    Red face Bought a '17 ST1!

    Hello all,
    I'm kinda new to the forum and I figured I could use this time to introduce myself as well as the '17 Midnight Black ST I bought over the weekend.

    I picked up the car with 50K miles with a stratified tune, cobb accessport, borla exhaust, aftermarket air filter and it seems like a downpipe too. (I haven't really fully checked the modifications on the car)

    The ST is a blast to drive from the exhaust pops to hearing the air pressure being released it sounds awesome.

    With the modifications, I'm not too sure on what the actual WHP and torque are but it definitely pulls you at the low end which feels great.

    Here are a couple of pictures: Exhaust Front Back

    I have a couple of questions about the accessport:
    What should I be monitoring on it?
    How do I check the exact stratified tune I have?
    Is there anything I should be careful about?

    Thanks!

    Did you have a Focus before? How are you liking the manual?

    I did not, I drove a '03 Mitsubishi Eclipse beforehand. I knew how to drive manual and I'm loving it. It's been a long time since owning a manual car and it's a lot more engaging and fun.

    Nice! That’s a big setup for sure. So much has changed from ‘03 to ‘17. I do love the prices on the ST1’s also & the seats are much more comfortable vs. the ST3. As much as I love the look of the RS, I can’t get over the 30k+ used prices. After I bought my SVT Lightning I told myself I’d never spend over 30k on another vehicle. So the $16-19k used ST1 prices really look nice.

    You might have a body shop look at it and see what they can do, if they can do anything. otherwise you will probably need a new bumper, if it bothers you enough to do that.

    Mine all together came at $17,500. Pretty good deal with the amount of modifications done to the vehicle
