What it really comes down to is the fact that Dustin had the opportunity to do the swap before many others (myself included) and did it out of necessity more than just wanting to look like an ST without the money for one... That would make him a poser. I'll admit, I'm a bit envious, but now he has taken all the guess work out of parts for others. LOL

Don't forget to add the OEM intercooler behind the lower grill to get the complete effect.

Thanks for the informative post. It's awesome to have all this in one thread. I pay sales tax if I buy from Tousley but I can pick the parts up myself since its only 20 minutes away from me. Probably less in tax than shipping all that stuff.

Tousley has a body shop at the sane location as well right? If so, if I ever need a new front bumper I'm taking ir there.

thanks again and your Focus looks great, ST emblem and all.

Bahaha *takes a bow*

I'm just laughing at all these amazing opinions lol. I'm so putting an srt badge on my focus now.

Like I already said Dustin I think it looks good. The ST has the better bumper anyways

I like the ST bumper too. I almost back dated my st to the svt front end, but changed out the suspension again instead. Next go for the rear st bumper.

If someone mistakes this for an ST they don't know Focuses that well anyway.

Are we going to see pics of the install or just the finished product?

Everything I have is in my build thread. I didn't do the install and with my work schedule, I wasn't at the body shop when they put it on.

I understand the reasoning - if he needs a new front end and likes the ST then use it. I myself wouldn't use the ST emblem. What I am wondering though is will the grill fit on a regular 2012/13 focus?
