Focus STaRS american flag vinyl - looks great!

I saw the Focus STaRS (get it?) American Flag Quarter Window Decals and thought, dang that would look awesome on the ST!  I was right! 👍👍



They are a larger sheet so you'll have to lay it out on the glass, trim the edges, then place the vinyl and trim as needed - took me about 5 minutes per side... very nice quality and subtle patriotism!

Goes great with the Magnetic Metallic paint!

Boomba Oil Catch can - doing it's job!

I installed the Boomba Oil Catch Can a few months back...
http://2016-fost.blogspot.com/2017/03/boomba-racing-stage-2-oil-catch-can.html 





7,000 miles later - see what's in the catch can?  ICK!


Boomba short shifter installed!

Finally after about 6 months I got some time today to install the Boomba short Shifter with Shift Plate



I'll be honest, it took me about 5 hours to install everything...



Position        % of OEM Reduction
 Adapter plate
1 80%   20%
2 70%   30%
   
Shift lever
 1 90%        10%
 2 80%   20%
 3 70%   30%
   
Combination
1 & 1 72%   28%
 1 & 2 64%   36%
 1 & 3 56%   44%
 2 & 1 63%   37%
 2 & 2 56%   44%
 2 & 3 49%   51%

I went moderate - which is PLENTY at 36% reduction in shorter shifts, it feels amazing!  The bushings make the shifter feel like it's a slotted shift-gate, seriously amazing feel - no wobble, just BAM into gear... LOVE IT!

Here are some pics of the install :)

 The dash and shifter tunnel all torn apart - EEK!
Aluminum bushings installed on the shifter too!  All finished!  Nice lower stance, and the shifts go CLICK-SNICK!  :)
