That itch

Anybody hate waiting till the next mod or sometimes wish they have a billion mod dollars lol man do I I've been wanting to add stuff so bad recently. So to hold me over I've purchased some plastic dip to screw around till the funds suffice. But that itch sucks haha

Try Canadian winter. From where I am sitting I can see four mods that I'm holding off on for a few reasons but mainly the freezing cold!

Well i did a lot of research and came up with my own list of mods to do right off the bat, that were one, affordable, two made a big difference and three made it a better daily driver.

that was

Rear motor mount/ insert
rear sway bar
drop in filter/ snorkel delete
and tune.

I just ordered the tune today, and the sway bar just came in the mail today so i will install tomorrow. i would start with those 4 things and then go from there.

then, at least for me, i'm going to start upgrading suspension. I want to do the ford racing springs with Ford Focus ST front struts and the rear shocks from the focus handling package. Also, wheel spacers.

I know how you feel, even though the mods I am doing are simple(adding a auto dimming mirror and taping a cover over the rear bumper lip under the hatch) its been too cold or rainy/snowy.

Got a hood protector coming someday too but its backordered...
