2014 Focus ST3
I had a Kia Forte SX with the same motor as a Veloster Turbo, so unfortunately I know all about LSPI. Thanks for the heads up though. I'll behave 😁
Performance Blurple. Is a great color.Got the car, got it home late last night (4 hours each way to pick it up...) and I'm absolutely in love. That thing is gonna get me in trouble.
I'm fairly certain it has an aftermarket intercooler. When I get a chance I'll take some pictures. It doesn't look like factory welds or hose clamps on it, but the core doesn't seem very big for aftermarket either. It's silver, but then I'm not sure if the factory one is black or silver.
It absolutely has a BOV, the salesman said he was pretty sure it was a Turbosmart (he also drives an ST as did my finance guy). Looks like a muffler replacement, not a full catback. FSWerks full intake and AGS has been removed (which further leads me to believe the intercooler isn't stock.
I'm dealing with a popped stitch from a surgery a few weeks back, so the Recaros have been, uh, a bit of a challenge. I may, in the future, think about swapping for ST1 seats. I'm 6'2"/270, so they're not the most comfortable, but man they hug nicely.
I thought one of my first changes would be to get rid of the MFT system and upgrade to Sync3, but to this point I actually really like the MFT. Yeah, it's a little slow. Yeah, it doesn't always immediately connect to my phone, but for the most part it's been pretty solid (after 1 day...).
Overall, like I said, I'm absolutely in love with this thing. Performance Blue is even more striking in person!
Hmmm, in that case, I'll give that a shot first and if I decide I need extra padding, I'll go back and add the foam. Thanks!I went without the foam, personally. Just sawzaw'd the plastic bits off, stuck them back into the bolsters so it would remain stiff and reassembled. Now the bolsters are straight, but they give when I sit.
Strongly recommend doing just the driver side first. Figure out if you like it that way before you waste your time on the passenger side. Or, if you have no passengers, leave it stock. Lol.Hmmm, in that case, I'll give that a shot first and if I decide I need extra padding, I'll go back and add the foam. Thanks!
Gotta love the Blurrple!I am DEFINITELY going to have to look into that mod. Sounds like a huge help.
I've been a bit absent, still dealing with a bad surgical recovery, but I did get to shoot a few pics last night. Not great, but they're mine
