looking to spend around $1000 on stuff to mod on my 2016 ST but not sure what to do first i for sure want an exhaust but does anyone have any other good things to mod?
You can buy the accessport from one of a handful of companies and with that you get all the Cobb maps plus the tuner's OTS map that will be a good step up from Cobbs maps, but another good step below a custom tune. Still, for the same price as buying the AP from Cobb direct it's a no brainer. I feel bad for the guys that didn't do their research and bought it from Cobb instead of Stratified or Panda or something.i dont know alot about a tune if anything lol do you have to pay for that or its that the cobb access port or is that something different? but in the long run i am for sure ganna fully mod it out just didnt want to go all out cause i just got the car
Didn't I read if you buy a new focus in the last 2 years you get a free driving school class at Octane or something?I know people generally don't want to hear this, but the best modification you can do is for yourself. Take a good performance driving school, and really learn to handle what is there on the stock car (more than most people think!) Once you get your skills upgraded, then consider mods to the car. As others have pointed out, a Cobb AP is a good place to start.
$1000.00 buys a bunch of high performance stickers! You'll be FAST!!! (Get an AccessPort and intercooler).looking to spend around $1000 on stuff to mod on my 2016 ST but not sure what to do first i for sure want an exhaust but does anyone have any other good things to mod?

This isn't at all factual.Be careful, a tune will void your warranty.

For comment #2. In other vehicles each time you flash a tune it leaves a log in the ECU that cannot be erased. Even when it is flashed back to stock. The dealer will notice and your warranty is void from the first tune you flashed.This isn't at all factual.
1st- If you have an issue that can't be proved to be caused by a tune, it won't affect warranty claims.
2nd- If you install a tune with the Accessport, you can uninstall the tune in about 5 minutes and remove the accessport from the vehicle. They will never know it existed.
3rd- There are dozens and dozens of users on here who are tuned and have had warranty work done to prove the above points
From what I've gathered from the flash tunes (Maybe @[email protected] can help me here) the tune leaves no trace of itself when uninstalled. I've read it several times on this forum in the past, unless something changed it doesn't leave any trace.For comment #2.

Is this true for the focus? Can you flash back to stock and not worry about the dealer knowing?
It leaves a trace.
