    ZFG 91 tune

    When I first got the LMS tune I got both the 91 and the 93 tune, Most of the time I run the 91 tune . But on occasion I will use an octane booster and run the 93 tune. Now I have a Sport not an ST but my car response well to the 93 tune. Be careful and never run 91 gas with a 93 tune unless you address the octane

    I am working on this and should have an answer soon. Because the mold is made of fiberglass it can be modified. So not all is lost, it is just unexpected. I still don't understand how it can fit on my car but not another. Please do not compare it to the stock part, the CAI sits higher than stock and I include longer rivet clips for the front 5 holes. It is not intended to lay flat, and the front edge of the intake sits different than stock by design. Also, it will not allow the hood to close unless you have installed all of the clips first. So if you just set it there and try to close the hood it will not work, it must be installed properly first. I am getting some help from a fellow forum member and hopefully together we can find out what is going on in the next few days.

    It is so strange as I test fit each one on my 2016 Sport before it is shipped.

    As you all know this is a homemade product and I do not have a huge company helping me with this project. It just came to my attention that there is a problem with fitment on 2015 FWD Sports. If you have ordered an intake from me and you have a 2015 FWD Sport or any of the 2015 models Edges there may be a problem with the hood latch. Please let me know so I can refund your money ASAP. I apologize for this, I am learning as I go. When I check the parts catalog every 2015 through 2018 Edge uses the same sight shield and this intake is a replacement for that part. Ford FT4Z-16A238-A. This information came as a shock to me as they all use the same part and how it can fit on my car, but not another is a mystery right now. I have stated in the past that the holes are not aligned absolutely perfectly but they do line up well enough that all the clips go in, and the clips cover the holes, hold the part, and they do their job as designed. So that is not a problem. If you have a 2015 Edge and you ordered one, please PM me for a refund. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause.

    I was able to get out of bed today and mark the trim lines. I also managed to cut one of them out and get it ready for hand sanding and fitment, but it was too much for me, and I had to take a break. I need more recoup time, I don't want to push too hard too soon.

    Lol thanks I needed a good laugh. Geez I am such a dork. 😆😂 Although I am not fit for work right now, I did find out that the carbon fiber has been made and that they are shipping tomorrow. 👍

    I had a good start, but now I am a bit behind on trimming the Black ABS intakes, please bear with me . I am doing the best I can considering the current circumstance. Believe me, I want to get them done ASAP and shipped. I feel my reputation is on the line because of this delay and if you have been following this thread you know that I am a good worker bee. I hate this delay, as much as anyone, but it is out of my hands right now. I apologize for the inconvenience and will resume work in a few days when I feel better. Best for me to stay away from power tools for a bit. LOL.. I am still taking orders for the next run that could happen as early as next week. One carbon intake has become available in that run, and there will always be Black ABS intakes available as the material is in stock at the shop.

    lildisco volunteered his time and energy to confirm for us that the intake does not fit 2019, 2020, or 2021 Edges. The mounting holes do not line up, the hood's rubber bump stops do not line up, and there is no way to modify it to fit. Ford made these changes starting in 2019.

    Thanks ImLivingOnTheEdge, I am so sorry that it did not work out for you. I am going to concentrate on filling and shipping orders right now. I do have some ideas for the future that may include something for the ST. Possibly by summer if things go smooth and as planned.

    Because of all the questions that I have been receiving, and the fact that this is a long thread, I feel I need to review some things. 1. The intake only fits 2015 to 2018 Edges. It does not fit the ST or 2019 and later Edges. 2. The carbon material is not solid carbon fiber. Solid carbon fiber is not thermoformable. Therefore, I found a composite material that would work with the mold. According to the manufacturer, It has a thermoplastic base layer with a thin carbon-fiber layer laminated to it, then a clear gloss protective layer laminated over the carbon fiber giving that great look, exactly as in the video and photos. 3. I have no control over the shipping cost, and I get individual quotes for each order. I do not mark up the shipping, but I do round it off to the closest dollar. I hope that answers some questions. If anyone has questions I will be happy to answer them.

    You bet, check your PM. Just a reminder the intake only fits 2015 to 2018 Edges. It does not fit the ST or 2019 and later.

    Thanks for asking. When I picked up the parts I had a chance to talk to the tech who works with the mold and runs the machine. He said the mold is working well and there are no problems or maintenance needed. So far, so good 🤞

    Got a good start today . Have completed the rough trim on all of them, and hopefully can get a couple done this weekend. First ordered, first shipped. I believe that is the fair thing to do.
