Macky's FF'13 ST Build Thread

I don't have too many plans for the ST, but I'm hoping to have them done before FF'13

Plans:
FSWerks Intake
Coilovers
Matte Black Fifteen52 Tarmacs OR Work Euroline DH
LED Tail lights from the Focus Electric

Coilovers:

Haven't seen many options out there yet, but H&R has one out and I'm waiting to see what Eibach comes out with.

Here is the H&R option

Wheels:

Work Euroline DH
I'd either find them already in matte black or buy them and get them painted to matte black. This is how they come from Work.



Matte Black



Tarmacs
I don't have a great picture of matte Tarmacs, but I can special order them from Fifteen52



Pictures:

Coming Soon

Comments:

I'm not looking for stretch or poke on the wheels and coilover setup, I just want it to look OEM+. I was messing around in Forza when I found the Work wheels and put them on an ST in game and almost started drooling. We shall see if I can actually find them!

Nice can't wait to see some progress, those wheels will look good if done right.

This is my 2012 SE on Tarmac's with H&R Coilovers to give you an idea. I have the H&R's set at the highest setting in the rear and factory setting for the front (8 coils up) with all season Falken 722 - 235/40/R18

Wheel is textured gunmetal (looks and feels like high grit sandpaper)




Good luck!

Looks like this will be a nice build. But i'm not sure what i think of those Work wheels. They look "DUB" to me, I guess i'd have to see them shopped on there

The Works are nice but they're more VIP in my opinion. They could work though...

I've added a couple things to my list after seeing some of the products that are becoming available:

SCT tuner from FSwerks http://www.fswerks.com/collections/f...-focus-st-2013

Turbosmart Kompact DV http://www.fswerks.com/collections/f...ter-valve-25mm

Cobb Lower Engine Mount http://www.fswerks.com/collections/f...ivct-2012-2013

FSWerks Cool-flo intake http://www.fswerks.com/collections/f...-focus-st-2013

I'm ordering the intake tube as bare metal because I'm going to have it powder coated white after I get it.

I've also decided to not go with the WORK wheels and to go with the Tarmacs. But now I'm stuck deciding between getting them in white or matte black. Any opinions?

nice, i'd go with the black wheels. Honestly, I think your stock ST wheels would look good in black too.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
