Purchased 7/15/2017, I bought my car used with about 4K miles. 1 week after buying my car, I came across a part out and bought an AccessPORT3 and Levels intercooler.. I tuned my car to Stage 1 93 Octane about a week ago and today I installed the intercooler then tuned to Stage 2 93 Octane .... I'll attach a few pics below.

Updates will be in comments as parts are installed.

Smart man bought a "brand new" car and probably saved yourself a boatload of cash.

I was going to shave it and put my license plate behind it but my friend told me cops will start stopping me and it's not worth it. Next is lowering springs or coilovers, downpipe and maybe exhaust

Thanks, I couldn't resist! This car was my inspiration.. it belongs to a guy named Matt here in VA Beach. As soon as I saw his car, I knew I wanted the mod life lol.. and he's putting out 400+ WHP

This weekend I installed a few parts with the help of a couple good friends I've met within the Focus ST community..

Parts installed:
-BC Racing BR coilovers
- Green Air Filter
-Cobb Rear Motor Mount

Time to install was about 6 hours for everything and that was with a few hiccups, some time away from the bay and adjusting the coilovers after installation. Here are a few pictures I took. Currently my ST has 5,100 Miles

I've given up trying to upload my pics right side up, sorry about that. They were right side up but the forum flips them every time they're uploaded.

Over the past few days I've been working with JSTuned, tuning my ST and at this point (3 revisions later) my car is running the best it has ever been. With that being said, I highly recommend hitting them up, Brian works fast and revised pretty quickly after the initial tune came through..its just all about how quickly you can send back your Logs.

It's been a while since I've done a thing.... but I'm doing a thing on Saturday. Picking up a Borla Cat Back exhaust as well. I've got a few friends from the VA Beach ST community who will be helping out with the install. I went with a catted 1320 Performance Down Pipe.

Borla Catback and 1320 Performance Catted Downpipe installed a while ago, Maxton V3 lip installed, hit a possum 1 week later and took a chunk out of it... oh well, this car has been a lot of fun so far. Miscellaneous projects include a new shift knob (1552) and I've layed a vinyl floor which looks like weathered barn board in the trunk. I've been pretty active on Instagram, my username is: race_red_st_

Coming soon: Aquamist HFS4 Methanol Injection setup.. waiting on my kit to arrive. Future plans include Enkei RPF1 wheels.


Note the Shaved Grill and the Velossa Tech Big Mouth ..
