Traded in the ST last night. Put 500 miles on the new ride on a road trip today. _DAI9041.jpg _DAI9084.jpg _DAI9093.jpg _DAI9122.jpg _DAI9191.jpg

So, Deep Impact Blue, Ecoboost 2016 with Performance package, downpipe, intercooler, air intake, Borla Exhaust, Fiberglass hood, carbon fiber wing and shelby GT350 steering wheel with 6000 miles on it (6500 now) . It will be an interesting journey. Shout out to a great forum, thanks for all the help.

Focus was pushing 70K, car was so heavily modded that the warranty did not seem to cover anything, I have missed my Mustang which I got rid of for the wrong reasons and largely because my left knee could not take a manual anymore, most of the pad is gone.

Just don't do any burnouts, I hear all Mustang burnouts end in tears. :)
Hardy har har. Missed hearing that LOL. I will be extra careful at Cars and Coffee. :crazy: One thing I will say too, SO MUCH MORE ROOM in the engine bay! I can reach out see the turbo reach it without any contortions or anything (not that I have even considered a big turbo in the future (cough). Anxious to pick up a Cobb Acessport, it already had a Cobb intercooler, unknown brand of downpipe, Roush Intake and Borla exhaust.

How fast have you gotten it up to? Does the rear louvers rattle at higher speed? Asking because I am thinking about getting those same louvers for my mustang but if it rattles doing 70-80 on the highway then I may just skip it.

Certainly an awesome looking ride, though I must say if I saw this car and it's visually modded appearance I'd certainly go at you and play...being as how you got the ecoboost you better tune that bad girl ASAP so you don't get shat on by some other American Muscle :cool:

Got it up to around 90. No Rattles. Its pretty well mounted and the previous owner appears to have even put a little bit of felt spacer to quiet any rattles

Nice car! Funny, but I've often wondered what my next car would be if I got rid of the ST, and a blue Mustang would be at the top of my list. I'd have to drive one to know for sure though. I really like the nimbleness of the ST and I suspect the Mustang is a different animal. A Camaro comes to mind too, but I have never liked the Camaro's cheesy looking dash and I actually like MyFord Touch now that they have most of the bugs worked out.
