Well the SVT suspension worked really well for a dual use car, but was still a little too soft for autocrossing. I went ahead today and switched out the suspension for the Ford Racing Spec Focus road racing springs and Koni STR.T shocks front and rear. I've only driven it about 20 miles so far but feels pretty good.
The downside to this setup is now I can't get enough camber on the front just using the camber plates so will have to change that setup again. I was looking for -2 degrees minimum and the most we could get was -1.3 before the caster went crazy. I also went with more camber in the rear than I was using previously, -2 instead of -1, I'm looking for a little more grip in the rear without ruining the turn is it had.
As you can see these springs lower the car a good inch lower than the SVT set up, and surprisingly the ride isn't bad at all.

Yay another Houston guy.
You just missed a group install/hangout meet we had on the 13th.
Car is coming along nicely. Like the wheels. My 17"x7.5" wheels are a little over 3 pounds lighter as well. Definitely makes a difference.

Thanks, I am going to look at the rear disk conversion but will probably drive it this way for the rest of the year. I am considering the SSBC conversion or just doing a SVT conversion.
As for the exhaust see 14.10 D and 14.10 E in the 2013 rule book:
I'm old and slow anyway so a couple of horsepower either way won't make much difference.

|bringler26||Interesting my interpretation and through discussions with those how had experience the SVT header and cat were an except-able upgrade for ST because it was a factory part on another model.|

I like the wheels.
I think you would be suited with dropping it even more, even the stock SVT suspension looks too high to me.
Also, have you considered upgrading to the SVT brakes?

Those wheels look good!

Got the wheels and tires put on today. Now to decide on a tune to go with it.

Decided on tires and wheels and ordered these today along with a set of BFG G-force Sport COMP 2's in 205/50-16. Tirerack had a closeout price on the Kazera KZ-P and they only weigh 16.5 pounds each, so almost 3 pounds of unsprung weight off each corner.
