Yes I added the Sport emblem. Thats worth at least 5 hp right there.

The car is listed as having the sport package so I figured why not.

I am going on a road trip this weekend to Navarre Beach Florida about 4 hrs west of my home location. I will test it out. So far it feels like it pulls harder. Our cars are week upon 1st press of the gas but then it picks up the pace quickly. To me the car feels stronger. I also love the sound of it. I knew it would only pick up a few hp but I am happy with it.

I was going for a more agressive look from the rear and getting a little more performance was a plus. One can say its expensive but to each his own. I look at the back of the stock one and it looks like Ford ran out of budget. I have corrected that.

You could do it cheaper but it might sound like a 2 stroke chainsaw. The borla has a nice rumble.
