Yuppp on prices. Luckily I have my stock airbox in the garage still and will be waiting on any mods. Thanks for the offers though. I'm just working on installing the suspension crap Ive had in the corner of my office for months to see if it transforms the car
Suspension installs are pretty easy on the 05+ cars. The rear is so simple and the front strut/spring assembly is so big, it's easy to get tools/hands on.

Yeah front is very similar to a focus so once I borrowed an impact gun it went really well. H&R Race, Koni Yellows, MM Camber plates. Doesnt even ride bad like some people whine about. Havent done the back yet though so that might be what breaks peoples backs

If she doesnt live up to my handling expectations I might have to ditch her and go with an older, smaller, egg-shaped lady

The Stangs handle great, probably better, than Focuses. But the feel is lacking. I missed being able to feel what I'm doing.

I'm willing to bet Ford will offer 0% on new ST's soon....just a thought!

Well, these arrived today. I got them in less than 24 hours since ordering. TireRack.com is stupid fast.

Ok, wheels on and taillight housings replaced. Feels more eager to turn since the new wheels are a touch lighter. Shit pictures but whatever. I'm tired.
