Yeah, the stubby I had on my Mk3 faded pretty bad. I'll definitely be looking for something of a higher quality this time.

My springs should be in Friday, so hopefully I can find a reputable shop to not destroy my wheels doing the tire swap this weekend.


Went ahead and did my mandatory no-tire mockup today-

You given any thought to a shark-fin, or shorty antenna? To me, the standard OEM antenna on the Focus is one of several shortcomings in the Focus' upscale reach.
(The exhaust pipe on the non-ST Focus being another example.)

When I look at your car, I see shark-fin.

Cheers!!
I think we're probably going to go with shorty antennas, but I haven't fully decided yet. I like the shark-fins, but color match scares the crap it of me...

dyn085 Well, everything's installed now. I'm running the base map for my stage 3 tune and well probably hold off on datalogging until I get my intake in and it warms up some more. She sounds really effing good and has much more power than I was expecting. I don't know why I was expecting less, but I'm currently braking traction in third gear at 50 mph effortlessly. Part of that is a function of the tires and temp though.

Now that the downpipe is out I will be able to start installing parts...assuming the 02 sensors come out willingly...
