Built for you, wheres your imagination? If you get bored with a stock ST then big turbo, clutch/flywheel, lsd, brakes, suspension, etc...sky's the limit; an ST just a much better starting place. I'm pushing 400whp, much fun...lots of time spent wrenching

Tons of fun in a factory ST. I'd take that any day over an SEL with a turbo. Not even close.

Do you have a manual or auto? If its an auto definently trade up. If manual swap in a new st motor or turbo kit.

More fun in a car that runs properly than one that's constantly breaking in order to get to the next trim level's performance.
