I too am working on getting Stage 3.Sweet action! I like the gains and I am excited to see what Stage 3 brings as well. I will probably wait and get 2 & 3 together.....
ironically Nick , I was just on yourwebsite....googled 2014 Milltek...and up you came... nice site...Hey guys, I work at a shop called ModBargains in La Habra.
We're currently in talks to sponsor the forum as a vendor - anyways we are a full-service installer, regularly install intercoolers, downpipes etc and have recently started carrying Fiesta ST stuff (since I've started working here). We pride ourselves on service and installation, and are not far from Cobb's SoCal location either - because the install bays at Cobb SoCal as I understand it, can get pretty booked.
While at the moment we've got one lift, we're in the process of expanding, have ordered two more Bendpak lifts, an Alignment Rack, are building a small paint booth for bumpers/spoilers/trim and have already had our new AWD Dyno delivered (which should be set up soon).
We're also a proper Cobb distributor and Installer, and have been doing Cobb products for BMW's N54/N55 turbo engines for years now. Unlike most shops, almost the entirety of the shop's 28 people are enthusiasts and are well respected in their respective communities.
If we can comfortably manage pulling the fascias off of $100,000+ cars on a regular basis, you can trust us to take damn good care of your car.
and we'll probably blog about it and take photos too. http://blog.modbargains.com
If Cobb is busy, I encourage you to give us a try and see why our staff are not salespeople, they truly are "Modification Experts".
It's worth noting that I do not do sales myself, I help select what new products to offer, take photos, blog, do social media and web backend stuff.
What's more, you can trust that we'll do any Cobb installs perfectly - I have personally partnered with Cobb (meaning I don't do this for ModBargains, I work directly for Cobb as a freelancer) and produce how-to videos for Cobb demonstrating the install process for Focus ST and Fiesta ST, so you have the guy who Cobb trusts to show you how to install the product overseeing your install, too.
Having personally already installed a COBB FMIC into a Focus ST, I have really looked at how our cars go together and what's involved in getting at the intercooler on our car, and thankfully it is a MUCH, MUCH simpler install with much less modification of the car involved.
I look forward to getting the kit and I am excited to show you guys the results of the new RMM once they lift the embargo and allow me to show you.
