Mods on the new ST
 
Whats the 1st thing to mod on the new st? Who's going to do what? A tune, w/ more boost? Lower it? add a bbk? Exhaust- yeah. A torsen for sure. How 'bout turning the volume down on the sound tube & turning the exhaust note up? Anyone w/ any input? Come on guys you know you want to mod the new st.

Make it breathe better and see how it responds then go from there;I'm curious how far simple mods will take it on the stock turbo.

first thing will be getting wheels i like

then hoping my buddy at SCT will be able to tune her

then... exhaust pending if i like how it sounds, since it exhaust was engineered to have a special sound...?

other than that... nothing till all the other underhood bolt ons and such pop out

My first mod is tint then go from there.

Open air intake, short throw shifter, tint as soon as I can get 'er done.

I plan to see what Ford Racing will sell from the ST-R that fits well on the ST (hood pins/exhaust/carbon fiber hood).

In a silly way, I want to look at getting a shark mouth in plastic tape going around the front grill area (maybe with magnets if there is enough metal).

That sounds awesome. I'd airbrush it on for sure. All the R model parts are a given for sure. That reminds me of the shark like teeth on the pop up scoops on the '71-'72 Road Runners.

If I was 20 years younger I might think about painting it on. Rather have something I could peel off.

I need to mess with photoshop, but the front grill on the ST just looks like it needs some dressing. Might be a neat theme to do a silver ST w/shark teeth and Army aviation markings and air brushed rivits...

If I get a silver ST I plan to get the ST-R BBK rims when I replace the tires. Kicked the idea of having racing strips like the ST-R painted on.

I really like stock looking cars that have sleeper looking mods (never once used after market rims on a vehicle). But one day I want to change things up and the ST will become a daily driver.

Just asking you= Who said frpp suspension is god? I like my Eibach sportline system & I also like the H&R sport cup kit too.

what is usually acceptable and not void warranty? Exhaust, Intake and see how much Tom can tune out of the ST...
