Build Thread for my SCCA STF mk3 Focus

Wanna start a build thread for documentation and testing.

My current set up is:

MSR 18" w/ Hankook RS3s

Magnaflow Catback exhaust

Injen intake

Ford handling pack from dealer


Proposed updates are in order of planned purchase:

Steedafocus sway bars (front & rear)

Brake kit (not sure on this but want to keep it around $1000)

Shock tower brace (found one on FSWerks for rear, want front as well)

Tuner from Focus-Power.com

Cobb Tuning Motor Mount

Fully adjustable coilovers

Spec clutch and flywheel

header (not sure if this one is worth it or not)

Also,

I found this site : PRtec Products - FORD FOCUS Mk3 NA 2.0
anybody have any experience with this site? It sketches me out a bit but I really want to be able to do some of the upgrades they have like throttle body.

Let me know what you guys think about how the proposed set up could be bettter. Or current for that matter.

And also how'd you get your side skirt the same color as the rest of your car? Is that just a titanium edition thing?

Came from the factory with the wing so I'm assuming you can order one from Ford but not sure on the rest of the body kit. Got the car from No coast in Topeka. They wouldn't respond when I asked about the upgrades unfortunately.

Thanks! I'm so excited being it's my first year doing scca. I've had a lot of fun so far apart from my ridiculous understeer that everyone has a problem with. Gonna kill it with some quality suspension upgrades tho (hopefully)!

nice!
Interesting your car came with those side skirts and wing....and I can't tell, but it looks like your rear variance is also painted SGM. It seems like the dealer put on the side and rear parts of the body kit, but not the front. Also I'm not entirely sure from the angles, but I think that spoiler is the 3D carbon spoiler and not the Ford Accessory one. Theres no appearance/body kit pkg listed on the window sticker, so I'd say they are some nice free additions! :D
also you don't have the titanium chrome trim along the windows, and it doesn't look like you dipped or vinyled it......
.....very strange maybe the 2012 titanium had different options. its like Titanium x SE

my 2014 is ordered from the factory, and the option for the body kit did not include a spoiler upgrade at all. Only SE black pack got the Ford Accessory spoiler. for 2014 at least.

anyway, nice car and sick wheels lol. I'm super jealous mine didn't come with a wing. I opted not to get the body kit because I didn't like the front.

The site seems unusable haha. I click things and it just shows me a picture. Their CAI snorkel looks like a mailbox or an old fashion para scope, but it is interesting to see other designs.


Welcome!

Upgraded rear sway really does a good job if cutting understeer on these cars, I'd always recommend that as a first mod. It made a pretty dramatic change on my car after the swap.
