....and so it begins...
wheels are a great start!
What's up everyone, I've been meaning to start a build thread for awhile, now that I've finally started to buy some aftermarket parts, spend some time on the forums, etc... For the record, my old account is @STinMO but I wasn't able to recover it recently, so I've been on the forums longer than my noob status says haha! Anyway a little about my ST-
2013 Ford Focus ST, Race Red. Bought in May 2018, with 30K miles on it (one owner before me), currently at 44K miles. Unfortunately, Little Red and I have been separated for about 2 months now, as she lost compression in cylinder one = been at Ford forever and new motor. Scheduled to picked her up on Monday/Tuesday so only a few more days! I have wheels/tires, FMIC, and a rear wiper delete to do as soon as I get her back, I spoiled myself with my tax return. I don't have a ton of pictures on my phone to upload, however I will add some from my laptop later. Check my signature for mod list, and I will update this accordingly with pictures, info, etc... Look forward to sharing!
Today I can add a picture of my new wheels though! They're TRmotorsports C4 18x8 wheels, they weigh around 19.5lbs, and I noticed a lot of people use them on their ST for AutoX. I love them and can't wait to get them on next week. For the record, they will be wrapped in Nitto Motivo tires (average tires, around $110 each, but didn't want to break my bank). Out the door wheels & tires was $1,088. I caught the wheels on a sale so saved a little money luckily.
Future plans- Coilovers, New Tune, Upgrade Suspension Parts, New Speakers, and a lot more to come!
I saw you had a bunch of stuff done already now you just got to document and share
Thanks for the vote (never won and no longer get a chance... oh well maybe someone will start it back up)
This is a process for me, I just got "into" cars when I bought my ST, I'm still learning as I go but I'm excited
I was able to find the "first day" picture when I was at the car lot, she sure has changed alot since then!
I'm finding more & more on my phone as I go! Below are a few pics from an install when I was in STL with @angrychair . This day we did the following-
VelossaTech Big Mouth Intake
Rek Gen Mud Flaps
Painted My Calipers
Sanding grill area (no crash bar cover), and painting crash bar solid black.
Also have a pic after adding the Headlight Armor yellow fogs, they're great and have held up amazing through car washes, bad weather, bugs, etc...
Update 4/12/19- Purchased another AP3 today, so I can haz tune
Also, saw my ST at the shop today, tomorrow they are changing out the motor! (Ignore rust on rotors, she sat outside for 45 days before they even touched her)
I have parts waiting on her! Over the weekend received my JBR weighted shift knob, JBR rear wiper delete, Mountune FMIC and my new AP3 will arrive today!
