2015 Focus SE, Whats Next?

Hey everbody, ive got a 2015 se hatch with sport package and paddle shifting dual clutch. So far ive added a steeda rear sway bar, a custom intake combo of mst and k&n, a steeda rear motor mount, ngk Iridium plugs, some interior lights and pedals, rally and fender stripes from house of graphix and a snorkel delete. Im saving up the cash to buy FSWERKS stealth catback in the spring but id like to do one more thing, either performance or aesthetic, under budget before winter hits other than maintenance. Im thinking about mgp caliper covers or a front strut tower brace, trying to get a good bang for my buck under $200 any ideas you guys might have or suggestions? Also wondering what difference the tower brace makes/can i use one designed for ST?

I don't know if you can get something like Steeda or KN shields (without buying the whole thing again)

Cold dense air= Power. You won't find much cold air under the hood.

In Arizona (the Phoenix area) for about 75% of the year you don't find cool air anywhere.

Honestly though guys ive ran it all summer with this setup and have only encountered heat soak once on a blistering 100+ day sitting in traffic, but it only affected low speed throttle. Not sure i wanna do springs yet either. Has anyone done a front tower brace yet?
