All of that equipment in the car is for monitoring and tuning?

Thanks for clarification on the exhaust exit. :thumb:

Correct, I meet with the Ford engineer who was driving this car and tried to get as much information as possible. Will have more details later!

What kind of hp are they getting? Our repair guys are saying it has more then the EPA is saying. Also, ask about whats up with the wheel hopping

Don't know anything about wheel hooping. Also, unsure of final HP. It pains me to say this, but, after sitting in this ST3...I am reconsidering my plans on what I buy next. The engineer was very in love with the car, but my student loans may take priority over this purchase...may end up with a Fiesta for now. Another interesting note, the engineer highly recommended the partial leather seats over the full leather. Claims to be better bolstered.

Outstanding pictures!!! Thank you for sharing them.


Did you get to sit in the seats? They look like they might push your head forward a tad...I hate that!!

Yes, I was in the drivers seat. Very tall bolsters, very comfy. I did not spot any issues with the head rest, and I assume they are adjustable.

Thank you bmod! Love to hear that the engineer digs the car (one more confirmation that this car will be all that we have come to expect). Also glad to hear the vote for the partial leather (as my order is for a ST2)!

MOST excellent work!! Thank you!! Also thank you for this inside info about the seats! Seats are everything to me!
I had a chance to sit in a ST3 at Cleveland Auto Show and those Full Leather seats are great! The most comfortable seat I've been in.
