    NorCal New Member and FiST Owner - Hello

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Long time hot hatch fan... GTI's mostly... new to a FiST...very excited to be in a light, tossable car!!!

    Found a great, very low mile 2016 base car in Kona Blue, slick top. Won't track or AX this car... just want a fleet footed canyon carver that can be DD'ed as well!

    Look forward to some fun drives and getting on the mod train. I like to do them incrementally so as I thoroughly understand what each one accomplishes in terms of improving the quality of the drive.

    By my research, it seems the path will be as follows, over time:

    1. Rear motor mount
    2. Cobb accessport (reading a lot about Cobb vs Mountune... leaning Cobb)
    3. FMIC
    4. Short shifter, shift bushings
    5. 215/40/17 tires (I understand the factory Bridgestones are very good already), maybe with lighter wheels

    Try to make smart decisions with high bang for buck mods.

    Thoughts and opinions welcome, especially regarding who would be good vendors to buy from. Mod Bargains is well known to me but as a Calif resident I am hit with sales tax buying from them... any others?

    Cheers.

    Hello neighbor!(sorta) :D

    May I suggest the Cobb RMM? It does an excellent job with minimal NVH.
    If you are still under warranty you might consider the Mountune MP215. It won’t affect your warranty as long as you have a Ford dealer do it.
    I deleted my sound tube and I’m glad I did it.

    Cheers
