Oh yeah the lower mount that will help it out as well for better feel. I recommend the Energy Suspension lower mount inserts. They are 24 bucks shipped from ES

True, but you can add a nice sound system with it adding weight. Replace the the speakers with some nice Infinity Kappa's, with baffels and a high quality head unit with a good amp. That would give you "sufficient" volume, great sound, and a kick.

This is coming from someone who competed in SPL competitions with his focus and had 3 12" subs pushing over 3000 watts through them.

You can make the car sound good with out adding more weight with amps or subs.

With an automatic; the SCT3 also has the ability to set custom shift points. So you could do an optimized stock tune; and a more aggressive tune as well.
