A US ST's day trip to Luxembourg

I took a day trip to Luxembourg and decided to snap a shot at the border. I am going to try to do this every country I go through on road trips.

Also I ordered some Rally Armor mudflaps and am waiting for them to come in, will snap pictures once I have them.

I am looking for a light bar for the front in winter since I am in a tiny village with a little bit of a drive into town and base.

Cobb Short Throw Shift Plate

I recently installed the Cobb short throw, set at 30% and after putting some miles on it have to say that the shifts definitely feel a lot better.

Also just used my bonus plus some to order the Cobb stage 2 (CAI, RMM, FMIC and Accessport), ford racing exhaust, and a set of OZ Racing rims for my summer tires.

More update will be coming as I get parts installed.

Build/Mod Adjustments Continue

Decided to adjust the Cobb short throw from 30% to 40% today and it feels much better in my opinion. Since I didn't get any pictures up when I first installed here you go.

More to come soon once parts start arriving in the mail. I can't wait!

I also realized that i never posted pics of the mudflaps so here are those as well, I wasn't sure I was going to like it but they have grown on me.

Update

Here is an update from the work I did this week with the nice weather. Cobb CAI and shift knob. Cobb stage 1 tune with the accessport. Put the summer tires on the new rims and painted the calipers black. What do you all think so far?
