Welcome!

Always start with an aftermarket intercooler.

Also search the forums here for LSPi and make sure you avoid it.

Look through all the stickies here and search the site for any initial questions you may have. I'm sure you'll find your answer!

Enjoy!

Congrats on the new purchase and welcome to the best forum around!

As for 1st things: You already heard #1 = FMIC (front mount intercooler!
#2 would probably be a Rear Motor Mount
I hope the symposer has been deleted, but that's my #3, lol.
Lots of reading on this forum to do as a new ST owner. Especially the pre-facelift models like yours. Just inform yourself for what to look for.
check for aftermarket tunes left on the car as well.

Pre facelift models?
Pre-face lift is prior to 2015 MY. They have a smooth hood and a different info-tainment system; Among other differences. IIRC they have been known for a few additional issues that were later addressed by Ford (some electrical and some mechanical). I had a '14 ST that was full of wire-chasing issues before I just traded it in. The models are largely the same though.
