MY TB ST2 build thread
 
Bought my TB ST2 back in Nov 16 2012. Sold my 2010 Boosted Focus for 12K and used some of that for a down payment. Currently serving AD in the US Army. Diesel mechanic, which is what I love to do.


Have:
-Fswerks 93 Oct tune. 91 also.
-JBR 88A RMM (Not as harsh as others state. Maybe cause Im used to 5 Ton Diesels and HMMWVs.
-JBR Solid Shifter Mounts
-FSWERKS 3" Cat-Back
-Husky Liners for Front/Rear/Cargo
-Forge Motorsport Dual Port Bypass Valve
-Buschur Racing Drop in Filter (Temp)

Short Term Parts to come:
-Steeda STS (set at 44% reduction throw)(On hand)
-Steeda RSB
- JBR OCC (Part On hand)
-35% Front/ 20% Rest Tint (Scheduled on Feb 16, 2013)
-Aluminum/Stainless steel Charge pipes.
There's more but can't remember as of now.

Long term:
-FSWERKs CAI
- Aluminum Intake Manifold (AM companies will make one)
- Different set of 18" wheels with ET +35-+38
- H&R Coilovers (Had on last car and LOVED IT!!!)
- Quad Retrofit with Morimoto Mini H1/Matchbox and Retrofit Fusion Fogs.
- Better brake pads (sick and tired of dust buildup)

I'll be mostly using FSWERKS products because of the fact that I've been using them for about 3 yrs and have had nothing but positive things to say for those guys. Of course, I'll have few parts that'll be from other companies.

Old Pics but Soon update:

Contents after all items removed. It comes with detailed instructions which can be found on their site also. There's a Box inside a Box.

Will be doing the install on either Friday or Saturday with help of my buddy. I'll have this, Cat-back, and Short throw shifter/bushings to install. Will be a productive weekend for me. Once all done, I'll be testing out my new GoPro Hero 3 BE with the new exhaust and STS.

Not a huge fan of black cars,but the st looks amazing in black. Nice progress so far.

My FSWERKS 3" Cat-back comes in tomorrow during lunch. Will take photo's of that and post up.

William, at CFM, gave me some bad news. They're sold out on their stock of STS right now and Steeda is making a fresh batch. I was hoping it'll be in before this weekend but I don't see it happening.

Thanks for the comments on my last 2nd Gen. This is just the beginning. Above list will just keep growing as more parts are released.

So far, all I have is a quad retrofit with morimoto mini H1 and Matchbox projectors.

Wheels of same size different offset. (not much because of clearance)

Coilovers to drop it atleast 2"

The aftermarket world isn't really focused on exterior mods as of yet. We will see.

Do you have a link for the catch can you got?

The st looks great in black. I'm over the tangerine ones, it seems like that's the only colour the let dealerships have in Saskatchewan
