My 2012 FocuS Sedan build (already in progress)
 
So I figured that by now my car deserved it's own thread. I plan on owning this car for a long time and also to make it my own. I have already done a good amount of modding but it seems like everyday I have new ideas of things to change/upgrade. Here's a list of mods I have done to date:
Interior :
Pioneer AVH-3400 BT (double din no nav, yet)
JL-360/4
JL C2 6.5" components
JL C2 6.5 coaxils
Alpine MRP-500
Alpine Type R 10 (600 watt rms in custom Idyllic kerfed port box)
Dynamat on all doors (trunk and floorboards next)
Floor matts (OEM Ford vinyl)
5% 3M back 5 windows with eyebrow (CA legal)

Exterior/Performance :
Painted stock hubcaps gloss black
Tinted rear tails
Magnaflow 2.25" custom cat back
K&N Typhoon intake

Soon to come:
MS3 RMM
Bloxx weighted shift knob
F2 race header
Eibach Pro Kit or Steeda springs
Sparco Asseta Garras 17" (bronze or lime green)
ST steering wheel
ST partial leather seats (or something more sporty)

So I'll be posting mods and upgrades as they come. Here's a few shots of what it is for now. Let me know what you think.

What do you mean by custom cat back? Like regular magna flow 2.25 15072 till the rear axle then customed to dual exit?

TheDriver916 02-17-2013 11:22 PM

Well some people think it's the cat back designed for the focus, but it is just a dual exit magnaflow muffler that has 2.25" piping ran from the cat. I paid $300 for a custom one, when Magnaflow wants $700 for their exact setup.

Did you just go to a muffler shop for custom one? $300 is more in my range rather than the 700..

Ya they gave me a slight discount for my friend being in ex military and i had brought previous cars there too. But you shouldn't pay over $400 for everything.

Finally someone installed this dashboard system kit
From where you got it? And most importantly how was the installation?

Really sick of my Basic radio system . I need this!

Update:
Wooy Just noticed its Pioneer AVH-3400 BT
Can you possibly share all the links if you bought them online ?

I will have to take a look then. If I can get a good custom piping and muffler installed for under 400 that would be close to my price tag. Better than 700! Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I bought the metro adapter on eBay. You have to cut out a couple plastic pieces behind where the stock one mounted. But it wasn't too bad to my knowledge. I paid about 170 for the Metra dash kit and about $320 for the Pioneer 3400. If I would do it again I'd spend the extra $80-100 and get the 4400. 7" screen vs my 5.8" and 4v signal sent to my amps. But mine on the other hand has awesome features and now works with ios6 thanks to the update from pioneer this January.
