Cool Miami peeps! Installing some stuff soon, any help? :)

Hello!

I've recently re-acquired my Focus from my brother in-law in Texas. I've already started some small projects.

Mostly browsing the junk yard for some replacement parts I needed, but I'm finally dipping into some new stuff.

I replaced my shifter because the button was stuck inside when I got it, pain in the ass to continually pull that out every time I wanted to switch. Ended up being that the button was somehow upside down, I have no idea how that could happen. But, leave it to others to mess up your car.

Also got some hail damage I have to get fixed as well as some paint chipping on the hatch. :(

Today I did the Stealth CAI intake mod and am fairly happy with the outcome. I'll be picking up my mother from the airport tomorrow so I'll let her open up a little on the highway to get a feel for the new increase in power.

My Rear Lower Torque Mount is needing to be replaced and I ordered the VF Engineering Mount from FSWERKS as well as the Lower Stress Bar.

As soon as they come in I could use some help if anyone wants to hang. We can eat some Five Guys Burgers afterwards and get a feel for the new install.

After I finish up this mod I'll continue on with all the suspension modifications and prep the car for AutoX.

Well/Bueno, I'll be off! Great to finally have my little ol' Blue back!

Tochi

Sent you a PM, just waiting on the parts to arrive from FSWERKS at this point.
