factory mods

I have a 2014 st3. I have been looking at installing ford factory racing parts on my car. I found a kit from ford racing for about $1700.00. I don't really want to put aftermarket parts on for 2 reasons I work for ford and I would like to keep it all ford parts. It has exhaust cold plugs and intake. What do you guys think before I go spend the $$ bills on this?!?

You won't void the warranty with Ford Racing, but that's only if its installed by the dealer and I wouldn't trust a dealer with performance parts as far as I could throw the service manager.

You bought a sports car/hot hatch. Have some fun with it for crying out loud.

If it doesn't have a tune with it then it's a waste

I just didn't know if anyone has had any better luck with factory parts vs aftermarket. The kit has to tune with it....I was just see witch route to take before I spend the $$.

COBB, CP-e or Mountune would be a better place to start
