Question, have you put the ST on scales yet to see what your vehicle weight is currently? Wondering how much different it is than stock.

Installed the oemautoart front emblem on along with an ST emblem black out inlay that I found for $5 on eBay.
And now I’m gonna show you how to cheat. Technically you’re supposed to remove the whole damn front end to swap the oval. It’s too damn hot outside and I’m too damn lazy for all that. They send you a template to mark and drill for the new alignment pins...but they also have the old ones marked on the template...so I put both to work. A 1/4” drill bit right down the original pin locations to cut the pins off and the emblem just falls off. Drill for the new pins and get creative with some 3M VHB tape and you don’t even have to open the hood. I saved the nuts and I’ll throw them on when I install the intercooler. Done in 30 minutes.

Sure glad I looked back through some posts and found this as I have had the red OEM autoart badges sitting in my office for a month or two dreading removing the front end again !!

Having removed and remounted the stock 21's this past weekend to put in the IC I have a much better appreciation of the weight of your wheels, lol. Those stock 21's are f'ing heavy and I ain't gettin' any younger.
You should try the 24x14’s with 37x13.50’s on my F250…I’m way too old for that crap. AA7C91FC-60E6-45CF-AB65-DC8A9066FDB5.jpeg

Racing Brake 380mm rear rotors shipped today. Looks like I have some work to do soon.

Also got the FenFab cold side IC pipe to replace the flattened stock part. I’ll be doing some measurements to compare after I cut the oem pipe up. View attachment 7017
Nice stuff. You're lucky, I'm sitting here in Dallas waiting on springs, exhaust and catch can. The catch can should be here pretty soon but the exhaust is late August and the springs are early October. F'ers all took my money though, lol. Since I have the standard brakes I am not looking forward to that bill, that could be the most expensive upgrade I'll have to do. I'll have to follow the Racing Brake table for upgrading.
