The '05-'7 st comes w/ a 23 motor, 4wdb's w/abs & tc. A few interior tweaks including black sport seats w/ a little red spashed on, leather wrap wheel & shifter w/ red stiching. The outside has svt mirrors, body colored door handles, moldings. Front grille has body color surround & rear bumper has black painted lower facia w/ a sport tuned exhaust, & a lot more. How far do you want to go & what your looking for. You could just get a st or mod your se that you have.

Only difference on the front of the car would be the grill (surround is paint matched and the mesh) and possibly the addition of fog lights if you don't have them.


ST:


SE:



I'd also suggest finding better seats than the ST seats, dont recall those being any different other than the color of cloth on them. I'd find SVT partial leather or full leather recaro's for up front.

Yeah I'm definitely just going for fog lights and replace the useless plastic inserts. Not a whole new bumper. I would like to know the best way to go 2.0 to 2.3. I'll do some searching I'm sure somebody has done this.
