2012 ford focus se hatchback build

Hey guys,

New to the "car" world, ive been a jeep guy for the past 8 years.
Just picked up a focus and looking to do a tame build.

Ive already ordered a bunch of smaller items:
-black oem head lights
-black fog light bezel
-led bumper daytime running lights
-silverstar bulbs for hi/low and fogs
-inchannel window deflectors
-hood edge deflector
-mud guards front and rear
-oem all weather mat package
-carbon fiber mirror covers
-black st style spoiler (yes i know my car is white)
-black gloss black wrap for the roof
-window tint

All pretty small basic things. What i am looking for help/opinions on are some of the following items, yes ive done research and read through thread after thread (although my search wont work on this forum).
Looking to order from steeda.com:
-eibach pro-kit springs 0.8" drop
-front and rear sway bars
-ram air intake (or cold air? $90 for a shield seems pricey)
-fuse box cover, oil cap, shorty antenna

For exhaust i was looking at the capaldi racing st exhaust with the rear bumper valence. i cant really find much on it for who has it, is it just a stock st exhaust? all oem parts? or their aftermarket version of it? i dont want anything too loud or crazy.

Since id already have the rear valence, i was looking at ordering the 3D carbon kit for the rest of the valences, im not sure if i can order just the side skirts and front bumper valence. if not, i could always sell the rear to one of you guys! lol

anyways anything im missing, or any input would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you got a good list. The only thing i would add would be a tune either from Tom or Injected. You might consider wheel spacers or just getting bigger wheels. otherwise it looks like you have it covered. O and i'm pretty sure you can buy the side valences seperate at RebelDevil.

Can they tune autos?? last i had read i thought only the st's and the 5spds could be tuned, if thats not the case and you can tune the autos then sign me up :)
ive been looking at wheels, im undecided whether to go with 17s or 18s. i moved out of the city finally so i bought this as my commuter but i can never leave anything alone and stock lol. my fiance has the escape with the 1.6L turbo and she thinks its faster than my focus, i cant have that lol.
the .8" drop wont bring an 18" wheel and tire inside the wheel well will it? i dont want to have to camber the wheels or anything.
does rebel devil has a website?? ill google it before some one suggests it

If this is going to be your build thread I would suggest having an admin move it to the showroom and build section. Sounds like its going to be a fun build.

Might I suggest steedafor the rear sway bar and eibach sportlines instead of pro kit springs. The sportlines give you more of a drop without it being slammed. Also I wouldn't bother with the front sway bar. Most people will tell you it gives a undesired effect for handling in fwd cars.
