    Big turbo

    Keep in mind that Xtra is a sport with a 2.7L V6 twin turbo & the OP is a 2.0 Ecoboost

    ST at race track

    Pretty sure the Vette could have caught up with that ST in no time, but we can't see the un edited video. Plus, who's to say that the ST wasn't lapped more than once by the Vette or the Lambo? The world may never know.

    ST at race track

    My bad, assumed that you meant both the Lambo & Corvette because they were behind the ST. I'll amend my post to say just the Vette 👍 Still, saying that the Vette in the video was getting smoked by the ST is most definitely quite hilarious.

    ST at race track

    I don't understand you're argument. You're comparing apples to oranges. The Vette on the track wasn't from any of those era's, neither was the Lambo. Find an Edge or equivalent SUV/CUV from those era's for a more accurate comparison. If you think I'm criticizing the ST, I'm not. I would really like one or a 2016+ Sport, but they're out of my price range. But saying that the Vette was getting smoked by the ST is quite hilarious.

    If anything, the Vette was racing the Lambo & both were being slowed down by the ST. Neither of them were 'hanging' with the ST, the ST was in their way & they were waiting for the straight to pass 'legally' on track track days. (On open track days you're usually only allowed to pass on the straights or designated areas by the track marshals)

    ST at race track

    The fact that it took him at least 1 lap to catch the miata from when he says "pass the miata" , yes destroyed. He couldn't catch him on the back straight or the front straight....even when he's in view of the camera. Took him at least 1 lap to catch up (nice editS) & pass the miata from his 1st comment about passing it. Ground mainly made up on the long sweeping front straight & back straight.

    ST at race track

    Neat video, but the Miata destroyed him in the corners (which it should) & he only gained any ground on him in the straights or long sweepers. The corvette spinning was 100% driver error & not trying to catch the ST. Maybe he could of done better if he left it in Sport Mode on his exits. He probably would have done better if he spent a few days driving it instead of taking to the track immediately after he got it. Still a decent video.

    Does 2.0 Need a Catch Can?

    the link you posted isn't for the 2.0. This one should work. I'd imagine the cabling is going to be slightly different: https://www.jlttruecoldair.com/jlt-3-0-oil-separator-2013-2019-ford-escape-2-0-ecoboost-passenger-side/ I used TeamRXP that catches stuff in boost & in vacuum. It's a little more expensive, but worth it imo. You can also get a more 'normal' one, but I don't know a good brand off the top of my head. A more 'normal' one would just be a simple connection between the intake manifold & engine block. The TeamRXP one has 3 lines coming off the can. I notice on my 2.0 that I catch way way way more in the winter, than in the summer. Probably due to the condensation & cooler/denser air. Same on my CX7, which has a 'normal' can on it.

    Does 2.0 Need a Catch Can?

    Short answer: Yes if you want to keep your 2.0 running for a long time. Coking can cause hesitation, rough idiling, bad mpg, etc. A catch can will help stop inpurities from sticking to the back of the intake valves.

    Rotors & Pads..Power Stop, Stoptech or EBC?

    Here's my 2016 SEL brake swap if it helps you out Click Clicky

    Rotors & Pads..Power Stop, Stoptech or EBC?

    Accidentally put the wrong rotors in the cart in the 1 image, but it adds about $200 to the cost if you went with Centrics in the rear.

    RockAuto.com usually has a coupon available if you do a Google search.

    Rotors & Pads..Power Stop, Stoptech or EBC?

    You're losing mass which you also need to dissipate heat. If you somehow get snow & ice on your rotors, the slots & holes would fill with that snow & then melt, possibly causing ice to form in those groves & holes & throw your rotor out of balance. Rotors get hot obviously & would usually melt the snow, but warm water freezes faster than colder water too. With the z23 kit, I will sometimes get grabby brakes on the 1st or 2nd stop, but is gone once they heat up.

    Rotors & Pads..Power Stop, Stoptech or EBC?

    All i can recommend is that Centric Blank Premium Rotors & the Power Stop Z23 kit. I have those on my 2016 & they're great. They handled the Tail Of The Dragon (look it up if you don't know) pretty well. If you don't track your car, why are you looking at drilled slotted? I've tracked & raced on Centric Premium Blanks (obviously not on the Edge) even had a caliper lock up on my CX7 for a few hundred miles & my rotors were fine. Slotted & drilled won't gain you anything. In fact, you'll do more harm than good. Don't want to get into a debate, but if you're not going to track your edge on a consistant basis (even then i wouldn't recommend them), then don't waste the money on drilled & slotted. Unless you're trying to go for the Fast & Furious look, then go for it.
