SVT "Sleeper"

Ok, this is just an idea that came across my mind. What would the "ultimate sleeper" build consist of? As in, no one can tell what mods you have, even pass as stock.

Right now I have a Borla Catback and a UDP. People never see the pulley (usually cause its at night) and people blow off exhaust as a mod....since it's all too common with cars nowadays.

Heres my list:

K&N Drop-In
Rear Mount
STS
Hi-flow cat
Tune
LSD
Aluminum flywheel
upgraded clutch


Anything else that can be done to our cars without being blatant? I was thinking about a throttle body - since some people wouldn't see it below the factory airbox.

Just trying to keep my car fun on the weekends - everyone loves to see a "stock" car kick ass on friday nights

The Focus Sport cam that should be out anyday would go nicely with that list I'm thinking.

Get your headers coated and leave the heat sheild on, it'll cool down the engine bay. Pop a carbon fiber hood on and paint it. You could probably get away with the exhaust cam gear if you painted it and left the cover on. Also you might be able to get a SD/live wire pack as long as you get the black ones. I think with all that you'd be the ultimate SVT sleeper.

I think that also having a nice SCT upgrade would be most excellent as a 'sleeper' mod.

Cheers!

just do subtle things to ur car that don't draw too much attention to it. for example don't get a huge ricey can on the back of ur , debaging is also a nice way to pull of the sleeper look. Ive done some things to mine that not alot of ppl notice what i have ( ppl who dont know much about focus's)

The Focus Central throttle body is only offered in black now... same as stock. Nobody would really know the difference!

Nobody would know about the cam gear if you put the cover back on.

High flow cat would be good, but if someone looks under your car they'll know it isn't stock... it'll probably make your exhaust a hair louder, but you could probably say it's from the catback.
