And very quickly I swapped over all of my parts from my previous FiST. And here is how he sits today:



Big plans, little car.

Its nice to not have to wonder what random part will fail next... The other car had less than 30k on it. It didnt make any sense.

Sometimes, you just get a lemon. I'm sure this one will treat you much better.

I wish it had been a lemon. But it was negligence on the part of a Ford Dealer that caused it to go downhill.

Was there any deal worked out with Ford on the trade in or did you eat the lost?

I actually work for corporate for a nationwide dealership chain, and they were able to help me out more than the original dealer (who worked on the car) ever even offered. I ended up chewing my negative equity up and getting Recaros.

Threw on my Maxton wing extension the other day and finally installed my GReddy exhaust last night. I’m so happy with everything so far.







I love the wing extension. It’s subtle but gets the job done nicely, and the exhaust is awesome. Even with my stock downpipe. It’s deep and throaty, not like the MBRP or the other loud ones.

Any reviews on the Koni oranges paired with swift springs? Any drone with the greddy exhaust? Love the setup!

Time for an update:

I also re-located my catch can when I got the 2J intake.

Any more pics of how you mounted it? I hated how jumbled everything was in that area with the DM OCC and 2J Intake right next to the strut tower, intake is in a box until I figure out a mounting solution but it looks like you used the provided bracket attached to what exactly?

So what I did was unbolt my horn, the 2019 only has a single tone and its on a straight bracket. I bolted the catch can to it and used a short ground wire / zip ties to secure the horn around the opposite side of the bracket.
