Hi and welcome, a lowered ST naturally sits higher at the rear so if its been lowered its probably been done all round, as for the clutch, a good test is to get into 6th at low ish revs and plant your foot, if the revs build and the car doesn't pick up speed as it should then the clutch is gone but in this weather even with good tyres the car will spin its wheels.

Cambelt is due at 100k.

33 PSI front and rear if it's just you in the car I think mate.

This thread goes into detail about the exhaust sytem, yes you would see benefits -

The bluefin you have is a device that has effectively remapped your cars ecu to provide more power.

The cambelt is 125,000 miles or ten years according to Ford. I plan to replace mine this year when the car is eight and done around the 40,000 mile mark!

You're going to need to be a full member to view those threads though as they're in the technical section. Full membership also gives you access to discounted group buys and discounts from sponsors, so well worth the £10
