic for a company fielding a variety of technical inquiries. I would recommend this intake, and cp-e, to anyone.
