There's another user on here who has done a "diffuser" for the 2012 have you seen that at all? Might give you a starting point to build on if nothing else.

Yep :) His idea was really my starting point, but I'm going for more of a touring car approach...it's gonna make the rear end look extremely aggressive, especially with the dual 4" exit tips ;)

Curious to know how it went? I want to do this in another month or two.

sadly none of it has taken place....due to the transmission being SEVERELY screwed, and no supported tuning.....now if Ford can fix it, all plans are GO! and it will get pimp! :)

hey did they fix ur tranny?
I got clutches/seals replaced almost 2 months ago. It's been waay better since then. It will still occassionally buck though. ANd so Itook my car back and they ran diagnostics, test drive, and reported it to Ford engineers who said mechanically theres nothing wrong with the car, or the transmission. They issued me the DCT characteristics document. They said the "symptoms" I was describing was normal operation/characteristics of the DCT trans.

its really good news because at least they made sure it was okay before giving me that document.

on the otherhand it's still a bit unnverving knowing that many people have not had any problems. I don't believe the excuse that these people with no problems simply haven't noticed, because there are plenty of "pro's" out there who have not noticed any problems either.

Ok guys....so time for the updates.....I have ordered a set of Vmaxx lowering springs, Whiteline f/r sways, and a ST brake conversion kit. I went to Formula D last weekend, and had the ONLY modified non-ST MK3 Focus there, it was received so well....I am now part of Griproyal(car group dedicated to Grip/Time-Attack cars) I am getting a few pieces made for the Fofo one off, and will be posting pics as soon as all parts are on the car......and I'll be keeping everyone updated on a custom front lip my buddy is fabbing ;)
