Removed the dealer sticker and updated my MFT wallpaper.


So my ST3 deck is awesome but under powered. I decided to start with the bass.

Rockford subwoofer T1D2-12
Q Bomb box ported Q Bomb 12 VL Single 1.8cu


Rockford amp T500.1BDCP


Rockford Bass Knob




Tint done today! Now I have to save up for exhaust.

I'd suggest hearing the CP-e turboback before making a decision :)

I wired from the battery through the passenger side firewall. Removed the 5 torx from the glove box to remove the glove box. I tied into the green wire and in line fused the remote. I tied the line in at this point to two white wires for input for the line out to rca. Ran the three sets of wires back on the passenger side. The ground is right behind the seat less then a foot from the amp. The remote for the knob is along the same path.

As far as sound it is awesome but makes the car rattle. I have the knob to control the amp depending on passengers or places. This set up should put me about 135 db. One 12 is more then enough and with the ported box it is overkill. But this is how I like it. A sealed 10 would be ideal for most people and would help save room.

So my project today was replacing most of the lights on my ST3.
Time for some lights:

Rear Turn Signals: 3157 Chrome Amber Bulb
Took away the amber color in the tail lights perfectly.

Front Turn Signal: 7507 PY21W Chrome Amber Turn Signal Light Bulbs
Again, took away the amber from the turn signal.

Interior Dome & Cargo Lights, Mirror Puddle Light: Jtech 194 T10 5-SMD White LED Car Lights Bulb
Really made the interior look classy and modern, yet complements the ambient lighting of the ST3.

Fog Light HID Conversion: XENTEC H11 4300K HID Conversion Kit
Matches great! Went from the top and removed the two headlight screws, real easy to do and well worth it.

My rear LED back up lights have not arrived, but will post when they do. One day I will snap some good pics, but overall I am very happy with the conversions, and everything was available on Amazon.

The fogs look great! Did you go with the 35 or 55 watt? Did you get them off ebay?
I used 35W 4300K off of Amazon. I used a cheaper set since they are fogs, but they turned out great. I didn't mind cheaper fogs but I think on my F250 I will go with a more expensive kit. Still doing research. XENTEC H11 (H8/H9) 4300K HID Conversion Kit (Soft White) : Amazon.com : Automotive

Edit: Update, I kept having them turn off and on periodically and so I went back to stock. I will go to LED one day.

Thanks for sharing! I did a quick search on ebay to look at the lights and it looks like they might be even a bit cheaper. Haven't fully looked into the comparison of the ones on Amazon (i.e. if they are different), but might be worth a look your other set (saw 55w also).

This mod has definitely made it on my list of to-dos, especially if going through the top is that easy. Can never have enough light :)
