    That must have been it. My coworker is from Palmer so that's the right area. I have no interest in facebook but I do wish I could get to one of these get togethers. I'll be at the Chicopee Moose lodge car show tonight for Ford night if anyone is in the area!

    A co-worker saw three Nitrous Blue RSs and a White ST out for a ride saturday around Sturbridge, MA. Anyone from here?

    I'm not expecting it to solve all your issues but try sunoco 93 if it's availabe near you. It's floating around the internet that ecoboost motors dont like the nitrogen enriched fuel or whatever that Shell uses. I was running strictly Shell when I was stock but ran into issues while dialing in...

  5. What exhaust to get?

    Focus RS Performance
    I had my heart set on the valved mountune one as well. It was the only one I had heard in person and knew they made good stuff. When a great deal on a special burnt titanium tip scorpion exhaust came around I had to jump on it. I've grown to love the more aggressive styling of the Scorpion and...

  9. OEM tune vs Mountune

    Focus RS Performance
    @turbojr74 only if you dont trust who will be driving your car. correct? I can use the standard turbosmart WGA and resort to stock tune just fine but if someone revs it too high it will overboost?
  10. OEM tune vs Mountune

    Focus RS Performance
    @turbojr74 I'm not sure about Tune+ but I believe my mountune AP has a "valet" tune just in case you dont trust who will be driving your car etc.
  11. Wheel Spacers

    Focus RS Performance
    The 15mm work with forged wheels not my standard ones. He took a little material off front studs and everything is fine. I only had my commute home but I feel like I definitely noticed a difference.
  12. Wheel Spacers

    Focus RS Performance
    I'm not quite sure either. There is a little bit of material in the "pockets" of the standard wheels which seem to be butting into the studs. He took a micrometer and the front studs are .01 longer than the rears which sit flush. That's all I've got. He's trying to take that tiny bit of...
  13. Wheel Spacers

    Focus RS Performance
    So I finally went for it and got some 20mm Eibach spacers for my standard wheels. Thinking this would be the easiest install since my mudflaps was obviously wishful thinking. The rears the tech can get to sit flush and "feel good" but the fronts just cant seem to be seated. Does anyone have...
  14. OEM tune vs Mountune

    Focus RS Performance
    Unfortunately that's just not true. The scorpion is still noticeably louder than stock in normal mode and looks aftermarket even at a glance. With the new regulations and cameras in the bay etc.. the inspector would have failed me if I didnt' know him. @turbojr74 As far as the waste gate...
  15. Which Front Splitter Looks Best On the RS? HELP ME PICK!!
