Automatic Focus

Hey there, I just recently joined this forum because I currently own a 2010 focus ses auto. I know there isn't much to do on automatic but anything that could help my car go faster, any mods, etc would help. Thank you!

heres some things that may help if on a budget.

1.) short ram air intake. ( cheaper than a cai)
2.) catback exhaust system (magnaflow is great on a budget.)
3.) automatic transmission shift plates
4.) highflow cat
5.) bigger throttle body (a TB from a mustang may fit your car)

Hope this helped dude

Yeah, this is a big help. Thanks you guys. So far, all I have done is put bi-xenon hids for my headlights and led lights for my license light. I was actually thinking of painting my calipers but wasn't sure. But since I saw those calipers painted black, it looks sick. And I was wondering what kind of intake I should get? Short ram or cold air intake? I looking for something that could pass California emission since there strict about intakes here.

I love my steeda intake I think that you'd like it too, and yes I think you would like your calipers painted, if you want to do some cheap mods to your wheels or interior plastidip is your best friend

I'm thinking about painting my calipers red or blue? Do you know if the k&n air filter is good to? Steeda intakes are pretty pricey. Any other things I could do to my car that would balance between price and performance?

paint them blue lol, I'm not to sure about the k&n, but the steeda is around the same price for the k&n if no cheaper, you could lower it with the frpp kit for 300 and get an upper stress bar for about 100
