Horn Replacement and what else?

hi members/ im new here . I need to put a horn in my 2013 scion FR-S

Im going to put a Ferrari horn in, seems sweet. open to other suggestions ???

can any of you advise me on anything else i should do, upgrade, look for, once I get the front off the car? would hate to not take advantage of anything else needed while front is open.

I have found one how to video for the horn? On youtube, a white car, the video is a bit fast and shaky. any better repair guides on video?

thanks all

doug

It is a horn. How hard can it be?
Unhook battery.
Disconnect wires.
Unbolt horn bracket.
Reverse order to install.

I usually just rev at them. Immature? Maybe. Fun? Absolutely.

I was simplifying to be melodramatic.
Still very easy I understand.

foglights
intakes
reinforced bumper clips (a really good idea when you have it off).

Turbo is good to do while the bumper is already off

Wait, Ferrari horn? Your name is Doug? Are you from New Jersey or the car gets parked there?

Will we read about this install on Oversteer?
