I'm really not sure how far I'm going to take my EB Convertible, but here's what I have so far.
2017 Triple Yellow Ecoboost Premium Convertible:

- April 2018:
Purchased used from the dealer w/ about 27,000 miles on it

Windows tinted w/ 15% driver and passenger, and 5% for the other three
Pros: Great look
Cons: Hard to see out of windows at night

Resonator and Muffler Delete / Black Chrome Exhaust Tips
Pros: Good exhaust sound (IMHO)
Cons: A bit of droning


- May 2018:
MMD by Foose Spoiler (*No longer installed)
Pros: Great looking spoiler, well constructed
Cons: Hits the antenna upon opening the trunk (convertible)


- June 2018:
MMD Hood Struts
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install
Cons: Opens quickly (with hands free) which could cause damage to struts or hood


- July 2018:
Painted the Plenum and Fuse Box Cover

Carbon Fiber Wrapped Fuel Door (*No longer installed)

Plasti-Dipped Wheels Black (*No longer installed)
Pros: Inexpensive DIY application
Cons: Does not hold up to car wash pressure hoses

Painted the Calipers in Yellow


- August 2018:
Painted the Wheels in Gloss Black


- September 2018:
MP Concepts Rear Decklid in Gloss Black w/ Emblem Delete
Pros: Emblem delete looks great
Cons: Decklid is easily scratched and does not come with replacement hardware

Carbon Fiber Vinyl Fender Stripes (*No longer installed)
Pros: Gives the car a sportier look and breaks up the coloring
Cons: Collects wax buildup on edges

Custom Chin Splitters
Pros: Sporty appearance


- October 2018:
Tinted Tail Lights
Pros: Great look (all blacked out in the back)
Cons: Having used spray tint, it's not easily removed if wanted

GT Style Upper & Lower Grilles
Pros: Aggressive appearance. Fairly easy to install


- November 2018:
Spectre CAI (*No longer installed)
Pros: Cool "sucking" sound when accelerating
Cons: Does not seem to improve HP or overall performance at all

Diablosport 91 Octane Tune (*No longer installed)
Pros: Increases throttle response and overall HP/Performance
Cons: Causes "throttle delay/lag" at mid-RPM acceleration

Accel Performance Ignition Coils (Yellow)
Pros: Smoother idle, Improved Throttle Response, Easy to Install
Cons: Not cheap. $180+ for a set of 4.


- December 2018:
Cobb Stage 1 - 91 Octane Tune (*No longer installed)
Pros: Increases throttle response and overall HP/Performance

Carbon Fiber GT H Rear Spoiler
Pros: Nice appearance. Carbon Fiber really shines in the sunlight
Cons: Held on by 3M tape. Does not cover OE spoiler mounting holes


- January 2019:
Vogtland 1" lowering springs.
Pros: Sporty appearance, Inexpensive, Great ride (not too stiff or bouncy, handles better in corners)
Cons: Time consuming and difficult to install.

G-Plus Performance Intercooler
Pros: Large size Intercooler, inexpensive, well made (good welds, close fins), ships from US
Cons: Time consuming to install, requires front bumper support bar to be removed

Cobb Stage 2 - 91 Octane Tune (*No longer installed)

Turbosmart IWG Actuator (7 psi)

On the other hand, I've done no cosmetics, (except for the splash guards and the full frontal of PPF Suntek Utlra). All my mods have been under the hood and exhaust. I figure keep the outside bone stock, let everyone think it's just a regular stock EB until I step on the gas! :)

In just October I've got the tail lights tinted, purchased a COBB AP, plus the stage 1 91 octane tune installed, GT style upper & lower grilles and a Spectre CAI... feeling "sporty". :)

Update... I've removed my Spectre CAI and re-installed the Stock airbox along with my K&N filter, plus have uninstalled the COBB tune and am selling the tuner.

Why the sudden switch to stock?.
It's a bit of a long story, but suffice it to say that I'm hoping to recover some of the money I've recently spent and will go back to my DiabloSport Tune which is already paid for.

I was getting a little worried something happened to the vert', glad everything is ok.

Nope everything is fine with the car. And if I can't sell the items, well, I guess I'll just re-tune to Cobb Stage 1.

Well, the Spectre CAI is back in, but I did sell the Cobb AP Tuner. Now I need to get the DiabloSport Tune back in the car. :)

Given the "performance" results between the Cobb Stage 1 tune and what I'm seeing after going back to the Diablosport tune, I've decided that I have to go back to Cobb. Thus, I've purchased my 2nd Cobb tuner, this one used, after selling my original. Oh man if the wife only knew the money I have spent... wowsers! :)

If Only I knew the money she spent on a quarter-mile prepped truck I'd probably puke. (Hush @MrScharfenberger YOU know the cost of 1320)
Let's hope that the rear end lasts me a while. :) I know these 1/4 mile runs are not good for it, but I can't help myself.
