Looks good, i think the front grill, mirrors, door handles and rear hatch strip would look real good painted to match the body. But how it is, they all match with a black and it works. I like what you've done so far, looking good

Very nice! Love the Blazing Copper, though I'd agree w/ Volcom...I think it'd look good if you painted the grille, mirrors and door handles body color, like the ST.

I've considered painting the handles and mirrors...it may eventually happen. I was thinking about swapping my grilles ...grille back to the stock black part (it came the way it is from Ford as a black ST grille, but the stock silver grille has a black grille area). That way it has black around the edge will keeping black in the center so it doesn't have a separate part look to the grille.

Stage I Crane Cams work very well with cams. I will be doing the cams before the turbo, so I hope to get some decent 14 second runs NA before the boost.

Do you have cam gears to use the cam adjustment tool on?
No. The tool is designed so you don't have to have the gears. It is much cheaper and easier to use. You can degree your stock cams too (I am doing this before the Crane cams get here), but I can adjust the Crane cam more aggressively and get even more power out of them. ~12-14whp set to kill.

The wheels aren't that bad. While not the best I like 'em over the older split 5 spoke rims they used to use on the SE. Anythings better then rockin the steelies...

Still though, $500 for some new rims would really spice up that ride
