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!

It began awhile back lol I bought stuff slowly, and now that I have a fresh motor, why not? I'm excited, and also love your ST man, voted for you frequently for ST OTM
Yeah I mean the build thread mainly... you know when someone is getting into it when a thread starts LOL

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)

I feel ya! I'll get some pics of all the mods I have listed, some are chilling at home waiting for install since I haven't had it in almost 2 months lol

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

The weighted knob is one of my favorite non-power upgrades. That Stratified tune will change your life, though.
I literally just went through the checkout process online for the Stratified tune, waiting on my mod-list form now, I'm excited!

Latest update on 4/16 says LittleRed will be ready to bring home Tomorrow (Thursday, 4/18). That means she has officially been at Ford for 9-10 weeks now, it's bout damn time!

So the Ford dealer my car is at, decided to pull a huge d!ck move yesterday, and call me at 5:30pm when I'm 5 minutes away, to tell me Little Red isn't ready. Supposed to pick up today (friday 4/19), but Ford has went back on alot of "it'll be done on____" and it's never done. Here's to hoping :disappointed:

Officially got the ST back on Friday evening. Weather was crappy Saturday but beautiful Sunday, so I was able to install my JBR Wiper Delete & JBR Shift Knob @[email protected]. Both installations were stupid easy and as usual, great products.The shift knob being weighted, makes a world of difference as far as the feel of shifting immediately, I'll be pairing it with the JBR shift arm soon as well. Some pics below!

PS- New wheels being put on this morning as we speak.

I managed to take one decent picture last night, with the wheels on. I also was able to put my new @[email protected] tune on since they're awesome and turned it around super quick for me.

Wheels have only been on for about 12hrs, so they're still growing on me, regardless they're lighter (19.5lbs) and an upgrade from snowflakes in my book. As for the tune- yummy, feels so amazing. @angrychair, here yo wheel pic dawg @brian60 you also made me promise a picture.
