In the beginning there was a 2014 SGM SE Hatch...



I plan on making this the best daily driver I can afford.

I have started with the Snorkel Delete, ST air inlet, and Green open-end drop in filter.

1. Remove snorkel and all plastic pins without losing them to engine gremlins. Expert Mode [ON] off.


3. Install ST air inlet for maximum overdrive.

4. Install Green air filter. You might want to keep a stick handy keep away all the women that will come running when they hear the new engine sound.


5. Apply stickers for +5 Charisma.


6. Enjoy delicious Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 15. (Pictured above in ex. X51)

I love the way the car sounds now and I can definitely feel a difference in throttle response.

RIP good gas mileage.

Thanks.

Small cosmetic stuff like a/c nobs etc. will come soon.

Next big thing I want to do is put on some Eibach SPORTLINE springs! I need to be lower to the ground. After that I want to get a RSB and then start thinking about exhaust.

I love my sportlines and exhaust! Also I've done the HVAC knobs and love them. One of the next things on my list is a rear swaybar. I think I'm leaning towards whiteline.

I guess, technically, my next mod will be the piano black grill replacement. [8D]

Just ordered some emblem overlays (Metallic Silver background with Yellow OEM Ford logo). Hope it will look good and add a little pop of color.

Also here is a random pic from Firday. I took it walking out to a parking lot and I thought the light was hitting just right.

Not sure what "Gotz STICK!" means but I assume the caps and exclamation point is a good thing? [:D]

He's meaning you shift it yourself.
That's what I assumed. I had to search for a 5spd with the Sport package. All the ones around here were automatics. I love manuals, I've never actually owned an automatic until we bought my wife's Mazda3 last year. I had a manual Civic, Xterra, RSX and now the Focus. I get to decide what gear I go around the corner in, not the Ford engineers. [driving]
