Wheels and tires are a performance mod, lower weight the engine has to rotate, performance tires increase grip, better cornering, reduced wheelhop, less wheelspin off the line. Not saying don't do other mods first, but it isn't just for looks.

MattKoch89 Rear motor mount is good for the automatic SE, right? Not just the ST.

Also, whats the difference between the Sport and the Race model

ProjectCommuter I have the stealth, and at first I thought it was much louder than I wanted. But now after almost 10K miles it has mellowed and I like it a lot. I get compliments all the time. Much to the chagrin of my wife. LOL!

One of these just showed up yesterday!

TORQUERULES The direct injected 2.0 in the MK3 Focus has a deep metallic sound and is not Honda-like in any way.

Check out the dyno thread to get an idea of what kind of power you are making. DCT automatics and the 5-speed manual are pretty much equal on HP, with the manual having the advantage in TQ mainly due to the factory calibration (tune) being conservative on allowing the engine to produce torque that may harm the more fragile DCT.

MattKoch89 Sounds good everyone! More interested in performance over the looks of my car so I'll worry about wheel and tires last probably. To anyone who has the Fswerks stealth, how does it sound in person? Doesn't sound dumb like all these civics you hear driving by everyday does it? I saw the video but it doesn't do me much.

darkangelism in addition to what the others said, wheels/tires, header.

_RED_ I'd say look into a rear motor mount. And then tune. Also look into suspension like springs and sway bars. There is plenty out there still for you. Me on the other hand I'm starting to run out of stuff lol

TboneZX3 Tunes. There are discussion threads about two companies who will be releasing engine tunes to the public very soon--SCT and Injected Engineering.

You might also want to look at the Aftermarket parts & mods thread.
