  1. Fantastic write-up with clear instructions and proper photos. A nice upgrade with good bang for the buck.
  2. The oil pan is plastic and it mounts to aluminum. Because of the different expansion rates of the two materials, a leak can appear. It is critical that the dealer follows the manufactures instructions to the letter in order to do a proper repair. If they rush the job or cut any corners the new pan will leak. Beware of dealers coating the entire oil pan with great gobs of RTV, that is not a manufacturer-approved repair and is a temporary fix at best. Here is a link to a Ford notice on the subject. It is super important to give the RTV time to cure before use. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10164418-0001.pdf

    Swaybar 2019 upgrade?

    ADDCO Part # 2452 1.125 It is an easy swap. Please check the link I gave you for the locks that work with the sway bar. Contact Addco directly just Google Addco.

    Swaybar 2019 upgrade?

    There are a few things that you can do. I found that adding a strut tower cross brace to my 2016 Sport helped immensely with steering in tight canyons. I had more control with less effort and the car would take a line better under load. You can also add an Addco rear sway bar to your car and some H&R Springs these three things will transform how your car handles. I tested these items by timing myself through a portion of the Mulholland Snake. Stock, the best I could run the top half of the Snake in was 1 min 14 seconds. After adding the X brace, springs and swaybar the time dropped to 1 min 4 seconds. That is 10 seconds and 14% faster up the hill I am sure that adding summer tires to my car also helped some. You can find all of these items here in the Ultimate 2.7TT Parts thread.

    New ST-Line

    Perhaps this is old news to some, but it is new to me, so I thought I would share it. In short, Ford is introducing the ST-Line to bring the looks of the Edge ST, but not its price or performance, to the standard Edge. The model includes sporty-looking body cladding, an ST-style grille, more aggressive side skirts, a set of gloss-black 20-inch wheels, and requisite ST-Line badging (so no one confuses it for a real ST). Like almost all other Edge models (sans the ST), the ST-Line relies on a 250-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four for motivation. Those horses are routed to the front wheels by way of an eight-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel-drive, however, is an option. The Edge ST-Line will likely do the trick for those who care about looking like they drive a sporty crossover. If you prefer value and sporty looks over actual performance, then this might be the Edge for you.
  6. So far there has been no problem with water intrusion, or any other problem for that matter. The hack works fine and as far as wind tunnel testing goes it has had real-world testing for over 17,000 miles now. I have had the car at 80mph in driving rain. And in 30mph street traffic when it is raining so hard the wipers have trouble keeping up. As well as undergoing numerous car washes. Through all this there has never been a problem with water intrusion. The car has been at over 110mph at the track and no problem. The insulation is fine and is as solidly attached as the day of install. And like snmjim I have made a CAI part that needs to be manufactured, it will work as a stand-alone part or in concert with snmjim's intake for the ultimate CAI for the Edge Sport /ST.
  7. I don't know if the rear side windows can be preset. You can adjust the rear liftgate to open to a preset height. This is accomplished by opening the gate to the hight you want then hold the close button down until you hear a beep.

    Livernois ST Tune

    In a turbo car the fuel you use is important. The higher the octane the more power you can make without knocking. If you have an ST try 91 or 93 fuel you should feel a positive difference over 87. A LMS performance tune with 93 will make a ton more power and accelerate way faster than running on 87 with no tune.

    Livernois ST Tune

    It might have a bit firmer shift, other than that driveability is not affected. If the shifts are to firm they can be softened, no problem. The LMS tune is great for every day driving.

    Driving in La La Land

    . Yup, booze will do that to you. Glad the brakes are working well for you. Looking at your video they work great.

    Does 2.0 Need a Catch Can?

    The JLT can is a plug and play kit specific to your vehicle . It is easier to install than changing a tire. You will need a wrench or socket set and a screwdriver. If you plan keep the car for a few years do it now !
  12. I agree with your father the V8 is buttery smooth compared to a V6 or I4. When I jump into my V8 car after driving my Edge the difference is huge. The V6 Edge is faster and gets better milage but the V8 car is smooooooth and has more torque off the line. V8 engines run smoother than many other engine configurations because the engine produces a power stroke every 90 degrees, whereas the 4-cylinder engine produces a power stroke every 180 degrees and the 6-cylinder engine produces a power stroke every 120 degrees. The large displacement big block V8 produces gobs of torque at very low RPM making for a great smooth effortless ride, the engine is just loafing along not working hard at all.
